A few months ago I made the Hoidy-Toidy Ham and Egg Cups. Great for a brunch. Here is another recipe to use for a brunch. I pinned a version of this recipe from They are also made in a muffin pan like the ham and egg cups.

Here are the ingredients: frozen pre-shredded hash brown style potatoes, eggs, flour, pre-cooked diced bacon, diced onions, chopped green peppers, pre-cooked sausage crumbles, shredded cheese, salt and pepper. If there are other things you like in your eggs feel free to use them! Whatever you like or have in the pantry is fine.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

For the nest part: Mix pre-shredded hash brown potatoes, eggs, and flour together in a bowl.
