Egg and Hash Cups

Eating an egg like a cupcake is always more fun...

Do you ever get in a quirky mood? 

The boys and I thought we would try something new for lunch.  We are stuck in a rut and needed to break the cycle of tuna sandwiches and ramen noodles.  Egg and Hash Cups fit the bill-  not for exotic ingredients, but for the presentation! 

We found this fun recipe in a cookbook that we use for camping.  I use it for several recipes on family camp outs from Full Circle Dutch Oven Cookbook by the Patrick Sisters.  I love using our dutch ovens, but a lot of the recipes are easily adapted to a conventional oven. 

Here is what you need to make this fun recipe:

  • eggs
  • 1 can roast beef hash (I am considering trying these with frozen hash browns next time)
  • foil cupcake wrappers
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • muffin tin or cookie sheet

To make these handheld brunch delights, you will need to do the following:

  • Place foil liners in the muffin tin or on a cookie sheet.  One can will make about 6.  Gently spray the inside of each liner.
  • Fill each cupcake liner almost halfway with the hash.
  • Crack an egg and cover the hash.

  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook in a 350 degree oven until the eggs are firm and cooked through.
  • Serve!
