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!

Cauliflower Gnocchi Brunch Skillet with Cauliflower Hash Browns with Sour Cream and Scallions

Green Giant® has introduced a clever product that lets me add more vegetables into my breakfast and brunch dishes with Green Giant® Cauliflower Gnocchi & Green Giant® Veggie Hash Browns.

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!

    I love the cauliflower hash brown and think they would be great added with garden peas and orange bell peppers.

      Yum, that sounds like a delicious combo! The hash browns are terrific. They are even a great toast substitute for like Avocado toast.

    We bought an air fryer last year and we use it to cook hashbrowns regularly. We don’t really do anything special with them. They are usually just a side dish or are shredded and put inside breakfast taquitos. I think we would probably use these in much the same way.

      Aren’t air fryers wonderful? We use our regularly, too and these cauliflower hash browns turn out perfect in the air fryer. Yum to breakfast taquitos, sounds delicious!

      They both are, for sure! We were surprised how good they are and you really don’t realize they are made with cauliflower as a primary ingredient at all. Let me know what you think when you get the chance to try them!

    We actually have Green Giant cauliflower gnocchi in our freezer. I bought it when it was bogo at Publix. I’ve been pondering what to do with it and enjoyed looking at the Green Giant recipes. I think we will make Cauliflower Gnocchi with Pancetta and Peas! It sounds really good.
