Hash Browns Nests

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

These are great for breakfast or a snack when you're watching the tube. If you don't like smoked sausage, you can use regular breakfast sausage, ham, or bacon. They're really versatile. Delicious no matter what you put in them!

I made this tonight for our evening meal and we both agree that they were very good. I was forced to use the little small hash brown cubes because my store was out of regular hash browns, but they worked just fine. It actually made enough for 6 cups so I added an extra egg and I used some evaporated milk in place of the cream. Served with hot biscuits and cream gravy, yum, yum.... It's a nice change to serve breakfast food as an evening meal.
