Four-Star Golden-State Swap

There's really no need to splurge on the original when our swap for this breakfast dish is so delicious, hearty, and low in calories. Skip all that extra fat -- it's a snap!

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

2/3 cup frozen shredded hash browns
2/3 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
3 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast
3 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
2 tbsp. salsa or pico de gallo with 90mg of sodium or less per serving
1 oz. sliced avocado (about 1/4th of an avocado)
Optional seasonings: salt, black pepper

Directions:
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-low heat. Cook and stir hash browns until hot and browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, and cover to keep warm.

Remove skillet from heat; clean, if needed. Re-spray skillet, and bring to medium heat. Add egg whites/substitute and chicken breast. Scramble until egg is fully cooked and chicken is warm, about 3 minutes. Stir in cheese and salsa, and transfer to the bowl of hash browns.

Top with avocado, and enjoy!

Fight it! Steak 'n Shake California Skillet with Chicken

Un-Califor-tunate

Please, Steak 'n Shake. If you're gonna name a dish after our home state, do that dish right. We love us some avocado over here on the West Coast. And pico de gallo? We put that stuff on everything! So this skillet grabbed our attention, especially since it can be ordered with grilled chicken rather than sausage. That should be a safe bet, right? No, ma'am! The hash browns, the eggs, the cheddar cheese... It all adds up in a serious way. The best way to get this tasty breakfast combo without compromising your diet is to stick with our version. Swapping out the eggs for whites or fat-free egg substitute couldn't be easier, and with so many other ingredients in the mix, you'll barely notice the difference. Lighten up the cheese, say no to oil, and watch those avocado portions. Now there's a breakfast worth putting our state's name on!
