Low Fat Hash Mash
Although I actually really enjoy meal prepping, I can totally appreciate what a pain it can be. Especially because I not only do it for myself, but also for my super-picky husband, Vinnie. If it's not made with bacon or cheese, he can smell it out faster than a toddler tracking down the cookie stash. I know what I'm up against, and I know that anything "different" can end in absolute rejection. Vinnie isn't one to try new things, or eat anything that doesn't scream "meat n potatoes."
The other challenge is finding a tasty dish that's not crazy high in carbs and fat. When that doesn't happen, I get in the kitchen, cross my fingers, and start creating. With this dish, I started out making a hash, but then ended with a healthy, low-fat mashed potato that's so full of classic flavor. At first, Vinnie was predictably skeptical. He approached the spoon in my hand like a skittish animal - wide-eyed and untrusting. The miniature bite he took was barely enough to taste.
