  1. Preheat oven 375°F.

  4. Place 4 or 5 tots in each cup. Mash with a back of spoon to line the bottom and sides of each cup.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of cheddar cheese into each cup. Place in oven and bake 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the muffin pan from oven and break an egg into each cup. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top of each egg.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes until white and yolk are set and the eggs reach to your desired doneness.
