I reduced the amount of sausage for our family preference, but these have a nice, solid taste to them + were quick + easy to make. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BASE RECIPE. I've already made several batches + here are my suggestions. Skip the butter and just press the hash browns into a sprayed pan. I do this by spraying the muffin tin and then dropping a small handful of hash browns in to each opening. Then take a 1/4 cup measure, spray the back side (bottom) of it, and squash it into the muffin tin holding the hash browns. This presses it down + up the sides brilliantly. You may have to wipe off the 1/4 cup measure and respray it several times. Then I sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Bake the 12 minutes as suggested. Then, add in whatever finely diced toppings you like. Finally, pour in the egg over each cup and bake per the recipe. A couple of thoughts on the cheese. We try not to each much of it, so I have made these without cheese and they still taste great. I've also tried topping them with cheese at the last few minutes of baking, which didn't turn out so well. The muffins have a rounded top and the cheese fell off and crisped up along the sides of the tin. This could be because I overfill mine with toppings... but this is what I've experienced. I love the flexibility of this recipe. I love that I can jam some of these full of mushrooms, spinach, peppers and asparagus. Right along side of the cheese and egg only for my picky eater. Love love love it!
