Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffin

In this article, we have created a step-by-step recipe to help you bake your very own Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins. They are spicy, savory, and downright delicious. 

So, let’s get started.

What is Simply Potatoes®? 

As most people are aware, one of the culinary tasks that takes the longest to complete is preparing potatoes. Peeling, steaming, chopping, mashing, and other operations take up time and effort that may be spent elsewhere.

An American brand of fresh-tasting, chilled potatoes made entirely of actual tubers is called Simply Potatoes®. These ready-made potato baggies can be stored in the freezer or used right away in your cookery.

This enables the user to minimize all preparation without anyone ever needing to compromise the caliber of their food.

The cuisine that Simply Potatoes® provides has a genuine homemade taste, but it requires fewer hours and labor to serve it because it comes prepared, packed, chilled, and prepared for cooking for the user’s ease.

The potato products available from the Simply Potatoes® company include shredded hash browns, mashed potatoes, and diced roasted potatoes.

In addition to manufacturing and selling readily prepared potatoes, Simply Potatoes® also produces mac and cheese. Just like their potato products, their mac and cheese comes securely packaged and ready to immediately cook.

How To Make Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins

As we mentioned earlier, Simply Potatoes® produces and sells their very own bagged, readily prepared hash browns. 

They have their simple Shredded Hash Browns, for those who prefer simplicity, and they also produce: 

  • O’Brien’s Hash Browns – based upon Potatoes O’Brien, a fried potato-based dish combined with fried vegetables, such as onions and peppers.
  • Southwest Style Hash Browns – also based upon a potato-based dish of Southwest Potatoes, which consists of potatoes roasted in southwest spices, such as cayenne and cumin.

As you may have already guessed, we are going to need to use the Simply Potatoes® Southwest Style Hash Browns for this particular recipe.

This recipe will help you produce some of the tastiest hash brown egg muffins you will have ever tasted, with a slight spicy twist that completely changes the game.

If you’d like to add a little spice to your breakfast, look no further than our Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins.

Ingredients Needed To Make Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins

Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffin

Before you think about making your very own Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins at home, you are going to need to gather up all the ingredients required to follow this recipe.

Below, we have listed all of the ingredients that you are going to need for this recipe:

  • Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns (20 oz)
  • 10 eggs
  • Cheddar cheese (1 ½ cups)
  • Milk (⅓ cup)
  • Onion (¼ cup)
  • Red bell pepper (½ cup)
  • Green chili (a 7 oz can)
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Southwest spice blend
  • Cooking oil

You can make your own hash browns if you like, as long as you remember to fry them with a sprinkling of southwest spice blend.

However, by using the Simply Potatoes® hash browns, you will not only save yourself time and effort, but you will also be guaranteed a tasty result.

Additionally, you can make your very own southwest spice blend at home by combining the following spices:

  • Chili Powder
  • Oregano
  • Cumin
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Regular Paprika
  • Coriander
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper

If you make your very own seasoning blend, you can save the remainder of the product that you don’t use in a small container, and save it for future recipes.

Equipment Needed To Make Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins

In addition to having all the ingredients ready to start this recipe, you are also going to need to be sure that you have all the equipment required to begin.

Here are all the pieces of cooking equipment that you are going to need to create these Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins:

  • A large mixing bowl
  • A wooden spoon
  • A whisk
  • A kitchen knife
  • A chopping board
  • A tin opener
  • A muffin tin
  • A toothpick (optional)

If your can of green chilis can be opened without the use of a tin opener, then you won’t need to use this piece of equipment to complete your recipe.

The reason that we have added a toothpick as an optional piece of equipment is because some people find it easier to use one while testing if their muffins have completely cooked.

By poking the cooking muffins with a toothpick, you can easily check whether they are ready to remove from the oven or not.

Our Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins Recipe

Now that you have all the ingredients and equipment ready, you can begin to follow our Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins recipe. 

So, let’s jump straight into it!

  1. First and foremost, you are going to want to preheat your oven to 450 °F. While you are waiting for the oven to heat up, you can begin to prepare your other ingredients.
  2. Take your hash browns, and defrost them in the microwave so that they are no longer solid.
  3. Next, you will need to combine your hash browns and cheese in your mixing bowl. Add a little sprinkle of salt, pepper, and spice blend into the mix, and stir it all together to combine.
  4. Once you have made your cheesy hash brown mixture, grab the muffin tin and cooking oil. Add a tiny dab of oil to each hole, and spread it evenly so each one is completely greased up.
  5. Take small, even handfuls of the cheesy hash brown mix, and place them into each hole in the muffin tin. Using your fingers, pack the hash browns down and shape them so that they create a small cup shape.
  6. Place the muffin tin into the oven, and allow baking for around 20 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent burning around the edges of the cups.
  7. While the hash brown cups are baking, you can prepare the eggs. In the now empty mixing bowl, crack all the eggs inside along with the milk, and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and the spice mix. Whisk until all ingredients have blended together.
  8. Use the kitchen knife to dice up the onions, peppers, and chilis on the chopping board. Once all diced, add them into the bowl with the eggs, and use the wooden spoon to incorporate them into the mix.
  9. Once the hash brown cups have baked fully, remove the tray from the oven, and lower the temperature to 350 °F. 
  10. Carefully and evenly pour the scrambled egg mixture into each of the hash brown cups, and then place back into the oven for a further 25 to 30 minutes.
  11. After the time has passed, remove the muffin tin from the oven. Allow the muffins to cool before attempting to remove them from the tin.
  12. You can now serve and consume your Simply Potatoes® Hash Brown Southwestern Egg Muffins.
