My kids love to have breakfast for dinner. I don’t know if it’s because they feel like they’re breaking the rules, or they just love breakfast. Either way, it makes them happy.
They usually want pancakes or french toast. I like both of those too, but they don’t exactly fit with my daily points. So the other night I made them pancakes but made an egg & hash brown waffle for myself. It did not disappoint!
I bought Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. They are in the refrigerated section. I didn’t want to use frozen potatoes for this. I ate it with salsa and fat free sour cream on the side. I had to add one point for the sour cream bringing my total to 5 points, but it was totally worth it!
