From hash browns to home fries, potatoes are a classic breakfast staple that have a home on every diner’s menu. While they are technically a vegetable, these starchy spuds have the ability to sabotage your healthy eating efforts with their high carb content. Enjoy all of your brunch favorites without the guilt by substituting potatoes with cauliflower! We feature this famous low carb swap in a Cauliflower Breakfast Hash recipe that’s sure to become a favorite on your weight loss menu.
To make this healthy breakfast, get started by prepping your vegetables. You will need one diced bell pepper, half of a diced onion and four cups of riced cauliflower. You can either make your own riced cauliflower or purchase a premade version from the grocery store. These vegetables will be the base of your breakfast hash. Once your chopped veggies are ready, move on to makin’ your bacon. Cook up four slices of turkey bacon in a pan on the stovetop. Once they are fully cooked, remove them from the heat to cool and chop them into large bacon bits.
Now that your individual components are ready, it’s time to put it all together. Heat two teaspoons of olive oil in pan over medium heat. Add your diced onions and peppers and cook them until they become soft. Throw in your cauliflower rice and chopped bacon and continue cooking until these are also soft. Using a spoon, make four openings or grooves in the cauliflower hash and spray them with a nonstick cooking spray. Crack an egg into each opening, cover the pan with a lid and cook for two minutes or until the eggs reach your desired doneness. Season your breakfast hash skillet with a dash of black pepper and garnish with one chopped green onion before serving.
