This dish has cheese, bacon and potatoes. Your basic food groups covered.

Cheddar and Bacon Hash Brown Cups

  • 3 cups shredded potatoes
  • 1/2 small to medium onion, grated
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 6-8 slices bacon
  • salt/pepper to taste

Spray a standard muffin tin (six muffins) with nonstick spray. Use kitchen shears to trim bacon slices, covering the bottom and lining the sides. Try not to leave any gaps. Place shredded potatoes in a clean dish towel. Roll up the potatoes and squeeze out as much water as possible. In a large bowl, mix potatoes, cheese, onion and salt and pepper. Divide mix evenly in the muffin tin slots. Bake at 375 until bacon is crisp and potatoes are cooked through, about 35 minutes.

    How crisp do the bacon strips get when done and would it be a good idea to par-bake the strips first if I want them to be really crisp?

    These look so cool – what a great recipe. I, too, would like to know if we could briefly bake the bacon before putting everything together.

      I would want to get as much of the fat out of the bacon as possible (and make them crispy) before lining the muffin cups cause the idea of ending up with a muffin cup full of bacon fat isn’t a great one. 🙂

    These would be perfect for a Sunday brunch — if any of them make it out of the kitchen. 🙂

  5. Great idea for breakfast cups!

  7. Saw something similar with pancetta and a different filling…looks yummy!

    • Cecile says:

      I bet these could be made with ham… The ham would have to be sliced thin though… “Food for Thought” ! I can’t wait to make these!!

  8. Caroline says:

    Omg yum. Gimme that! Sounds so good.

    Not that I have ANY problem what so ever with this recipe Greg, but I must correct you about the four basic food groups! They are definitely: Wine, Cheese, Chocolate and Bread, in no uncertain terms!
