Shopping Tips

Frozen hash brown potatoes are sold in most supermarkets. They contain no fat, just shredded potatoes. I used Ore Ida’s frozen, plain, shredded hash browns. One serving (1¼ cups) has 70 calories, 0g fat, 0g chol, 10g carbs, 1g protein, 1g fiber, 12mg sodium, 0g sugar

I used delicious lean ham I bought at Trader Joe’s. It’s uncured and contains no nitrates! Most heath food markets sell this type of healthy ham. Turkey ham would also work for this recipe.
