These were wonderful. I used some refrigerated hash browns, Simply Potatoes, and they worked great! These were so tasty and easy to make. Thanks for posting.

Made these for our weekly 'breakfast for dinner' with eggs, bacon and toast and they were a perfect addition! I liked that they got crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through. Will be making these again since they are so easy. Only change I made was to add a little seasoned salt in the mix. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
