Potato Bacon and Onion Patties

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Marie

To make these much easier, I use prepared unseasoned hash brown potatoes from the refrigerator section. Cooking time is approximate per batch. These are good!

Top Review by Jellyqueen

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.
