Breakfast Egg Muffins with Hash Browns
What I love about these breakfast muffins is that you probably already have most of the ingredients that you need to make them at home.
Before you start, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Then add hash browns, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, salt, pepper, and paprika to a medium bowl and mix well.
Spray a 12 count muffin pan very well with the cooking oil spray. Divide the mixture in the bowl into each muffin tin and push down in the middle of each one to create a nest. This recipe will make 18 cups so you can do this in two batches or make one in a 12 count muffin pan and one in a 6 count muffin pan.
Place the potato nests in the oven for 20 minutes and then remove. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees.
In another medium sized bowl, add your eggs, milk, ½ cup cheese, and bacon. Mix this well.
Fill each hash brown nest with the egg mixture. Make sure to keep the egg mixture at the same level as the hash browns.
Place the breakfast egg muffins with hash browns back in oven and let them cook for another 15-17 minutes or until the eggs are set.
Remove them from the oven and let the breakfast muffins cool for about 5 minutes before serving. Remove them from the muffin pan and garnish the eggs with parsley and additional salt & pepper if desired.
I love making a big batch of these and freezing them. Then, when I am having a busy morning I just grab a few from the freezer and pop them in the the microwave for 1-2 minutes. You can also make these and refrigerate them from 1-2 days before warming.
These Breakfast Egg Muffins with Hash Browns are a kid favorite! What can I say, they love food in cupcake form. My kids love them because they combine all of their favorite breakfast foods in one yummy package.
