Bacon, Eggs, Cheese & Potato Brunch Cups

This brunch recipe idea is perfect to serve to overnight guests.  The 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!
