Eggs in Mashed Potato Nests Recipe

  • About 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 7 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 small strips bacon, partially cooked

Beat 1 whole egg, then blend with melted butter into mashed potatoes, with salt and pepper to taste. Beat until light and fluffy.

Fill a buttered, deep pie plate with the potato mixture, smoothing the top flat. Make six depressions in the mixture with the back of a spoon, and break 1 egg into each depression. Lay the strips of partially cooked bacon over all.

Bake in 400 oven until eggs are set and bacon crisp. Will serve 6.
