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!

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.
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.
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!
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!!!!!!
