These egg cup hash browns are genius. Combining two of the best breakfast foods into one little egg cup is perfection. Eggs and hash browns were made for each other.

These hash brown egg cups are also great for quick on-the-go breakfasts when you have a busy morning. Take out of the fridge or freezer, heat up in the microwave and enjoy!
Making Potato and Egg Cups
These hash brown egg cups can be made with homemade hash browns or frozen hash browns—whichever you prefer!
PREP. Grease a muffin pan and preheat the oven to 400 degrees to get the recipe started.
HASH BROWNS. Thaw the hash browns and press them into 12 greased muffin cups. Be sure to press potatoes into the sides and bottoms of the pan. Bake the hash browns for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
EGGS. While the potatoes are cooking melt the butter over the stove in a skillet. Add the eggs, milk, and salt to the pan. Cook everything together until mostly cooked and no liquid remains. Add the chopped bacon and 1 cup of the cheese and cook an additional minute or so.
COMBINE. Spoon the egg mixture into the potato cups, sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for 5 more minutes in the oven. Let the egg cups cool 5-10 minutes before removing from muffin cups.
using homemade hash browns
If you’re using homemade hash browns (regardless of if you’re making them fresh or pulling them out of the freezer), you’ll want to fry them up a little bit before putting them in the muffin. Go to our post for how to make hash browns for instructions on how to cook them!
