A delicous hash brown recipe. I doubled the onion amount. The cooking times were accurate.

I made these as directed, except I decided to bake in my cast iron au gratin pan in the oven instead. My family really liked these. I did think that they needed a little salt, but that is just personal preference. Thanks for the recipe.

These were very tasty. Like Bergy mentioned, I overcooked mine a little bit, so they were more of a mashed consistency than a "hash" consistency. The flavorings were excellent though the BF thought there was a tad too much garlic. I will definitely make this again though I was a little scared by all of the butter. Thanks for sharing!
