This brunch recipe idea is perfect to serve to overnight guests. The high protein bacon, eggs, cheese and potato brunch cups can be warmed easily if the guests wake up at different times. An egg fits perfectly in each cup in the muffin tin on a bed of hash browns. Sprinkling the potato and egg combination with bacon and cheese makes a great protein-packed breakfast or brunch recipe!
Brunch Ideas for Guests
A friend shared this recipe with us. We made it when we had guests over, which was perfect for people that woke up to eat at different times. Of course, this tastes great warm, but it also tastes great warmed up. We need versatile food like this for a casual brunch or breakfast.
It had never occurred to us that an egg (one of our favorite breakfast items) would fit perfectly into a muffin tin like this with our other favorite breakfast items.
High Protein Snack Idea
There are a couple of other things we like about this recipe, as farmers, we raise or know people that raise all of the ingredients! Secondly, my husband popped in one morning and heated up a couple of these for a portable snack to give him the power to finish up his chores with the animals before running errands to pick-up farm supplies. We all enjoyed these bacon, eggs, cheese and potato brunch cups!
We might try these brunch cups next time with scrambled eggs. Either way, they are delicious!
Here is another snack idea with bacon that our family enjoys, Bacon and Cheese Quesadillas. We hope you enjoy these recipes with bacon as much as we do!
