I found the basic recipe for this in the TOH 1994 Annual Recipes. It was sent in to them by Ruth Tacoma of Falmouth, Michigan. The original called for 2 medium potatoes, peeled and grated. But to save time, I decided to use frozen shredded hashbrowns that had been thawed. If needed squeeze the water out of the potatoes with your hands. Prep time doesn't include cooking the bacon.
