Well, these were nifty little treats! More like a mashed potato patty than hash browns, but terrific flavor. Almost a loaded baked potato! I used fresh parsley and regular bacon (its what we had in the freezer). I also left out the stock. I think these would go perfect with grilled steak or roasted chicken.

  1. Peel potatoes and cut in half; place in large saucepan and cook uncovered for 15 - 20 minutes until soft; mash.
  2. Fine dice onion and bacon; Spray frypan with cooking oil and sauté both for 5 minutes.
