Creamy mashed potatos mixed with sausage and spices come together to create a "nest" to hold an egg Creamy mashed potatos mixed with sausage and spices come together to create a "nest" to hold an egg
Number of Servings: 2


    2 oz Gimme Lean ground sausage
    3/4 C mashed potatos
    1/8 C Wheat germ
    1 egg white or 2 Tbsp Eggbeaters
    Parsley and Thyme

    2 eggs
    Black pepper to taste


1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2.) Cook the sausage in a pan with a little olive oil; set aside on a paper towel to drain any excess grease.

3.) Combine the mashed potatoes, wheat germ, egg white, and sausage (or a vegetarian varient). Also add the parsley & thyme to taste

4.) Form the mixture into two balls, and place them on a lightly greased baking sheet

5.) Press a hole in each ball, but be careful not to go through to the pan

6.) Crack an egg into the centre of each hole; with a large egg, some of the white will overflow which adds a nice touch, but use a medium egg if you would rather that not happen

7.) Place in oven for 15 minutes; then, set to broil for 2. Grind pepper over egg to complete

Number of Servings: 2
