Hash Browns tonight. Traditionally, my guys have theirs with a jar of pasta sauce, a diced onion, and a few cut up hot dogs. To this my son sometimes adds Parmesan cheese. I've made this a number of times with vegan versions of these things and he knows and disapproves. Oh, well, I tried make it healthier.
For me, in a different non-stick pan, I put the taters and onions, sometimes a handful of garlic cloves, dry-fry 'em, and add about a half cup of nooch to my half a bag of Ore-Ida hash browns. Sometimes I add some ketchup when eating them, but these are usually perfect as-is.This much makes 2 breakfasts or lunches or one really filling dinner when served with a salad.
Tonight, the kid will have his traditional ones, but hubby and I will have ours the way I always make mine, plus this on top instead of ketchup for a change:

I always skip the soy sauce to keep this as low in sodium as possible. Knowing my husband, he'll also add a hefty portion of Daiya cheddar to his portion.
