Potato Nests

19 Apr

potato nests labeled

Ingredients (makes 1 dozen):

  • 4 medium potatoes (pictured are yellow potatoes), grated
  • Cooking oil / non-stick spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  It is very important to grease your muffin tins well as we need our nests to pop out of the tins with ease!!  I used grape seed oil on a paper towel and liberally greased each muffin tin (feel free to use easy non-stick spray!).potato nests raw
  2. In each muffin tin, add at least 2 Tablespoons of your grated potatoes and gently press into each muffin tin (be sure to press them up the sides!!). potato nest prebakedBake for about 25 minutes, until golden. They should pop right out of each muffin tin when ready, but  if they are giving you a little bit of trouble, gently use clean hands to help the nests escape!potato nest potato nest
  3. Not sure what to use your nests for?!  They’re scrumptious filled with simple sauteed veggies, a cute serving bowl for party platters for legumes, and absolutely delish (if I may say so) with my spinach quiche filling to make Spinach Quiche Nests!spinach quiche nest
