Whenever I make these Potatoes Breakfast Muffins, I prefer to use my own freshly grated potatoes mixed with some grated sweet potatoes. The grated sweet potatoes are optional, but it does add that hint of sweetness to the recipe. Be sure to squeeze out the excess water in the grated potatoes before adding all your ingredients together.

How to make this Scrambled Eggs and Potatoes Breakfast Muffins

  • To make this muffin hash, all you need is grated Potatoes. Rinse in cool water to remove some of the starch. Drain the water and use a paper towel to dry out the excess water from the grated potatoes.
  • I also used Turkey breakfast sausage in this recipe; however, Chicken breakfast sausage, ham, or bacon can also be used. You can even use ground Turkey or Ground Chicken, but you will need to season to your preference. Sausage links will work just as well. Just remove the casing and use it as needed.
  • Before baking, spray the muffin pan with a good non-stick spray or grease with solid room-temperature coconut oil, or soft butter. These are the best grease that will stay on your pan. Liquid oils will get easily washed down the base of the baking pan.
  • Fill the muffin pan almost to the brim and bake at 400°F for 20 to 25  minutes. The muffins will rise well without running over.

This recipe is very versatile, and one great thing I love about this recipe is that you can use whatever you have in your fridge. You can also make it meatless by adding mushrooms, spinach, peppers, asparagus, or any other meat replacements. This gives you an endless possibility for mix-ins.

Yes, this scrambled Eggs and Potatoes Breakfast Muffins freeze so well. If you have any leftovers, simply put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them.

Can these Scrambled Eggs and Potatoes Breakfast Muffins be baked ahead, frozen and then reheated later?

Yes, they freeze so well. If you have any leftovers, simply put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them. They also heat up very well; just pop them in the microwave for about a minute. It’s a perfect recipe to make ahead of time!

Notes:

  • Store-bought frozen hash can also be used in place of freshly grated potatoes.
  • Be sure to grease/Oil the muffin pans; otherwise, the hash will stick.
  • Do not overfill the muffin pans because the eggs do rise up
  • Butter or Coconut Oil can be used to replace Olive oil.
  • If you choose to use ground chicken/Turkey, be sure to season it well before adding it together with the other ingredients.

I am going to make these for Easter but I would make a couple suggestions. There is NO reference to potatoes in the list of ingredients. (In title and directions but not in list} and you refer in the directions to cooking the "sausage" which I assume is the ground turkey? Thanks so much for sharing-

Where are the grated potatoes in the recipe? Are they cooked or uncooked when adding in the recipe?

Hi Karen, they are uncooked. Apologies for the late response. I somehow missed the comment.
