How to Make Hash Brown
- One large head of cauliflower – make sure you have removed the leaves and the stalks. Grate or cut the cauliflower.
- One additional egg (get a gigantic one if you can or two medium-sized for the 6th process) – whisked.
- ½ cup of mozzarella or cheddar cheese. Include parmesan cheese too (¼ grated cup.)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp onion powder. Alternatively, you could use ½ tsp powdered garlic
- Include pepper though this is optional
- 12 small eggs (assuming you’ll be using a 12-hole muffin tin).
Once you’ve gotten the hang of making hash brown breakfast cups, you can vary the serving to your liking. For now, this serving will be sufficient for 3 people.
- Thoroughly clean your hands with soap since you’ll be getting pretty handy with your hash browns.
- Let the oven preheat to around 446F/230°C. Meanwhile, grease your muffin tin with butter or spray/apply cooking oil lightly. Don’t overdo it to avoid wastage and wipe the excessive oil extension with a paper towel.
- Now get the cauliflower and pulse in a bowl till a cauliflower rice-like mixture forms. Applying too much pressure for a long time will result in a raw puree forming which isn’t what we intend to achieve for our cauliflower hash brown egg cups. This process should be done in about a minute.
- The cauliflower formed should be around 500 grams or 17.6 oz. Take this measure (of about 3 cups) and lightly steam in a vegetable steamer or over boiling water till it softens. As an alternative, place in a safe bowl then in the microwave for around 9 minutes. Once softened, remove and let it cool for a decent 7 minutes before proceeding to the next phase.
- Make use of cheesecloth, old tea towels or paper towels to strain the cauliflower rice off as much water as you can. Wrap it and dry it out on top of a sink to avoid messing up the place.
- Taking the mixture back into the dried bowl, add the garlic/onion powder, cheeses, salt, and whisked egg. Equally subdivide this mixture into your muffin tray while pressing firmly with your fingers to form ‘nests’ or ‘cups’.
- Transfer into the oven and bake for 20 minutes till all the cheese/mozzarella has melted. Your kitchen should now have a deep baked cheesy smell that should start calling unwanted visitors to your kitchen. Remove from the oven and enjoy the golden brown sight as you pour the 12 small eggs in each cup. Season with a little more pepper and salt (to your liking) and return to oven for 15 minutes more. The yolk should be cooked to your liking and the whites should be spread on the cauliflower hash brown egg cups.
- After around 7-10 minutes of cooling down, remove carefully from tray to prevent them from breaking up. Strategically use a knife or a fork for this.
- Use parsley or red chili flakes to garnish (up to you) or simply enjoy the hash brown egg cups tasty as they are.
