1 bag of shredded potatoes, prepared (a little underdone)
6-8 Great Day Farms eggs
8 slices of bacon, fried
Shredded cheese
Fresh-ground salt and pepper


Cook and season your hash browns, but warm them through, making them a little crisp, also keeping them soft, not too crisp, but warm (to make them easier to mold); set aside in a bowl to cool.
Prepare your bacon and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray.
Break your bacon in half, and create an "X" with it on your baking sheet; repeat for the remaining slices of bacon.
Take a tablespoon or two of hash browns, and place it onto the "X."
Using your spoon or your thumb in the center, create a well deep enough to hold an egg; repeat for each "X" until all the hash browns have been used. (You should have some left over.)
Season your hash brown nests.
Crack an egg into the hash brown hole; use any remaining hash browns to help solidify the walls of the hash browns if they seem weak.
Season the egg, and add shredded cheese around the sides of the egg.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard.
Set on a plate to cool before serving.
Can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for easy breakfasts in the morning.
