Simple but tasty. Can be assembled ahead earlier in day. I would like to thank Chef#231057 for writing the first review of this recipe but you have your zmail locked in your settings. Hope you see this. :) My inspiration for this came from Hash Brown Potato Bundles so if you like packet cooking I suggest you try it as it is excellent! Recently made this with pre sliced SWISS cheese instead of cheddar and delicious also. Sometimes I add drained corn to this.

This was really good! I was weary of the ranch dressing, but it was tastey!! I made it with shredded hashbrowns but otherwise made as is. Made for PRMR.

These Hammy Hash Brown Packets are easy to make, & even fun for kids. They are great for an addition to any meal, and they taste Great! I like them with a soft fried/poached egg. I have substituted frozen diced hash browns, (and even used tater tots, if I didn't have the frozen patties) instead of the hashbrowns. I enjoyed them with another recipe; green eggs & ham.

Yum! I'll add that photo too. Thanks for sharing WiGal!

Ham,cheese,potato and onion.... are all made to marry together in a perfect union,and this is no exception. I forgot the ranch in my hurry to bake these off and devour them-but I don't think they suffered for it. We loved these little fellows-so simple,so tasty,so go and make them!! Thanks WiGal.
