  • 3 cups frozen shredded hash browns

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen riced cauliflower

  • 1 cup frozen chopped seasoning blend (onions, bell peppers, celery) or stir-fry blend (onions, bell pepper)

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil, divided

  • 4 large eggs


  1. Combine hash browns, cauliflower, seasoning (or stir-fry) blend, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add 2 Tbsp. oil and toss to coat.

  2. Heat 1 tsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potato mixture; cook, stirring with a spatula, until the vegetables begin to soften and hold together a little, about 2 minutes. Continue cooking, undisturbed, until beginning to brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Gently lift portions with the spatula and flip, so that browned sides are on top. Break up a little with the spatula and continue cooking, undisturbed, until the underside is lightly browned, another 4 to 5 minutes. Continue cooking, breaking up and flipping, until most of the mixture is browned and crisped, 8 to 10 minutes more. Divide the mixture among 4 plates and keep warm.

  3. Add the remaining 2 tsp. oil to the skillet and return to medium heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and fry to desired doneness. Top each hash brown portion with a fried egg and serve at once.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
