I've mentioned prior to this that I research and edit recipes.
When I find something I like, I research it, dissect it, re-create it and make it my own.
This is an adaptation of a recipe from The Muffin Tin Chef.
I've been working on a new recipe this week .
I photographed ( photo to follow) the notes that I'm working on to give you an idea of how crazy the process is.
Here's the recipe:
Texas Hash Brown Nests
3 C of frozen Hash Browns, thawed and blotted with paper towels to remove excess liquid.
2 Eggs, beaten
3/4 C Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS Adobo seasoning
Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 1/2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese, garnish
1- 4 ounce can of Chopped Green Chiles, drained, garnish
1- 16 ounce container of Sour Cream, garnish
1/4 C Fresh Chopped Chives, garnish
Bacon for garnish / Bacon Bits for Vegetarians, garnish
Pre heat the oven to 450 degrees
Spray a 12 Cup Cast Iron Muffin Pan, or the 7 Cup Cast Iron Biscuit Pan with a vegetable cooking spray, or whatever Muffin Pan you have!
Scoop 1/4 C of this mixture into each well and press to covet the bottom and sides.
Spray again with cooking spray. This will give them a nice texture!
Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven.
Loosen the nests slightly with a paring knife but don't remove them from the pan.
Cool them in the pan for about 5 minutes and then remove them to a serving platter.
These can be served with a Poached Egg on top...... yummy!
What a great Brunch idea!
Everyone can customize their own nests. ( notice the plural.... make sure you've made enough)
Fill each nest with the garnishes:
Bacon or Bacon Bits!
Peace in the Kitchen!
