Almost Waffle House Hash Browns

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I love the hashbrowns you can get at Waffle House.I love mine fixed the way they call them "Scattered,Smothered,Chunked".But I don't always have the time or the money to go very often.So I decided to come up with what I consider to be close enough to them to satisfy that "Waffle House Hashbrown Craving".You could use regular potatoes that have been peeled and shredded,but for this recipe I prefer to use the refrigerated ones.Serve with your favorite style eggs and toast.

This is a very good hearty hash brown recipe. I will make this again as it was liked by all. I lvoe the addition of ham in it as it gives it a completely different flavor. Very good, thank you for posting.
