I also cooked the potatoes and spinach a bit before adding the egg and cheese. I wanted the potatoes to be nice and crispy and didn't want the egg to be too hard. We'll have it again tomorrow!! Perfect!!!!!! Read More

This was so good! A breakfast I made twice already in 2 weeks and will make again. I used fresh baby spinach and I scrambled my eggs and then put them on top of everything I don't like gooey yoke. I also sauteed some slice onions in olive oil and topped my florentine with them. So so good even my friend's daughter loved it and she is a very picky eater. Read More

Fantastic! I love love love loved this meal! I served it for dinner with two slices of bacon a slice of whole wheat toast and an orange. The seasonings were perfect the timing was pretty much right on (although I too started my hashbrowns early and then added the spinach and let it cook a little as well). For my husband I made scrambled eggs with a little Tobasco sauce since he won't eat his eggs any other way. I just scrambled them in a separte skillet and then put on top of the hash mix to re-warm them when I put my egg on. Next time I think I will add some scallions and chopped cherry tomatoes. Delish! Pros: Pretty easy Cons: None Read More

I used refrigerated preseasoned diced potatoes with steak flavor so it was extremely flavorful. I also used preshredded cheese so it was no fuss! Pros: Easy Fast Healthy Tasty Cons: Frozen spinach annoying to break up in microwave Read More

I sauteed onions & red bell peppers first removed them from pan and then browned the potatoes before adding additional ingredients. This was an excellent breakfast dish. My partner gave it 2 thumbs up. This will definitely be a make again recipe. Read More

I have used a very similar recipe for years. I sometimes omit the cheese because of calories and add diced tomatoes and avocado just before serving. Read More

I also start with just the potatoes in the pan so that they are nice and crispy. Slowly I add remainder of ingredients. I use frozen loose spinach in a bag so that I don't have to deal with a solid chunk of spinach ice. With loose spinach and pre-shredded cheese this goes together quickly. It has come to be my most favorite breakfast and my grandkids beg for it when they visit. Read More

This is very tasty. I would recommend grating the cheese ahead of time. You do not have to drain the spinach ahead of time if you buy the chopped spinach from a bag as the recipe calls for. YUM! Read More
