Egg and Crispy Potato Nests

Egg and Crispy Potato Nests from Weelicious

Egg and Crispy Potato Nests for Mother's Day. Wait, nests? Read on.

Do you like crispy fried potatoes? I don't know many people who don't, especially when they're in the form of hash browns, all golden and crunchy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. And when served alongside a perfectly cooked egg, it makes for brunch-time excellence.

But what if that egg was cooked on top of the potatoes? Now we're getting somewhere even more exciting. The result tastes equally delicious, but it looks just like a beautiful bird's nest. Pretty fancy, but hard to do? Not at all. In just a few easy steps you can create this adorable and memorable dish.

When it comes to holidays and special occasions in our house, we tend to overdo it in the food department. Mother's Day is no exception. Hubby generally ends it by cooking us dinner, but the kids start it off by making me a surprise breakfast in bed. In the past few months Chloe has become the official egg cracker in the house. She's gotten really good at it and likes to practice a lot. Thankfully I've been buying loads of Safest Choice pasteurized eggs. She went through a lot of them helping me test this recipe!

If you think this recipe sounds as delicious as I attest it is, I highly recommend you print it out and hand it to your family to make for you this Mother's Day while you're sleeping late or lounging around the house. Hopefully you'll be treated to the Mother's Day breakfast you deserve_ a gorgeous tray of fruit salad, maybe a strawberry yogurt parfait, and a plate of these Egg and Crispy Potato Nests.

      Am Mai from UK. After being in relationship for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr Patrick, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful Dr Patrick who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email [email protected]) you can email him if you need his assistance or you whatsapp him +1 662 493 2087

    I really want to make those nests right, tried 5 times. Egg spills, potatoes are uncooked. I bought a new pan maybe that's what I need but how about the egg spilling? Can you make this recipe into a video?

      You need to get your pan a little more hot before adding the eggs! If the pan is hot enough, the eggs will begin to cook the second they hit the pan and won't spill!

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Dr Isikolo brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am from iceland. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Dr Isikolo for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Dr Isikolo. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Dr Isikolo said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him. Email: [email protected] You can also Whatsapp him on +2348133261196

    I have been in great bondage for almost 2 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband, we were happy and leaving well until he meant his old time time girl friend and he started dating her outside our marriage before you knew it he stopped caring and taking care of his own family it was to the extent that now he was planning to get married to her and divorce his own wife, i have cried and reported him to his family but he never listened to any one but to cut my story short i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to his wife and 2 kids on my search i saw people making testimony on how their marriage where restored by DR ISIKOLO i pick his email and i narrated my story to him and he agreed to help me and after performing a spell on the third day they both had a quarrel and he beat his girlfriend up and he came home begging for i and my little kids to forgive him that his eyes are clear now that he will never do any thing that will hurt his family again and promise to be a caring father and never cheat again. I am so so happy that i did not loose him to the girl all appreciation goes to DR ISIKOLO for you are a Great spell caster and to whom this may concern if you have a cheating husband or wife you can as well email DR ISIKOLO him on [email protected] You can also WhatsApp him on +2348133261196
