The nest egg recipe with bacon It has a million variants. With a bread bun, with fries, in a bread tart, with ham ... I have used the one proposed in the book The best recipes with eggs that the Magi have left me with mashed potatoes and baked.
To the original recipe I have added a little bacon to satisfy my taste for meat fats, but you can do without it if you want the recipe to be vegetarian, although I personally love the touch it gives to the dish.
Ingredients for 2 people
- 2 beautiful potatoes (500g), 2 eggs, 100ml of milk, 50g of butter, 100g of bacon in strips, cheddar cheese (or other to taste to grate) salt and pepper.
How to make eggs in the nest with bacon
Though prepare eggs in the nest with bacon It's relatively easy, I'm not going to fool you either by saying that it's a quick recipe, because it takes time and has some fun in the kitchen. Of course, the end result is well worth the effort.
The first thing is put the potatoes to cook. At least about 25 minutes if they are not very large, although if they are like mine you will need a little more (or use the express pot) until we can crush them with a fork to make mashed potatoes, which is the next thing we will do next of draining and peeling them, adding first 50g of butter and then 100ml of milk while we beat with the blender.
While the potatoes are cooking we will have put the oven to preheat to 200ºC, buttered two casseroles with butter and golden bacon, which we will add to the mashed potatoes, reserving a little to decorate the top. Then we distribute the paré between the casseroles, we make a hole for the egg and we shell it.
Before putting the casseroles in the oven, salt and pepper to taste, add the bacon that we had reserved and grate some cheddar cheese on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the white has curdled (but not the yolk) and we serve very hot.
