Hash Brown “Cupcakes”

I have seen a lot of different methods/recipes for these on Pinterest and made my version of them this morning for “the boys” for breakfast!  They both ate 3 a piece, with some Canadian back bacon, so I would have to say they were a hit!


Here is what I started out with.


In a large bowl I mixed together the hash browns, melted margarine, salt, pepper and garlic powder.


Once this was well mixed I pressed it into my muffin tin cups using a spoon and then just my fingers with a little bit of cooking spray on them.  I baked this for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

While that was cooking I mixed up 7 eggs with about a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, chopped up my green onions and added that to another bowl with chopped ham and some crumbled cooked bacon. Then I grated some old cheese.

When the 25 minutes were up, I removed the muffin tin from the oven, sprinkled the onion mixture into the bottom of the hash brown cups, put a little bit of the grated cheese on that, poured the egg mixture evenly into each cup and then sprinkled it with a bit more of the cheese.

I baked this for another 25 minutes, still at 400 and this is what came out of the oven!
