This was surprisingly good! (Of course, I changed it a bit which added more taste but calories too!) It’s a Taste of Home recipe from the Comfort Food Diet Cookbook.
1 1/2 cups egg substitute (I used 4 eggs)
1/2 cup fat free milk
3 1/2 cups frozen O’Brien hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 1/3 cups shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese, divided (I just used regular cheddar cheese)
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion (I used a tablespoon of dried onion)
4 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon, divided (I used 4 tablespoons Bacos)
1/2 teaspoon salt (left it out)
1/2 teaspoon salt free seasoning blend (I used 1/2 teaspoon Season All)
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
4 green onions, chopped (didn’t have any so left them out)
1 In a large bowl, whisk the egg substitute and milk. Stir in the hash browns, 1 cup cheese, onion, 2 tablespoons bacon, salt, seasoning blend and chili powder. Pour into an 8″ square baking dish coated with cooking spray.
2 Bake at 350 for 45 – 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and bacon. Bake 3 – 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with green onions. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
