An Easy Potato Side Dish For Breakfast Or Dinner

Actually these would be great for breakfast next to a big pile of eggs. Not only are these Parmesan Hash Brown Cups tasty, but they’re easy to make and a lot better for you than french fries.

We love eating potatoes of any kind. Hash browns are a favorite for us too. This recipe is an easy way to make your hash browns up ahead of time and have them for a couple of meals.

This is definitely a staple recipe of ours now. Usually the recipes I look at or ideas get changed up a lot to make them my own but this one I followed just like it was. More scallions was all that I really changed!

This recipe can be switched up in about a hundred different ways too. Put in any kind of cheese you can think of or add any vegetable you might have in the fridge.

Ingredients To Make Parmesan Hash Brown Cups

A little help from the store is going to go a long way for these potatoes. You won’t believe how few ingredients you need to make these hash brown cups!

Store Bought Hash Browns: If you haven’t seen them before, you can grab frozen, shredded hash browns right at the grocery store – HUGE time saver!

Parmesan Cheese: We prefer grating our own or getting a good quality grated parmesan cheese from the store The kind in the can or jars that don’t have to be refrigerated…not so mush flavor.

Scallions: A few chopped scallions add a lot of flavor without being too “oniony”.

Seasonings: Salt, pepper and garlic powder add a ton of flavor!

    Looks great. You wrote mini muffin pan in the original recipe instead of regular size muffin pan. Just might want to orrect that in case someone cooks the minis that long it’ll burn. Can’t wait to try, thank you!

      Good question, Lauren – I have never frozen them before! I don’t see why not though. As long as they’re completely cooled before you freeze them it should work fine1 If you do try it let me know how it turns out.

    1. Dan

      Yes you definitely can! I would recommend heating them up in the oven or a toaster oven instead of a microwave.

    By 6 bunch scallions, do you mean one bunch of scallions containing 6 bulbs or do you actually mean 6 bunches?


        Just finished the test run for these and they did NOT disappoint! Serving them at a baby shower in 2 weeks and was looking for some “make ahead” items. I prepared them according to directions (I know that sounds silly but I’m always seeing posts that state “I followed directions except…) in mini pans. This recipe made about 30. Baked them at 350 for 27 mins. Removed from oven, cooled completely on rack, blotted the bottoms to remove some oil, and froze uncover on sheet pan. Bagged them after frozen and experimented with the reheat this AM. Preheated oven to 400 and cooked uncovered for 10 mins, flipped them and cooked and additional 2. Perfection! Thank you for this fabulous recipe! It will be a family favorite for all holiday brunches to come!

      Im not sure, the shredded hash browns are thinner so they’ll cook in less time. You can try and maybe increase the cooking time a little? Let me know how it turns out!
