I started Laura J. Perin's Bargello Egg on Saturday, and am thrilled to report that I made some pretty good progress in between eating and Game of Throning. It's amazing what you can accomplish during 21 hours of HBO series programming:
But I have to say that the best part of the weekend (in my opinion, at least) were these little beauties:
I watched The Pioneer Woman make them on her show last week, and said to myself "I bet those would be pretty tasty for Easter brunch". Boy was I right. Delicious! (I will confess that I used already prepared hash browns right out of the bag -- the refrigerated kind, not the frozen -- and they worked beautifully despite the warnings from PW that they might not.) They did. You can find the recipe on her web site here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2013/03/eggs-in-hash-brown-nests/, or just do this:
Spray a muffin tin really really well with Pam (or a cooking spray of your choice).
Smoosh the hash brown into the muffin tins and make a little indent in the middle. (Build a nest).
Bake at 450 degrees until the hash browns are brown and crispy.
Crack an egg into each nest.
Bake at 400 degrees until the eggs are done the way you like them.
I hope that your weekend was swell! Woo Hoo!
