When I saw this picture of these hashbrowns nests I thought 2 things: Wow, those look beautiful & delicious and they also look like way too much work! But I read through the recipe and actually, it seemed very manageable and able to multitask the steps so I decided to go for it. Boy am I glad I did!!!!!! These we're even better tasting than they looked and very simple. Also, it's easy to customize it to your personal taste. I'm not a big fan of sun-dried tomatoes so I used roasted red peppers instead and added some chopped hot cherry peppers for a little kick...perfection! Definitely take the risk and try this recipe...you won't regret it.
