Personal Notes:
I like to break the yolks in my eggs a bit once I put them into the hash brown cups
When I cheat on these, I use the Oscar Meyer Bacon pieces found in the "salad dressing"
section of the grocery store. They're the closest thing to fresh bacon I can find, and
all-natural. :)
You can also experiment with ham, sausage, and veggies to make them your own!
