When your short on time these Cheesy Hash Brown Egg Cups are the perfect go-to breakfast. Crispy and cheesy hash browns on the bottom, topped with a perfectly cooked egg, baked in the oven, you'll not only save time, but also clean-up.
If your anything like my family, it's hard to get us out the door on time. When you try and add breakfast into the mix, it just creates extra hassle.
The opportunity for a nutritious breakfast can be quickly missed. Most mornings we just eat a bowl of sugary cereal, or we pop a toaster pastry into the toaster.
However, that leaves us hungry within an hour, and it's not all that great for you. I've been trying to come up with more nutritious breakfasts that can be made in advance or rather quickly on rushed mornings.
That's where my Cheesy Hash Brown Egg Cups come in! Eggs are a great source of protein, and a go to for a lot of people. But did you know not all eggs are not created equal and this is why I like Handsome Brook Farm Eggs.
They are organic eggs that come from organic-fed, pasture raised hens. Both of which are important aspects to our family. An all-natural diet and freedom forage outdoors gives Handsome Brook Farm eggs their trademark golden-orange yolk and rich, delicious flavor.
If you've noticed though there are so many different choices when it comes to labels on a carton of eggs. There is farm raised, pasture raised, free range, etc. So how do you know what to choose?
You definitely want to choose certified pasture raised. Studies show that Handsome Brook Farm Eggs can contain 2 times more Omega 3’s, 38% more vitamin A and 23% vitamin E than conventional eggs. Wondering where I got my eggs?
I bought my Handsome Brook Farm Eggs from my local Publix, but they are available at select retailers nationwide. Just look for the carton with the cute chicken! Enough egg facts, let's talk about how simple this recipe is to put together.
These Cheesy Hash Brown Egg Cups are made with 4 ingredients, not including your salt and pepper! It takes 5 minutes to throw the ingredients together in a bowl, and less than 30 minutes to bake!
Cheesy Hash Brown Egg Cups ingredients:
- shredded hashbrown potatoes, thawed
- shredded cheddar cheese
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
How long do you cook egg topped hash brown cups?
30 minutes! That's all it takes.
Can I make egg topped hash brown cups ahead of time?
Yes, you can prepare the hash brown cups the night before. Store in the fridge until ready to bake, and then top with the egg, and bake.
A totally healthy and completely beneficial breakfast.

These hashbrown cups are so pretty and would be a welcome addition to Saturday breakfast or brunch. I like the fact that they don't have a lot of ingredients and it's something the entire family would love. Weekend guests would love these too! I'm looking forward to making them soon.

I love hash brown cups! Hash browns, potatoes and cheese - you can't go wrong. These look terrific, i could go for one right now.
These would be the perfect breakfast. I love eggs and hashbrowns! I need to try them out soon. My kids would love them too!
These sound really good. I am going to make these for the kids this weekend. They will love them.
My husband would love these! He loves all things eggs and hashbrowns! Definitely have to whip this up for him sometime this week!
These are gorgeous and oh so simple. I could totally make these and freeze them for a quick grab and go breakfast. Thanks for the recipe.
Ohh I like the idea of freezing them I may just have to do that as well - perfect for when you don't have too long in the morning!
We make these cups all the time. Great individual idea. Grab and go breakfast if in a hurry. They freeze well so make extra.
That looks absolutely fabulous! My mouth is watering looking at them. They look easy enough to make that I think I can make them pretty quickly in because I have all the ingredients I think I might do that today.
These look very tasty! Would you be able to do the eggs scrambled instead? My husband doesn't like runny yolks so I always have to do our eggs two ways.
Totally! Just whisk the egg up before pouring it into the hashbrown cup! 🙂
That is agreat breakfast and if I could make it the day before that is a great time saving and a healthy fulfilling breakfast. I never thought that the eggs I make could be better so I will look for Those where I shop but I have never seen them before.
These look so good! I bet my daughter would love them! They seem fairly easy to make
I'll have to try a version of your recipe, these look fantastic. I recently had a friend make something similar but added avocado!
Oh how I wish I could eat eggs again. I developed a sensitivity to egg whites that really hurts me and can't have eggs anymore. These look so good and I know my family would love to have them.
This looks so delicious. I love the idea of doing hashbrown cups. I am going to have to try these for breakfast asap!

This is my favorite to go food for breakfast. Healthy and delicious I used to make it almost every weekend. Easy to prepare and microwave it when I'm at work. I like how the harsh brown is perfectly cooked.

These look absolutely delicious! I don't eat eggs enough! I feel there is so much you can do with them! I'll try this recipe for sure!
I love hashbrowns for breakfast are always a plus. I'd love to try these myself.
This looks so tasty! And also kinda healthy, right? I mean the ingredients aren't bad, right? I think I'll have to try this the day I get myself a muffin baking tray.

YUM!! This is an amazing breakfast recipe that I am definitely going to use at home. Anything with just 4 ingredients and a 30 minute baking time has my name ALL OVER IT. Thank you for the kitchen inspiration!!
Oh now these sound like an interesting idea for a breakfast dish - I can imagine the hashbrowns with egg are wonderfully delicious!

I hear you, sometimes I need to rush out the door and do not even have the chance to have breakfast. I really like the sound of these hashbrown cups topped with egg, especially since you can make them in advance or quickly in the mornings x
I would so eat these for breakfast every single day. I would love to make this for my kids and hubby! It would surely be a hit in my kitchen.
Okay, now this is something I just have to make. I imagine they're also very easy to take on the road (which is sometimes a necessity in our household).
This is a great breakfast option especially when we are rushing out of the door for work and school. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Adding bacon makes it even better.
OH I am saving this for this weekend's brunch. They are delicious looking! I haven't seen these eggs yet!

This looks really really good. And easy enough for someone like me to try.
I like that this is baked and not fried! It's so much better to start your morning with a good breakfast especially when you have a long day ahead. This one's a must try!
These sound really tasty. My husband would love it if I made him some of these for breakfast one day.
These look delicious. What a great breakfast. I don't have hashbrowns on hand but will but it down on my grocery list. Nothing beats a small portable meal too!
I love these i make them all the time. Egg cups are such a time saver in the morning when you make a batch ahead. Great post and nice pictures!!
I like making things like this since you can use what you have or what needs to be used up. Spinach is always a favorite with egg whites for me. With Mozzarella cheese.
These look really good. I have been looking for different breakfast things that I can make ahead of time so we aren't relying on cereal everyday.
These will be perfect for a weekend breakfast! Just sitting around in our jammies, eating these would be so awesome!
Such a simple and delicious breakfast. Hard to go wrong with potato, egg and cheese. These would freeze well so make extra for grab and go
Ummm these look DELICIOUS and EASY, perfect for me! 🙂
My kind of breakfast, just 4 ingredients? Love it. I always try to provide a balanced breakfast for my family and this is a great idea.
You have made the recipe look so good and easy. I simply love hashbrown cups. Your presentation style is outstanding. Will try these soon. Cheers!!

Hashbrowns are really something we love. Being vegetarians it is hash browns that we make a beeline for whenever we overseas.
I want to try these using spaghetti squash for the hashbrowns. What do you think? Love this and I can't wait to take them to a brunch I am attending in a week!
Hmmm, I'll be totally honest with you, I've never cooked with spaghetti squash but just once, and it was years ago. So I couldn't give you an opinion on this. The only advice I could give you is to try it! 🙂 If you do decide to try it, come back and let us know how they turned out for you.
I don’t know who would like these more??? My hubby who will and does eat everything, or my bottomless pit kids?!? Fantastic recipe and thanks for sharing
OMG these look too yummy for words!! Cant wait to try out the recipe for myself! Thanks for sharing, and seriously loving your photos too!
I love this egg topped hashbrowns! This is so perfect for breakfast!
These look so good! I think it would be great to make them and freeze some to re-heat and eat during the week! My husband would probably love these to grab and take to work with him as well!
This looks so good, really looks delicious!! Food photography at its best! 🙂
Those looks so good that it is making me hungry. My husband would love these for weekend breakfast!
This breakfast looks super yummy. I love that you can just grab it and go. Thanks for the recipe.
This seems like such the perfect combination of a ton of breakfast foods that I love! I'm definitely going to have to try these out for myself!
wow, these are perfect breakfast treats. You can make these in advance very easily!
These look absolutely delicious/ The flavor combination is great. I will have to try them
My older boys are just learning to cook and are obsessed with making themselves scrambled eggs. I'll be on the lookout for these. Also maybe I'll let them branch out to these hashbrown cups too.
This sounds so yummy. I've never tried hashbrowns with egg before.
Wow this is one of my favorite breakfast and pairing with brewed coffee. Omg now am craiving for it. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Looks like a perfect brunch appetizer. I would love to make this for a group of friends whenever I host my next brunch!

I like these breakfast cups because you can just be creative with the ingredients you put in. Even shredded left over rotisserie chicken can be added for more protein. However, since my husband loves potatoes, I will try your version. It looks delicious I wanted to reach out for one!
All of my favorite breakfast foods packed into one! These are perfect for on the go.
Ooh I would love to try these bad boys out! I'm always looking for quick and easy breakfast items!
I'm not a huge fan of hashbrowns, but I feel like I'd like them like this! YUM! I need easy breakfasts when I go back to work...
what a yummy idea for breakfast! I have the hardest time finding things that my family will eat but I'm pretty sure they would eat this!
These looks so yummy! I think I may need to give these a try to switch things up for our mornings. Sometimes breakfast can get a bit boring but these will definitely add a bit of fun and yummy to the mix.
This looks like a wonderful breakfast recipe to add to our week. What a great way to add some variety to our meal plan!
These look pretty tasty! I might have to try them out but somehow scramble my egg.
I've been looking for breakfast recipes! I get so tired of the same boring breakfast. These look so tasty and easy to make. Definitely buying the ingredients today 🙂 thanks!

Lovely article. I like those images!!!
can the hash brown mix be made the night before and put in frig, then baked the next morning?
Yes! 🙂 Just cover with plastic wrap or foil to keep it from drying out.
