  • Simply Potatoes brand hash browns are gluten-free. Not all brands of hash browns are gluten-free, so if you want this recipe to be gluten-free, be sure to check the label before you buy.
  • I used ground turkey for this recipe, but you also could use ground chicken or ground beef.
  • I used shallots in this recipe, but you could use onions instead.
  • I used carrots and green pepper, but you also could use peas or broccoli, and any other color of bell pepper.
  • I used sour cream in this recipe, but you also could use plain low-fat Greek yogurt.
  • I used ricotta cheese in this recipe, but you also could use a can of condensed cream of chicken or mushroom soup.

  1. To a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil, shallots and garlic. Stir to combine.
