Egg and Sausage Cups

Egg Cups 006

Tis’ the season for sharing right?

Well I have the cutest neighbors.

They are both in their 90’s

That’s a lot of life experience.


Anyways, they have their church friends over every other Thursday to play cards.

Everyone brings their own food, like half sandwiches in zip lock baggies and single servings of marshmallow salad. It’s quite funny.

I decided I wanted to make them a little treat, I have brought over baked goods before, but they always say, “They can’t eat sweets, because their sugars.” Diabetes I am suspecting.

I still wanted to share with my adorable little neighbors, so I made them Egg and Sausage Cups.

They were so delighted,surprised  and ohhhhhhhh so very thankful.

Even though I just had to walk to my neighbors, these tasty little Egg, sausage and hash brown cups are easy to make and easy to transport.

I used Ore-Ida Hasbrowns and Johnsonville sausage to spruce up the egg cups.

These would be great for brunch.

Pat the hashbrowns into the prepared pan and bake.
