Low Carb Hash Brown Muffins
When you first wake up, you want a food that is delicious, healthy, and a little bit interesting. After all, you can only eat so many muffins and omelets day after day! You are likely craving something new and exciting and that is how these breakfast hash egg cups came to be. They are different, they are tasty and they are the perfect breakfast in a convenient mold.
To begin, we make a hash brown style “crust” that will be the vessel for the eggs in the recipe. The crust contains no potatoes which are commonly thought of as a necessity in hash browns. However, a keto diet requires something different! So, instead of potatoes, we make the hash using almond flour, onion, parsley, parmesan, mayonnaise, and ham. That’s right, there is ham in the crust!
Rather than adding the ham in with the egg portion of the recipes, we decided to shred it in with the crust, adding a salty and savory component to the shell. The ham also blends so well with the herbs and other flavors of the crust. It also adds an element of protein to the dough which is quite helpful in making the curst sturdy enough to hold the egg filling without falling apart.
Once the ingredients for the curst are combined, the dough is divided between the cups of a muffin tin and pressed into the sides. As you press the dough down, make sure that it is about 1/8 of an inch thick on the sides of the cup and about ¼ of an inch thick on the bottom Sticking to this approximate measurement will ensure that your egg cups are strong and will hold their shape after being baked and taken out of the cup.
A simple whisked egg is then poured into the center of the prepared muffin cups and then the breakfast treats go right in the oven to bake! Now, if you want to add a little extra goodness to the hash brown muffins, you can sprinkle some cheese on top of the eggs after they are inside the muffin cups. Extra cheese is always good in the morning!
Once you try this recipe, you will fall in love with the remarkable taste of the hash brown cups. You truly do not need potatoes to make great hash browns! Make this recipe at the beginning of the week and you will have breakfast ready to pop in your mouth every morning. Easy, low carb, delicious and interesting- this recipe checks all the boxes!
