Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon butter
  2. 1 small onion, finely diced
  3. 3 cups sweet potato tater tots (defrosted)
  4. 1 cup regular potato tater tots (defrosted)
  5. 12 Dakota Layers eggs
  6. Cooking spray
  7. Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions and sauté for a few minutes. Add the tater tots, season with salt and pepper and sauté for roughly 10 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, break them up while they cook so they resemble hash browns. Set aside.
  3. Line a few paper towels in a large colander. Place hash brown mixture into the paper towel. Wrap up the potatoes with the paper towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. Then place in a large bowl.
  4. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Take a few tablespoons of the hash brown mixture and place in each cup, using fingers or a rubber spatula to push the potatoes into the bottoms and up the sides of the cup, creating a tight nest. Spray once more with cooking spray.
  5. Place hash browns into oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  6. Crack one egg into each cup. Season tops with salt and pepper. Place back in oven and cook for another 15 minutes, until whites of eggs have set (you can cook for longer if you prefer a firmer yolk).
Notes
  1. Squeezing the grated potatoes in a paper towel before baking them will remove excess water and make for a crispier hash brown shell.
