These yummy breakfast Egg Baskets have two ingredients! I love incorporating store bought ingredients that make a recipe so easy! In this case, store bought fresh hash browns do the trick!
Cute little devils…arn’t they? Two ingredients – yup two! Pre-packaged fresh hash browns (like Simply Fresh) and eggs. Thats it!
Bake the hash browns in a muffin tin, break an egg into the partially cooked potato cups. Put back in oven for the egg to cook and ta da! One package of fresh hash browns should yield about 6 muffins. You can add a piece of ham into the hash brown cup before cracking the egg into it if you would like.
Tips to make these Egg Baskets
- Really spray those muffin tins with non-stick. These guys want to stay in the pan.
- Careful not over-bake your eggs. 8-10 minutes should do it. Give them a little jiggle. You want the egg whites fully cooked and the center runny. Unless you prefer a more cooked egg, then give it another 3-4 minutes to completely set.
- Easy recipe and at only 145 calories a piece, you could have two!
