Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups shredded refrigerated or defrosted frozen hash brown potatoes
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (4-ounce)

  2. Combine potatoes and cheese in medium bowl. Sprinkle with seasoning; toss to mix.
  3. Divide mixture evenly among four greased 1-cup ramekins or custard cups; press against bottoms and halfway up sides. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven 10 minutes. Break and slip an egg into each potato nest. Bake until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
