I used the type of hash browns I had on hand---Ore-Ida's that are cubed rather than grated. That made it hard to form the cups, and then they were very hard to get whole from the muffin pan even though I greased it heavily. I used a mixture of three Johnsonville products---All Natural Mild Ground, All Natural Hot Ground, and Three-Cheese Italian Sausage (all of which are MSG-free, I must add). These were good---not great---but good. Be sure not to overbake these because they get rubbery otherwise. I'll try these again when I have the correct hash browns. I loved the sausage mix! Thanks, Johnsonville! EDIT 4/6/14 I made more of these today. I cut down the recipe to 4 servings (just hubby and me), and I got 5 perfect muffins! I used Mild Italian Ground Sausage (no MSG) and cut the cheese down a little but otherwise followed the recipe. I'm changing my review to 5 stars because I think using shredded hash browns (Ore-Ida) makes all the difference in the world. I greased my muffin tins and they just came out beautifully! I hope the little girls in my life will like these, but I can always tailor these to fit their desires--that's the beauty of recipes like this! Yummy! Thanks, Johnsonville!
