Now he either requests these muffins or makes them for himself!You can use any vegetable you have on hand or desire! I usually include onions and/or peppers, it all depends on what I have in my fridge. At times, I have only included vegetables and some cheese of course! I don’t think I have ever made these without cheese now that I think about it!Same goes for meat, if you choose to include it. You can use diced and cooked ham, sausage or bacon! Any combination works! Use your favorites or whatever you have around!

Potato Breakfast Muffins
Hash Brown Crust
- 2 cups hash browns, frozen
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon olive or another vegetable oil
- 1 cup cheese, shredded
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup cheese, shredded, divided more or less to taste
- 1/4 cup bacon, ham or sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 6 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons peppers, any color, diced
- 1/2 cup 2% milk or cream
- cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large sized bowl beat 1 egg. Next add hash browns, olive oil, 1 cup shredded cheese and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and of pepper. Stir until blended.
Divide mixture as equally as possible into each muffin cup. Try to fill each cup as evenly as possible. Press potato mixture down as much as you can.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until potatoes start to crisp up. Remove hash browns from your oven and set aside on your stove top. Leave your oven on.
While the hash browns are baking, combine eggs and milk or cream in a large bowl.
Add a pinch of cheese to each muffin cup, on top of your baked hash browns.
Next add a pinch of cooked bacon, ham or sausage, peppers and onions, on top of the cheese.
Pour your egg mixture evenly into each muffin cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
Bake for between 10 and 15 more minutes or until eggs are cooked and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in the tin for about 5 more minutes before serving. Enjoy!
