  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 1/2 cups refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cups thinly sliced cremini or button mushrooms (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped spinach (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 3/4 cups egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese


Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine potatoes, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Press potatoes into the bottom and up sides of a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion to pan; sauté for 6 minutes or until tender.
