  • 1 (20 oz bag) shredded hash browns
  • 10 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat hash browns in microwave for 30 seconds so they're more pliable. In a large bowl, combine the hash browns, ½ cup cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide the hash brown mixture evenly in the muffin cups. Use your fingers to pack them tightly and shape them into nests.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges have browned. Remove the hash browns from the oven and reduce temperature to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and milk and whisk until eggs are beaten. Stir in 1 cup cheese, bacon, pepper, onion, salt and black pepper.
  • Divide mixture evenly in the 12 hash brown nests. Sprinkle each with remaining ½ cup cheddar. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until centers are set and top is beginning to brown. (These can be eaten now or frozen and warmed up in microwave later)


  • Heat frozen hash brown in microwave for 30 seconds so they are pliable and can form a nest.
  • If you want easy crispy bacon, place on parchment paper on baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
  • Buy a block of cheddar cheese and shred it yourself. Pre-shredded cheese just doesn’t taste the same.
  • You can freeze the hash brown muffins for 6 months and reheat in microwave when ready to eat.
