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 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

Quick and delicious This was awesome!! First of all it's easy to keep these ingredients on hand because they're all frozen or refrigerated. Second it's very fast and easy to put together. Third you only get one pan and one lid dirty easy peasy. Fourth but most importantly it's DELICIOUS!! It has great flavor and satisfies my hunger and savory tooth. Pros: Fast easy delicious comvenient Cons: Nothing 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

Super easy & really delicious! I sauteed onion with the hash browns & stirred in fresh chopped spinach. I pushed that aside to keep warm added a bit of butter & fried my sunny side uppers on the other half of the pan. Plated the potato/spinach mix first & topped with eggs. I will make this often...good & good for you! Pros: one pan wonder. Looks & tastes gourmet. Cons: none. Read More

This is a really satisfying breakfast. I cooked the potatoes for a bit before adding the spinach to make sure that they got really crispy then I added the frozen spinach and let it thaw/heat up for a bit before adding the egg. It was delicious and I will make it again...it's only 5 Weight Watchers Points too...AMAZING for such a delicious breakfast. Read More

This is a fantastic breakfast. I grate the cheese the night before and then just throw everything into the pan bleary-eyed at 5:30 in the morning. 8 minutes later voila! Breakfast! Quick easy brainless and tasty. I love this breakfast! Read More

Sounds good but directions not clear. Do you have to thaw/drain the spinach first? 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

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 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

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

Not bad Pretty good but I made it for lunch and had to double or even triple the portion-size listed here. 1/2 cup of hash browns just wasn't going to cut it for me! Like some other posters I also cooked the hash browns ahead of time because I wanted them nice and crispy. I also cooked up some fresh spinach and then the eggs and put everything together at the end. Read More
