Hash Brown Muffins

Serves 4 | Total Time 30 min


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups grated potato
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan or cheddar cheese


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1/3 cup grated Colby cheese
  • 1/3 cup fresh baby spinach, thinly sliced
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and grease 8 muffin cups.
  2. In a bowl, beat egg, salt and pepper until blended.
  3. Place grated potato in a clean tea towel and squeeze out excess liquid. Mix potatoes and parmesan cheese into the egg mixture.
  4. To form cups, press about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of each prepared muffin cup. Bake until light golden brown, (approx. 15 minutes).
  5. For filling, beat eggs, smoked paprika (if using) and chives in a bowl until blended; stir in Colby cheese and spinach. Spoon into potato cups and top with chopped bacon.
  6. Bake until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean, roughly 6-8 minutes.
  7. Wait for the muffins to cool slightly before removing from the tin. Serve with a little tomato relish and salad on the side for lunch or on their own for morning tea or breakfast on the go!
