Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. Ham, Eggs, Cream cheese & cheddar Simply Potato baskets

Top Review by tracytrebilcox

First off, to keep the recipe to five ingredients as per the contest, I deleted the ham (the eggs weren't listed on the ingredients list). I also couldn't find my muffin pan, so I just made cups with some aluminum foil that I had used an old jelly jar as the mold. However, this was really delicious! It's a bit more work than I would like for a breakfast, but one of my daughters didn't get to try it because she had gotten home from a date too late and slept in, so her twin ate her "basket". If I make this again, I'll probably add some chopped onions to the hashbrowns just to give it a bit more flavor.
