Hash browns shaped into a cup and stuffed with sausage, egg and cheese is what I call Cheesy Sausage, Egg & Potato Muffins! Once they are baked you remove them from the muffin pan and you can pick them up to eat them or use a fork, they were delicious!

We love sausage so I bought extra sausage and served the extra pieces along with the Cheesy Sausage, Egg & Potato Muffins.

This recipe makes 12 muffins and we didn’t even eat half of them so I am going to freeze them individually for a future breakfast treat!
