Cheesy Sausage, Egg & Hash Brown Cups

Cheesy Sausage Egg and Hash Brown Cups

I like having some sort of protein at breakfast.  I feel like I stay full longer and I tend to stay on track with my eating the rest of the day when I do.

I’m also very busy in the mornings so if breakfast takes too long or seems like a lot of work (or any) I’ll tend to skip it.  For that reason I usually have a bunch of boiled eggs in my fridge to grab in the morning.  Sometimes you just can’t eat the same breakfast all. the. time!

This weekend I had inspiration hit!  It was the way that so many artists have talked about receiving inspiration, like a bolt of lightning, except I created egg cups instead of musical compositions.

These Cheesy Sausage, Egg & Hash Brown Cups are so good, and super crazy easy to make!  I think I’ll be keeping a batch of these in the fridge now along side my boiled eggs for breakfast!

    Those look really good! Could I use muffin cup liners to make them? And would fresh grated potatoes work? I never seem to have the frozen kind on hand.

  2. Cindy says

    I make these only I use “egg beaters” instead of eggs. I’m watching my cholesterol!! They also reheat easily in the microwave!!

    Help Plz! OK, so I’ve made a couple of batches of these and my kids and I are very pleased with them. But, I’m having an issue with the hashbrown crust. I’m using non-frozen commercially prepared product (for its convenience). As I smooth them, they do travel up but stick to the glass that I’m using even though I oil the glass. I read an earlier comment that suggested an increased cooking time. Will that help my situation?

      It could help David and I would also push a little less hard. Mine did stick a little but not bad and I could sort of go a little easy and it helped.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried these using different meat as in Bacon or Ham. My son us a bacon junkie Lol

      Silly goose it would be super super yummy! I would have used bacon instead of sausage had I had any! Plus I used pepper jack Chs. And green onions….. Turned out great! Used a spoon to mash up sides of muffin pans. Yes 2 dozen! Going to freeze and reheat this weekend when grankids are over! Perfect for late Saturday lazy day Yums! Have a good one…. Alaska Leah

    Instead of 12 whole eggs, I’m going to try using 6 whole eggs along with 6 egg whites…..cuts the cholesterol and calories in half, then if you use turkey sausage that would make them even better calorie-wise!!!!

  7. says

    I overfilled muffin cups using 12 eggs. These puffed up and made it harder to remove from pan. Also, I needed more oil on bottom and sides of pan because I ended up digging out hash browns stuck to the bottom of the muffin pan. In other words, MINE did not look as nice as the picture. However, the grandsons said they were tasty. So, I will make adjustments and try again because these sure would be handy to reheat for a fast, easy breakfast on school days! By the way, I used turkey sausage, and it was very tasty.

    I just made these and my family loved them!! I also had trouble using the glass to press down. The potatoes did stick so I ‘manned’ up and just used my hands…lol. I was already told these have to made again! Good deal!!

  9. says

    hello Ladies I just made these tonight for tomorrow morning’s breakfast! We actually had them for dinner tonight too…. Lol
    You know some nights how you just enjoy a breakfast supper…? Well we did! I used green onions finally chopped and pepper jack cheese…. Oh my gosh they are yummy. Going to try to post a pics. Remember mine are light in color from using light colored cheese. Mmmmmmmhmmmmmmmm delicious…….. Belly is full , body needs rest! Tuk Tuk!!!!! Leah Bradford
