These are wonderful for breakfast or brunch. Super easy to make and remind me of McDonald's hash browns! The recipe calls for grated potatoes, but I make with leftover mashed potatoes and it is sinfully good! If you use leftover mashed, just skip step 1 in directions. My mom made these all the time growing up and it is a good reminder of home.
