.....crunchy, salty, maybe with a fried egg on top.
I used to make them every Sunday with my over easy's.
I miss them.
I know I can eat potatoes as long as I pair them with foods with a low GI.
My mission is to make hash browns that I can eat.
With my grilled stuffed chicken.
Using the same cheese in both dishes.
I am thinking Rosti. A stuffed Rosti to be exact.
A thin layer of shredded potatoes, baked on a sheet pan, then stuffed with cheesy, gooey vegetables and served with poached or over easy eggs.
The Nudge would even like that.
I have 1 1/2 baking potatoes in the fridge, roasted red peppers and Muenster cheese. I need a side for dinner tonight.
Roasted Potatoes with Cheese and Red Peppers has a GI of 27.....
Good enough for me.
Here's how I made them:
I shredded 1 large Idaho Russet, soaked in water, drained them and squeezed them dry.
I sprayed a small non-stick pan with PAM and placed 1 cup of the shredded potatoes in and flattened them with a spatula. I then sprayed the top, covered with a lid and, on low, cooked them for 3 minutes.
I removed the lid and placed a thick slice of Muenster cheese in the center. Re-covered and let the cheese melt for about 1 minute, just to make it pliable.
I then added a 2" slice of roasted pepper on one half of the potatoes.
With a spatula I folded one half of the potato over the other and removed to a sheet pan. Just like you would a pan omelet.
I will throw the pan in the oven right before eating. Bake it on a high 450F until the cheese is melting out of the Rosti.
Remove to cool slightly and serve with your meal.
Now for the Nutritionals:
I believe I now have a hash brown potato pancake I can eat, even with my 'over-easy's'.
