Step 1: Things You Will Need

1 Package of thick sliced bacon ( I used turkey bacon)
6 Links breakfast sausage
3 Eggs
2 Hash brown patties
1 Muffin pan
1 cup of shredded cheese ( I used a Pepper jack/Havarti Blend)
Maple Syrup (optional)

Step 2: Prep Work

1. Cut sausage links into little chunks and cook in frying pan on medium heat until browned.
2. Cut hash browns into little chunks.
3. Beat eggs
4. Shred cheese if needed.

Step 3: Assembly

1. Place 1 strip of bacon into the hole of the muffin pan so that it sits flat inside and the edges rest over
    the lip of the hole .
2. Add a second piece of bacon into the pan so that it makes a cross shape. (if the bacon doesn't
    completely cover the muffin hole, and more strips until it does)
3. Place a small amount of egg into bacon cup (about 1 or 2 tablespoons).
4. Place a layer of sausage chunks in the bottom of the bacon cup.
5. Add a pinch of cheese on top of sausage.
6. Add a large spoonful of egg on top of cheese.
7. Place a layer of hash brown chunks on top of egg & cheese .
8. Add another large spoonful of egg on top of hash browns.
9. Add another pinch of cheese on top of everything.
10. Starting with the first (and lowest)  piece of bacon placed into the cup, Fold the ends over the
      cheese in a circular order until they have all been folded over the top. (If the ends don't want to
      stay put, use a toothpick to pin them down.)
11. Bake in oven at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes (or until bacon is crisp), Then remove from tray, and let cool for 5 minutes.
12. Serve with maple syrup (optional)

    Well, Good For you!!! You know what, you have inspired me to change my ways. I'm going to delete all my instuctables that have turkey bacon in them just for you. That's just how special you are (insert sarcasm here.)

    After reading this instruct. I went and made this for my Girlfriend, now I have to make all the breakfast for us.
    Switched the shredded pepper jack cheese for taco blended cheese. and used apple wood smoked bacon, you just cant go wrong with apple wood.
    WE LOVE the our BACON..

    Sorry, I'm all out. But my business associate, danny6114, might have a couple you can buy. You can find him a little lower on this comment section.

    My daughter and I make it a point to cook breakfast together every Saturday or Sunday. Our last adventure was making banana crepes with amped-up bisquick. (Topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and a drizzle of strawberry syrup!). I'll definitely be making this the upcoming weekend's treat!

    I head home from Afghanistan in about two weeks...I know what is being made for breakfast my first weekend home!

    Wow, I think my dinner plans just changed. I've got bulk breakfast sausage and frozen loose hashbrowns instead of the patties, but I believe those modifications (and maybe another one or two...) will only enhance. :^)

    Well upgrades are always a plus, you should comment again to tell me what ideas you have came up with. Thanks

    Okay, so I followed your instructions except:
    1) I added some heavy cream when I whisked the eggs.
    2) I browned some bulk (turkey) breakfast sausage with the frozen hashbrowns. I added some onion, garlic, jalapeño, red bell pepper tossed in about halfway through the browning time.

    Topped the first dollop of egg mixture with some of that and then proceeded with your recipe to finish.

    Delicious! Everybody wanted more. Thanks, these were fun to make and eat!
