Hashbrown Scramble Egg & Sausage Cups 

20 oz frozen shredded potatoes/hashbrowns – patted dry 

1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch  

¾ teaspoons salt 

¼ fresh ground pepper 

1 cup mild cheddar cheese- shredded & divided 

1 cup jumping jack cheese- shredded & divided 

8 eggs 

¼ cup milk- 2% or whole 

¼ teaspoon garlic powder 

1 Tablespoon butter 

3/4lb bulk sausage 

¼ cup sweet onion, chopped 

1/4 cup spinach, chopped 

1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped fine 

Place frozen hashbrowns on paper towel & pat potatoes as dry as possible. Sprinkle with corn starch. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl and add salt, pepper and ½ cup of each cheese (total of 1 cup). 

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and press potato mixture into all 12 cups, making a nest in the middle. Bake in a preheated 425° oven. Bake for 25 minutes. 

Meanwhile whip 8 eggs, milk and garlic powder. Set aside. Brown sausage and when almost done, add chopped onions. Drain.  

Melt butter in medium skillet, pour egg mixture into skillet. When eggs get thicker, add ¾ cup cheese (reserving ¼ cup for the tops). Then add spinach & parsley. When eggs are still very wet, add sausage & onion. Sprinkle each cup with remaining ¼ cup cheese. When eggs are still very soft & underdone, spoon into muffin cups and put back into the oven for 5-6 minutes.
