So how did you get the hash muffin out without leaving some hash behind? I like the eggs runny... how long would you leave in oven for runny eggs?

Haha. My family has been doing a version of this for years, only we line the muffin tin with a layer of puff pastry first, then the corn beef hash, then the egg. You need deep muffin trays for it, but they come out as one cute and scrumptious little meal. You can also do it as phyllo lined with bacon(OH YEAH), you bake them, once the bacon is cooked, you toss the egg in, back again, and voila, bacon egg cups to die for :) A good sprinkle of cheese makes everything better in my eyes too, a sharp aged cheddar tends to work best I found.

I used a jumbo muffin tin and filled the cups 1/2 full. This is a really fun idea. Btw... I also had to halve the recipe because my tin only has 6 cups, but it still worked fine.

Aside from the oven fire, it was pretty good. I think I filled the muffin pan with to much corned beef and the grease poured out of the pan and flashed when it hit the hot stove about 10 min into the bake cycle. I cleaned it up, added a drip pan and kept it going. Just as the fire alarms were going off my first guest arrived!

It tasted really delicous and it was the best breakfast yet, very filling. The corn muffin was a nice touch to the meal.

I just made the hash and eggs portion of this recipe. I didn't have any cornbread mix so I served the hash cups with toast. I liked it. My husband said bravo. He loves corned beef hash.
