Hash brown Egg Cups Recipe- Potato and Egg Cups


Hashbrown egg cups

Hash brown and egg cups or muffins, a killer breakfast…

I seldom make fancy breakfast or brunch, not because I am not fancy enough it’s just I am too lazy in the morning to cook. On some weekends, I make waffles or pancakes and that puts a huge smile on my Man’s face.

Last weekend, quite unexpectedly I made these hashbrown and egg cups for brunch. I actually geared up to make pan fried potatoes and sunny side up eggs, half way through I was hit by the thought of cracking the eggs into the hashbrown cups and then baking it.

Indeed, it was a great idea. My Man and I enjoyed this a lot.
