  1. 1. Prepare the Hash Brown Cups:
    If using frozen hash brown patties, follow the package instructions to cook them until they are golden and crispy.
    If making homemade hash browns, shred the potatoes and squeeze out excess moisture. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and form the shredded potatoes into cup shapes. Cook until they’re golden brown and crisp on both sides.

    2. Cook the Bacon:
    In a separate pan or skillet, cook the bacon strips until they are crispy and golden. Place them on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease.

    3. Poach the Eggs:
    Fill a large saucepan with water, about two-thirds full. Add a pinch of salt.
    Bring the water to a gentle simmer.
    Crack one egg into a small bowl. Create a gentle whirlpool in the simmering water by stirring it with a spoon, then carefully slide the egg into the center of the whirlpool.
    Poach the egg for about 3-4 minutes for a runny yolk or longer for a firmer yolk.
    Use a slotted spoon to remove the poached egg from the water and place it on a plate lined with a paper towel. Repeat with the remaining eggs.

    4. Assemble the Breakfast Cups:
    Carefully place a hash brown patty in each serving dish to form a cup.
    Gently nestle a poached egg inside each hash brown cup.
    Wrap each egg-filled cup with a crispy bacon strip, creating a savory embrace around the egg.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste.
