Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen Southern-style hash brown potatoes (such as Ore-Ida)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup diced Canadian bacon (about 2 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat broiler.

Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add potatoes, onion, and bacon; saute 8 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. Remove from pan. Wipe pan clean with paper towels; recoat with cooking spray. Combine salt, hot sauce, pepper, eggs, and egg whites in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in potato mixture, cheese, and chopped green onions.
