Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (61 votes)

Wow your brunch guests with this adorable muffin-tin recipe of baked eggs in a “nest” of prosciutto and hash browns. Make sure you really wring out as much liquid as you can from the potatoes before you bake them—it will prevent the cups from sticking in the muffin tin.

7 Reviews for Baked Eggs in Prosciutto-Hash Brown Cups

Easy to prepare

I made this for breakfast today. The only problem I had was when I poured the first egg (large) into the "cup", there was so much egg white that it spilled over & all over the place. So with the remaining eggs, I poured out a little of the white before placing in each cup. I used Ore-Ida frozen hash browns, put them in a colander last night & this morning they were dry so I didn't have to wring them in a dish towel. I didn't have hot paprika so I put a little cayenne in with regular paprika. Will definitely make again!


Loved this recipe. Easy and delicious. I would make this for a brunch with my friends or at home with my family. My only suggestion is that you make sure the hash browns are crisp. I will definitely make this again.

Easy and Delicious
Tasty but horrible clean-up

This was a very tasty dish. The seasonings in the hashbrowns and the prosciutto really made the dish. However, even with dry potatoes and liberal oiling of the pan, the cups did not come out cleanly and the pan was very difficult to clean. If I try this again I will use a glass 9x13, layer the seasoned hashbrowns, bake, layer the prosciutto, crisp, use a large spoon to make indentations ('cups'), top with eggs, bake, cut into squares and serve.


Loved it!! Tasty and did not change a thing. Must make sure you cook the hashbrowns till brown or they will stick when cooking with eggs.

Came out of the oven looking beautiful
I just have a question before making this for tomorrow

I am really curious if anyone has used bacon instead of prosciutto?? I am having a brunch tomorrow and would love to try this with bacon and wondered if anyone had any tips

This sounds delicious. As for sticking I have teflon jumbo muffin pans. And I'll spray the pans with cooking spray as well. It sounds like from the reviews that the hash browns were not cooked long enough. Will be trying this tomorrow morning for breakfast.
