Spring is one of my favorite seasons for so many reasons, including Easter and Mother’s Day brunches. I absolutely love any excuse for a good brunch! Today, I’m observing Frozen Food Month by sharing my cauliflower gnocchi brunch skillet recipe which celebrates veggies in a fun, delicious new way!
As I’m always seeking ways to incorporate more farm fresh veggie goodness into our daily meals, I’m truly delighted with both these new products. They not only taste great, they are made with real cauliflower and contain a full serving of vegetables in each serving. If you happen to have picky eaters in your family, it’s an ideal way to swap-in more veggies without sacrificing taste.
Green Giant® Cauliflower Gnocchi
When I picked up the package of Green Giant® Cauliflower Gnocchi Original, I immediately knew I wanted to try using it in my traditional gnocchi skillet that I often make for brunch. It’s a quick, easy and savory dish that’s great for breakfast, brunch or even those times when you’re in the mood for traditional breakfast fare at dinnertime.
While I use pork sausage in my recipe, you could even go full-on-veggie and swap in vegetable sausage crumbles, instead.
If you want a heartier meal with more veggie power, use Green Giant® Veggie Hash Browns Cauliflower for your side dish. Below you’ll find directions for adding a little flair to your hash browns with sour cream, scallions, and even a little bit of bacon, if preferred.
Together these two dishes will make your brunch time a delectable treat!
Green Giant® also offers Gnocchi with Cauliflower & Spinach and Hash Browns with Cauliflower and Broccoli. I’m looking forward to trying these varieties next.
After you print the recipes for your use, be sure to scroll down for some special giveaways. Hope you enjoy sharing my Cauliflower Gnocchi Brunch Skillet with your friend and family and truly enjoy the extra veggie love in eat bite!
