Along the same lines as the Potato Hash recipe, but easier to do (because I am always trying to find the shortcuts), I fix up basically the same thing but I use the Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien. They are hash browns (small chunks) that already have the bell peppers and onions in the package. I cook according to the directions then I add thick/chunky salsa to the mixture. For variation, I sometimes add small black beans or red kidney beans or even some scrambled up extra lean ground round or some broiled/grilled chicken or Fat Free smoked sausage. The sausage makes it more like a breakfast meal, you can even add scrambled egg substitute if you want.

(Hey, just because I am lazy does not mean I am not creative)

As per the Potato Hash Recipe,I will try adding the corn. I am a member of WW, so I will see how many 'points' the corn will add. If I want this be like a casserole, I put a slice of Smart Beat (low cholesterol/fat) cheese on top and put under the broiler for just a short time. I usually eat it kind of as dip with WOW! tortilla chips or wrap it up in a tortilla. This concoction is very easy to figure WW points on, depending on what kind of additions you make. The basic Potatoes O'Brien is 60 cal, 1 gram of fiber and 0 grams of fat for 3/4th of a cup. This is equivalent to 1 point for WW.

It is a very filling meal, a large amount of the Potatoes O'Brien can be fixed early in the week, then each time you heat it up, you can add whatever variations you want! Enjoy!
