I wanted something simple for supper last night, so I tried these. I did use the frozen hash browns and I didn't have any problems with them holding together. The only problem I had was trying to decide just how many hash browns I needed to use. You may want to consider adding a approximate cup amount to the potato quantity. I just added until I got the consistency I needed. Overall, a really good recipe. Will make these again. Thanks for the great recipe.
We were a little disappointed in this recipe. Made it exactly as shown, using the refrigerator hash browns. The bacon and onions are a good combination, but the egg and flour, made the potatoes on the gritty side. They also did not hold up well as a patty. I basically had a frying pan full of hashbrowns and not patties. Will try them again, sometime, as hash browns, not patties, with regular potatoes, bacon and onion and skip the egg and flour.
