Hash Browns

Low fat hash browns is a low fat breakfast recipe that your family will love. Back in the old days when I used to enjoy McDonald’s, they were in my list of favorite things to eat for breakfast. Little did I know that the hash browns I loved so much contained a large amount of fat. Nor did I care either.
But ever since I became health conscious, I avoided them. Lucky that I found this low fat breakfast recipe, which I think you’ll really enjoy with a nice cup of skinny flat white coffee (0.5 WW pts), and even a couple of toasts (2 extra WW pts) if you feel particularly hungry. Nice low fat breakfast!

Ingredients for Low fat hash browns:

  • 1 lb (500 g) of unpeeled potatoes
  • 4 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 kg (2 lb) of field mushrooms
  • 2 Tbs authentic balsamic vinegar
  • Canola Oil Spray (or Olive Oil Spray)
  • Salt and Pepper

This is what you do:

To prepare these delicious low fat hash browns, you need to cook the potatoes. You have 2 options: Option 1 consists in boiling the potatoes till they’re tender. Options 2 consists of “nuking” your potatoes in the microwave. That’s quicker, and that’s what I do. 😉

Place the potatoes in an oven proof bowl, cover with water, and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Nuke them for 10 minutes, and poke them with a fork to check their tenderness.

Drain them and set the aside to cool down… Meanwhile, preheat your grill/broiler.

Once the potatoes have cooled down, grate them into the bowl, and season with salt and pepper.

Spray a baking tray with the oil, shape the mixture into 8 patties, and put them on the tray.

Now halve the tomatoes and place the mushrooms on the tray together with the low fat hash browns, and sprinkle half the balsamic vinegar.

Place the tray in the preheated grill and cook for about 5 minutes or so, and then turn the mushrooms over and sprinkle some more balsamic vinegar and continue cooking for another 10 minutes.

Remove the tomatoes and mushrooms from the grill.

Spray the low fat hash browns with oil and place them in the grill (on “high”) and cook for 5 minutes each side (till they go nice, gold, crispy and delicious)…

Serve with the tomatoes and mushrooms and, if you’re really hungry… have a couple of toasts (no butter!) and your skinny flat white as I said above.
