About the Recipe


You can use any cheese (that can be shredded) of your choice here. At the time I was making these, I had some Jarlsberg cheese I wanted to use so I used a cup of Jarlsberg and a cup of cheddar.


1 lb of frozen shredded hash browns (I used Ore-Ida Brand) which is about half the bag

1 lb of cauliflower florets

3/4 cup of diced onion (I use Vidalias)

2 cups of shredded cheese of your choice (see before you start above)

4 TBSP of unsalted butter

1 tsp of kosher salt

1/2 tsp of black pepper

1/2 tsp of Lawry's seasoned salt

1/2 tsp of dried thyme

2 cloves of minced garlic -Unlike Ina, I use a garlic press for this

2 eggs

Frying Pan


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9"x13" baking pan with a non stick spray.

Step 2: Gently try to break apart the frozen shredded hash browns. You may need to defrost them a bit in the microwave. They don't need to be completely defrosted; just enough to break them apart.

Step 3: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut the cauliflower into small florets trying to keep them all the same size for even cooking. Once the water is boiling, carefully add the florets and cook until they fall off a fork when pierced. Drain and finely chop them.

Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, add the cauliflower, diced onion, slightly defrosted shredded hash browns, cheese and mix to combine.

Step 4: Melt the butter in a microwave until it's just melted. Add the minced garlic, Lawry's seasoned salt , dried thyme and salt and pepper and stir to combine. Pour over the cauliflower and hash brown mixture and mix gently.

Step 5: In a small clean bowl, crack and mix the eggs. Pour over the hash brown mixture and mix well.

Step 6: Put the mixture into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 35 minutes. If you like a crispy top, you can always use your broiler until the top is brown and bubbly. If you do broil them, don't take your eye off them as they'll burn quickly.

Step 7: Let them sit for 2-3 minutes before cutting them into squares (size of your choice).
