Potato Easter Nest

Our potatoes turn into nests for Easter! An easy and original idea that you just have to garnish with bacon, grated cheese and egg. In other words: what you have in the fridge ;-)
Once your potatoes are grated, a few minutes to four will allow you to give them this special shape. A perfect recipe to start your Easter menu!

  • muffin tins


  • Peel the potatoes and grate them. Put them in a colander and squeeze well to get out as much water as possible. Add the 2 eggs, salt, pepper and mix well.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of grated potatoes in each cavity of the muffin tin, previously greased. Then, with your fingers, make the potatoes go up on the edges to form the nests. Bake for 12 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
  • Cut the bacon into small pieces and grill them in a hot pan. Also fry the quail eggs.
  • When the potato nests are cooked, let them cool for a few minutes, then gently unmold them.
  • Place grated cheese in the bottom, then a few pieces of bacon, and cover with a fried quail egg. There you go, your quail nests are ready!
