from Better Homes and Gardens
(www.bgh.com)

Ingredients:
1 recipe of hash browns
1/4 cup  shredded Italian blend cheeses or mozzarella cheese (1 ounce)
8 eggs
Ground black pepper
8 teaspoons  refrigerated basil pesto (optional)
8 cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, halved

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line eight 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with parchment baking cups or parchment-lined foil pan lining paper with the parchment side up; set aside. Prepare Perfect Hash Browns. Let hash browns stand about 20 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
2. Divide hash browns between muffin cups, pressing hash browns into the bottoms and up the sides of the cups.
3. Divide cheese among hash-brown-lined cups. Crack an egg into each cup. Sprinkle with pepper. Top each cup with 1 teaspoon of the pesto (if desired) and two of the tomato halves. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are thickened. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Carefully remove from cups.
