Florentine Hash Skillet

  • 4 Teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups frozen hash browns (or precooked shredded potatoes--see ingredients notes)
  • 2 cups frozen chopped spinach
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch of salt to taste
  • Pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Layer hash browns and spinach into the pan.  Crack egg on top and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese.  Cover, reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook until the hash browns are starting to brown on the bottom, the egg is set and the cheese is melted (5-7 minutes).

Ingredient notes:

  • Shredded potatoes can be found in the refrigerated produce section or dairy section of most supermarkets.
  • You can lessen the fat, cholesterol and sodium content in this recipe by removing the cheese.

Note:  Serve this with a fruit and more veggies. Fill half your plate with fruits and veggies.
