Ingredients:  
1 bag frozen shredded potatoes
We use Simply Potatoes
1/3 c. vegetable oil or butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 eggs
2/3 c. milk
1/2 c. onion (finely diced)
1/3 c. bell peppers (finely diced)
3/4 c. cooked sausage (diced)
2 c. cheddar cheese (shredded)

Directions:
Directions:
Defrost the potatoes. Heat the oven to 400. In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes, 1/4 cup of the oil or butter, salt, and pepper. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the potato mixture into each cup of a 12 serving muffin tin. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of each cup, then bake until golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Remove the nests from the oven and allow them to cool. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and milk. Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining oil or butter to the pan and heat. Add the onions and peppers to the pan and saute until both are soft and the onions are slightly golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook until heated through. Add the egg mixture and stir until the eggs have set and small curds have formed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the potato nests from the muffin tin and place them on an oven proof platter or cookie sheet. Fill each cup with some of the egg mixture, top with a sprinkling of the cheese, and place the nests in a 375 oven until the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes. If you like, garnish each nest with a little parsley. Serve warm.
