I came across this recipe about a month ago, and have been using it again and again for my family. I add a little bit of rosemary for the lady. The spice mixing also works for making frozen hash browns of the cubed kind if you're in a rush but want the flavor.

Excellent. The spice combination was right on for us as was the serving size. I did cook mine a little longer to get them even more crisp. Just loved this. thanks so much for sharing. I'll make these again. :)
