Shredded Potato Nests with Spicy Aioli {Brunch Recipe}


Today’s Easter brunch recipe for Shredded Potato Nests with Spicy Aioli was developed as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. I’m a member of the Collective Bias community and I was compensated for my work, but all thoughts and opinions in this post are my own.

C’mon, you guys…let’s play a game!

Whoops. Wrong game to play when you need to read words on a monitor.  Umm, never mind the crazy lady behind the blog.

Picture bundles of parslied shredded potatoes, diced ham, seasonings, and cheese, baked up until golden brown, then picture popping them into your mouth with a bit of spicy aioli. Fabulous, right?! These shredded potato nests are creamy, spicy, crunchy, and delicious, and they can be served up as an appetizer or a side dish at your next brunch.  Come on in to my virtual kitchen and I’ll show you how quick, easy, and fun these are to make!
