Bacon-Topped Loaded Potato Cupcakes

Everyone loves a fun new way to eat an every day food! I wanted to create a new way to eat Idaho potatoes in a familiar form that my family would love. I decided to make a hash brown potato cupcake held together with eggs, containing my favorite potato toppings, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and applewood bacon! The "frosting" consists of cheesy mashed potatoes! I then topped them with more bacon. These "cupcakes" makes dinner fun for everyone who eats them and my entire family loves them! They are unexpected and very tasty and I'm sure we will now be enjoying them quite often!!!!
