Cheesy Hash Brown Skillet

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Simply Potatoes for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that we are into Fall Mr. B and I are into more comfort food type meals.  We are also a little bit busier in our day jobs and still trying to maintain our goal of some weight loss before the holidays hit.
Simply Potatoes - Cheesy Hash Brown Skillet
We are also fond of meat and potatoes but with just the 2 of us, I don't like to buy a big bag and have them go bad.  Enter Simply Potatoes
Simply Potatoes
I have found that the Simply Potatoes fresh potato line suits us best! They are made with the freshest ingredients and are never frozen. They save me the time of peeling and or shredding and one package goes a long way with our eating habits!

Now, a meal is easy to put together whether it is breakfast. lunch on the weekend or, of course, a satisfying dinner!  Plus, I get to sneak in some extra nutrition! Score one for Kath!

The parent company of Simply Potatoes, Crystal Farms Company, is also known for other great-tasting, high quality foods such as cheese, butter and English muffins. Almost all of their products, including the Simply Potatoes, can be found in the dairy section of your favorite store.

One of the easiest meals I've made recently was a Cheesy Hash Brown Skillet. It can be prepared and on the table in about 30 minutes!  Perfect for those busy weeknights when I don't want to spend all night at the stove after a "fun" day at work. Plus, it's all made in one pan so, no sink full of dishes to clean up after! Score one more for Kath! And!  You should have everything already on hand. That makes the score 3 for Kath!

  13. I love these potatoes. And add cheese? I'm SET. I'm catching up on your recipes today because I've been an MIA bloggy-friend. YUMMMM.

  14. I'm glad that you mentioned you can use ground turkey. I've taken to substituting this almost all the time now. The secret is letting it sit still and get a nice caramelized color so it has good flavor. I've pinned this - nice and easy for a busy night:)
