Healthy Hash Browns

I LOVE breakfast!!!! It is my favorite meal, which is why at times I have it for lunch and/or dinner 🙂 . Well a favorite of the BF is what he called a ‘Hash brown Sausage Sandwich’. It was two hash brown patties with a big piece of sausage in the middle. This is the one thing he raved about from his time in the Army ( he was stationed at Ft. Bragg). So to change this up into a healthy version I looked to two things, a easy hash brown recipe and a healthy sausage recipe.

I have found both.

The hash brown recipe is from here. And goes as follows.

What you need

  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced Onions
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp Reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar Cheese (I used Sargento)

How to make it

Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  1. Peel the potatoes. Using a cheese grater, grate the potatoes into thin strips.
  2. Using your hands, squeeze as much water as you can from the potatoes.
  3. transfer the potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 tsp salt, pepper, paprika, onions, and cheese.
  4. Then flatten  the mixture into  two 8in pie pans. ( I like to do it this way so there is less work compared to making 1/4 cup patties)
  5. Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes.
  6. After 15 minutes, remove pie pans from the oven. They should be browned on the bottom. Flip each one over and flatten slightly.( I use a plate to flip them over with)
  7. Return to oven and bake for another 30ish minutes ( I like to check the outside edges to see if they are crunchy, but not burnt)
