These Cheeseburger Hash Brown Cups are like a cheeseburger and French fries all in one! If you think those two make a good team when side-by-side, just wait until you try them together. Yum! The hash browns form a perfect cup that’s crispy on the outside and soft and potato-ey on the inside. Each cup is then piled high with seasoned ground beef, ketchup, mustard and tomatoes and topped with melty cheddar cheese. Sound sinful? One of these tasty and filling cups weighs in at a mere 131 calories and only 3 Green, 3 Blue or 2 Purple Weight Watchers SmartPoints. It’s true!
I eat two cups as a main course and serve them with some veggies on the side for a complete meal. It’s super filling and takes care of any fast food cravings in one fell swoop!
Hash brown cups piled high with seasoned ground beef, ketchup, mustard and tomatoes and topped with melty cheddar cheese!
Yield: 12hash brown cups
20ozshredded hash brown potatoes, I used the pre-shredded refrigerated kind such as Simply Potatoes or Reser’s (use defrosted zero point hash browns if following the myWW Purple plan)
Black pepper to taste
1lb95% lean ground beef*
1tablespoonhamburger seasoning, I use McCormick brand – recommended!
6grape tomatoes, chopped
½cupshredded 2% cheddar cheese
*if you replace the ground beef with 99% lean ground turkey breast each cup will be 2 SP or two cups for 5 SP on WW Freestyle
Pre-heat the oven to 375. Thoroughly mist 12 cups in a standard muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
Place the shredded potatoes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Add the salt and black pepper and stir to coat. Divide the coated potatoes into the prepared muffin cups and press the hash browns down and up the sides of the cups to form a well in each. Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
While the cups are baking, mist the bottom of a large skillet with cooking spray and cook the onions over medium heat for a few minutes until softened. Add the ground beef and hamburger seasoning and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon until browned. Transfer the meat and onions to a bowl and add the ketchup, mustard and chopped tomatoes. Stir to combine.
When the hash brown cups are ready, remove from the oven and divide the meat mixture evenly amongst the cups. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the piled meat in the cups and return the pan to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and hash browns are golden brown. Allow to cool for five minutes, remove from pan and serve.
