Great hash variation

My family - even my 9-year-old - loved this meal. It had great flavor (I tweaked the spices a bit, substituting cumin for curry and omitting the ginger) and was really nutritious. It just took longer to get the potatoes crispy on the bottom - maybe because my pan was too full?

lots of veggies, lots of protein
Versatile recipe! And so good!

My daughter requested I make this for a second time, and we are all crazy about it! The second time I didn't have fresh spinach, so I substituted a box of frozen, chopped spinach. It goes together quickly with things I usually have around the house, and works well for breakfast or dinner.

Flexible, easy, delicious, filling
Awesome taste and easy cleanup!

My husband and i loved this! We doubled the recipe since we had the ingredients already and saved the rest for leftovers! This recipe was perfect for a weeknight as it only took about 40 mins and the cleanup was very easy! This recipe had a great european flavor and it was a nice change from our normal menu! This will be made often!

Quick, hearty, and delicious!
Great weeknight meal

I made this without the chickpeas and it was delicious. This was a great weeknight meal. I like the other reviewer's suggestion to only put in two eggs (if there are only two of you) and save the rest for leftovers.

Quick, easy, and healthy
Dinner or brunch hit

I used the ingredients as written, except adding a couple dashes cayenne pepper at the end. Delicious and filling! My husband and I set one half of the hash aside for leftovers just before you would add the eggs. We only needed two eggs for our dinner serving, and will heat up the remainder tomorrow, using two fresh eggs then. The dish could easily become a part of a good brunch with guests, just divide everything into two skillets and use four eggs per skillet.

Fairly quick, vegetarian, easily expandable

I am surprised by this

I am surprised by this recipe. In my experience those packaged frozen hash brown are quite high in fat and unhealthy choice. Would the recipe be similar if you just shredded a few potatoes instead of using the processed potatoes?

What do you think if I were

What do you think if I were to use shredded sweet potato instead of the hashbrown potatoes? I'm a big fan of sweet potatoes, but wondering if something about the hashbrown consistency makes the hash better?
