SIMPLE ORE IDA HASH BROWN CUPS

Simple Hash Brown Cups - make in just a few minutes and fill with anything you want (chili, broccoli and cheese, etc.).
I love potatoes, like order a baked potato with a side of french fries for dinner love potatoes. That means I typically eat my potatoes as soon as I buy them and don’t have any fresh ones when I’m craving them, which is pretty much all the time. Last week I was craving potatoes but didn’t have any on hand so I decided to make these hash brown cups from the Ore Ida Frozen Hash Browns that I picked up at Walmart last week.

The hash brown cups were so simple to make and were fantastic topped with chili and cheese for dinner one night and broccoli, cheese, and bacon for lunch the next day. They would also be a great idea for holiday entertaining because they look fancier than french fries or a baked potato and taste just as good.

Make Your Own
Step 1 – Gather your supplies. This should be easy because there aren’t too many of them. Once you have your supplies, thaw your hash browns. You can either do that overnight in the fridge or you can run the frozen hash browns under hot water quickly to thaw. I did the latter.

Step 2 – Mix your thawed hash browns, olive oil, egg, cheese, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl until well combined.

Step 3 – Spray each cup of a muffin tin generously with a baking spray then fill each cup about 3/4 full with the hash brown mixture.

Step 4 – Using your fingers, make a cavity in the middle of the hash browns by pressing the mixture up along the sides of the cup. Make sure that you leave some of the mixture on the bottom so it forms a nice cup shape.

Step 5 – Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until the edges are browned and crispy.
