I added in minced garlic also when sauteeing the onion but that is optional. These go great with eggs!

I think I have found my new favorite side dish!! LOL!!! I added an egg to the mix and it stuck together just fine.I didn't squeeze out the moisture from the hash browns before I mixed them. I don't know if that made a different from the other review but that's what I did. Yummy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2-3 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat; add in onion and saute for about 6-8 minutes or until tender (if adding in garlic add in the last 2-3 minutes of cooking).
  2. In a bowl mix the thawed hash browns with onion, seasoned salt and pepper.
  3. Heat more oil in the skillet; drop the hash brown mixture into about 3-inch rounds (if you find that the mixture has problems holding together then add in an slightly beaten egg).
  4. Cook about 4-5 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and crispy (press down with a spatula to flatten).
  5. Top each potato round with a slice of cheese; cook until melted.
  6. Delicious!
