Even though the school year is coming to a close I’m still looking for shortcuts in the morning. That’s when I decided to make one of my kids favorite breakfasts, potatoes, eggs and cheese in a mini muffin tin. Usually this breakfast is saved for the weekend because even with store bought shredded potatoes it still takes at least 20 minutes to make which doesn’t cut it for hurried weekday mornings.
Now, with a tiny bit of planning ahead (making it the day before), I can freeze these little potato nuggets and pop them in the microwave or roster oven for a quick breakfast even on the go. Try them for yourself!
Breakfast Potato Bites To Go Recipe
1 package of pre-shredded potatoes
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 finely chopped onion (optional)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and thoroughly grease a mini muffin pan (you may need more than one, I used 1 plus 5 mini muffins). Pour potatoes into a bowl, add the salt, garlic powder and onion, stir to combine. Pour in the egg and give it another stir, then add the cheese and mix it all up. Spoon into mini muffin tins and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown and tops and edges begin to get crispy. Eat warm, or cool and freeze into individual packs and heat for about 20 seconds in the microwave. Yay, breakfast is made for the whole week!
