Eggs in a Nest

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but let's face it, not many of us make time for more than a quick bowl of cereal in the morning. With all of the wonderful breakfast dishes out there, I love an occasional "breakfast for dinner". When I was younger I loved when my mom made eggs in a nest - it always seemed like a special occasion when she did. This is another meal that can be made in a time crunch. Crispy hash browns make the "nest" and eggs are cooked on top of them. Top it off with shredded cheese (and ketchup in Ryan's case) and you have breakfast or dinner that will make any kid smile.
Eggs in a Nest
1 Tbls. olive oil
2 Tbls. butter
3 c. hash browns
1/8 tsp. onion salt
4 eggs
1/4 shredded marble jack cheese

Heat a frying pan to medium heat with olive oil. Add hash browns and top with cut butter. Season with onion salt and pepper. Cook for about 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. Flip hash browns and make a 2-3 inch indent for each egg. Place eggs on hash browns and cover to cook eggs approximately 5 minutes. During the last minute add shredded cheese to melt.
