Preheat oven to 425°F.
Grease a muffin tin, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your fresh or thawed hash browns, cheese, garlic, spices & oil.
Press your hash brown mixture evenly into your muffin tin, forming a ‘nest’ in each cup. Bake for 20 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Remove from oven, set aside & set oven temperature to 350°F.
In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, baking powder and your 1 tbs of parmesan cheese. Beat together well. Pour your egg mixture into each of your pre-baked hash brown nests. Sprinkle with dried cilantro. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until eggs are firm, puffed and beginning to turn golden.
Let cool for a few minutes before gently lifting out of your muffin tin to serve.
