Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

4 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed

1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided

1 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. salt, divided

1/4 tsp. black pepper, divided

1/3 cup chopped bell pepper

1/3 cup chopped onion

1 1/2 cups (about 12 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine thawed hash browns, 1/2 cup cheese, oil, 1/8 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. black pepper. Stir to mix.

Distribute mixture among the cups of the muffin pan, using your hands or a flat utensil to firmly press and form the crusts. Press mixture into the edges and up along the sides. Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onion. Cook and stir until softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine egg whites/substitute, cooked veggies, remaining 1/2 cup cheese, remaining 1/8 tsp. salt, and remaining 1/8 tsp. black pepper. Mix well.

Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.

Distribute egg mixture among the hash-brown crusts. Bake until the egg mixture is fully cooked and crusts are golden brown, 18–20 minutes.
