    i love hash browns - whether they come in the form of a McDonalds Breakfast, inside a KFC burger or on my plate down at the local cafe - but as you can see by the aforementioned examples, they aren't really the healthiest of options...or so i thought.

    The McCain press office recently got in touch inviting bloggers to create their perfect breakfast featuring the newly reformulated hash browns and to begin with i thought about declining due to the fact i'm meant to be on a strict weight-loss plan. It wasn't until i noticed the 2 green traffic lights on the packaging that i changed my mind!

    The Tesco delivery man knocked on my door bright and early on saturday morning with my goodies so that i could get to work preparing myself a hearty breakfast to set me up for the day. With my diet in mind, i opted for eggs, smoked salmon, spinach, mushrooms and avocados to go alongside my hash browns notching up a fairly indulgent 462 calories (according to MyFitnessPal).

    The Hash Browns were delicious, with the perfect amount of crunch on the outside and a lovely golden color. the best part of all is that they were so much less greasy that i was expecting - McDonalds usually require about four napkins to soak up the fat! I think these work perfectly for a breakfast treat, plus at only £1.65 for a bag, they're really handy to keep in the freezer and use as an alternative side dish at dinnertimes too!
