what do I do with the rest of the package of hashbrowns? Moderator comment: You could freeze until you make this recipe again. Any other suggestions?

I did not have hash browns so subsituted fresh mushrooms and added a teaspoon of skinny cow cheese, and served with a flour tortilla. It had a sweet flavor, and was very tasty.

Taste delicous. Perfect for the size of my appetite (eat small size meals). Like the idea of a combination of omelet filled with cooked hash brown potatoes and veggies.
