If you like an all-american breakfast of eggs, bacon, and hash browns, then you’re going to love these easy breakfast muffins with a hash brown crust! They’re great for an easy breakfast or to feed a large group brunch! And simple enough that you can make them on a Sunday and eat them all week long!
One of my favorite times of day to throw parties is brunch, those glorious in between breakfast hours from 10-2. Almost every brunch I host, I make my mini frittatas because they’re delicious warm or at room temperature and pretty much everyone loves them. This week when my mother-in-law was in town, I thought it would be fun to try something new for our before church brunch on Sunday and added a hash brown crust to turn the frittatas into muffins. And if you’ve tried this recipe before, I’ve updated it to add even more flavor!
These muffins are perfect not only for brunch but also for a quick and easy breakfast idea. They hold up well, so you could easily make them at the beginning of the week and just pop in the microwave for a few seconds to eat as you’re walking out the door. And making them couldn’t be much easier.
Easy Breakfast Muffins with a Hash Brown Crust
Start out by getting your ingredients together. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve gotten 3/4 of the way through a recipe only to realize I’m missing a key ingredient, one of the only ones you can’t find a substitute for. So yes, first get together all of your ingredients to make sure you have everything! Put the potato mixture into the muffin tin (I absolutely love this one!) and press it down with the bottom of a cup to form a hash brown “crust.”
Pop those babies in the oven for a few minutes to let them crisp up slightly. And while that’s happening, mix up your egg mixture. After the hash browns have cooked for a few minutes, top with the egg mixture and cook again. You can just cook it all together once, but the bottom won’t get as crispy. Cook until the egg is throughly cooked and puffs up like so.
And that’s it, the perfect individual sized brunch casserole to impress your guests at baby showers, bridal showers, or whatever occasion you may eat brunch at. Or breakfast. Or dinner if breakfast for dinner is your kind of thing. It’s not mine unless waffles with ice cream are involved and then I’m all in.
