Notes: Work Time: 20 minutes; Total Time: 45 minutes. Traditional hash
brown potatoes, the roadside diner staple, can certainly be reworked to
become model healthy breakfast fare. Potatoes are rich in complex
carbohydrates and vitamin C. By enhancing their flavor, adding vegetables,
and reducing fat, they become a whole new dish. Tamara's version has
vibrant Southwestern ingredients to build flavor, and lots of green and red
peppers to boost nutritional content. By using a nonstick pan, I can add
much less fat.
