Potato and Egg Cupcakes

I recently received a review copy of the book Muffin Tin Chef by Matt Kadey.  If I wrote the book, I would have called it Cupcake Tin Chef.  Other than that, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.  The book is filled with ideas (and when I say filled, I mean that there are 101 ideas there) for sweet and savory dishes to make in cute single-serving sizes.  I’ve loved Matt’s blog, Muffin Tin Mania, for years, and the book is now a valued addition to my collection.

This week, I’m going to feature two recipes that I’ve made inspired by Muffin Tin Chef (I’ve also got a book giveaway coming soon!).  Matt wrote an entire chapter just on brunch muffin tin recipes.  Since brunch is my favorite meal (seriously, does it get any better than brunch?), I focused my energies there.

Matt’s Parmesan hash browns caught my eye right away – you can’t go wrong with carbs and cheese!  But, since Matt is talking muffins and I’m talking cupcakes, I knew mine were going to need some frosting.  I took his Parmesan hash brown muffins an extra step and topped them with deviled egg frosting (a sweet twist on deviled eggs).  With Mother’s Day coming soon, these potato and egg cupcakes might be just the thing to start Mom’s morning off right.
