hash brown egg cups

Many of us know Ree Drummond from her hit television show “The Pioneer Woman.” The Food Network host has some terrific recipes that she often uses on her working ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.

One recipe that might become a favorite breakfast meal in your home is Baked Eggs in Hash Brown Cups. The treats are both cute and tasty. They also don’t require too much effort to make. While the ingredients are staples you probably already have in your home, make sure you have enough or cut down the recipe because this will serve quite a few hungry people!

Here’s what you need to make these for your next breakfast:

6 to 8 medium russet potatoes

salt and ground pepper

nonstick cooking spray

24 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Bake the potatoes until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow to cool, and then peel and grate them. Season well with salt and pepper.

Spray two 12-hole muffin pans generously with cooking spray. Scoop 3 to 4 tablespoons of grated potato into each muffin hole. Use your fingers to gently press down the sides and bottom in each muffin hole to make a nest. Spray again with cooking spray. Then bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch and make sure they do not burn.

Allow the nests to cool. Then crack an egg into each one. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake until the whites are set about 15 minutes.

You can watch the Pioneer Woman make Baked Eggs in Hash Brown Cups in the video below.

Those look amazing! If you like firmer eggs, bake them longer. You can also dress these up and make them your own by adding different kinds of eggs, and perhaps some spinach and additional seasonings. They probably are delicious with hot sauce as well!
