Tortilla Hash-brown Egg Nests with Bacon, Queso Manchego, and Tomatoes.


This not only has one but TWO nests, consisting of tortilla and hash-browns, with crunchy bacon, Queso Manchego cheese, and tomatoes. I have to be honest, if my breakfast doesn’t intrigue me, I won’t eat it. I love color and flavor.If it’s colorful with flavor , I can try anything once. This was Deliriously delicious!

Ingredients for 4 Servings

  • 8 slices bacon, crisp
  • 4 slices Queso Manchego cheese
  • 1 cup frozen hash-browns, defrosted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 small corn tortillas
  • 16 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño,thin slices seeds removed
  • Pinch of Adobo Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • cilantro, for garnish
  • green onion, garnish
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • cooking spray


1st step
Generously spray olive oil cooking spray on a large cup muffin tin and set aside.

2nd step
Place the defrosted shredded hash-browns in to a bowl add Adobo seasoning, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Let rest while oven preheats.

3rd step
Preheat the oven to 400F. Spray both sides of corn tortilla with cooking spray, place in muffin tin. Place small amount about 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture into each tortilla in the muffin cup, being sure to line the bottom and the sides. Since the potatoes will shrink when baked, make sure you go all the way to the top of the muffin tin when lining the sides. Bake for 10-15 minutes, and until the outer sides appear lightly golden brown.

4th step
Decrease oven to 350F. Remove from oven. In the center of each hash brown nest, add crisp bacon, tomatoes, cheese and then top with one egg. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, until whites are set, but yolks still appear soft.

5th step
Allow to cool for about 3-5 minutes in the muffin pan. Using a butter knife, run it around the edges of each hash brown nest and gently remove it. Top with remaining freshly ground pepper , addition tomatoes , jalapeño, yellow bell peppers, cilantro, and green onions
