Ingredients for Breakfast Cupcakes with bacon and eggs.

Gather up the good stuff. Hash brown potatoes, eggs, Cheddar cheese…and of course crispy, smoky bacon.


Add hashbrowns to greased muffin tins.

Mix the taters with some oil, salt and pepper. Press it all into muffin cups lined with greased foil liners. Bake the hash browns ’til they live up to their name (ya know…'til they're brown). That’ll take 45 to 55 minutes.


Mix up the eggs, cheese and bacon.

Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in shredded Cheddar and some crumbled bacon.


Press potatoes down to make room for the egg mixture.

Firmly press the baked hash browns with a ¼-cup measuring cup or a large spoon. This makes more room for the egg, bacon and cheese layer.


Add egg mixture on top of potatoes.

Add the egg mixture over the potato layer. Startin’ to get how this is gonna happen?


Breakfast cupcakes out of the oven.

Bake until the egg layer is set and a knife inserted into it comes out clean.
