Of this dish, HG Lisa says, "I want to jump into the bowl and eat it all! I could eat this all day, every day." Sure, it's a b-fast dish, but we love breakfast for dinner...

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Cool: 5 minutes


1 cup roughly chopped cauliflower

1/4 cup quick-cooking corn grits

2 dashes salt

1/4 cup (about 2 large) egg whites

1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

3 cups roughly chopped spinach leaves

1 tsp. dried minced onion

2 large eggs

Optional topping: black pepper


Pulse cauliflower in a blender until reduced to rice-sized pieces. Transfer to a medium microwave-safe bowl.

Add grits, a dash of salt, and 1/3 cup water. Mix well. Cover and microwave for 2 minutes, or until thickened.

Stir well, and let cool for 5 minutes.

Add egg whites and cheese, and mix thoroughly.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and crumble cauliflower mixture until fully cooked and lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

Add spinach, onion, and remaining dash of salt. Cook and stir until spinach has wilted, about 1 minute.

Divide mixture between 2 plates or bowls, and cover to keep warm.

Remove skillet from heat; clean, if needed. Re-spray, and bring to medium heat. Crack eggs into the skillet, well spaced from each other, and cook per your preference. (Or cook one at a time.)

Top each portion of the hash with an egg.
