Excellent! Beachgirl, only thing I changed was to use refrigerated purchased hash browns and they worked great! I loved the no hassle cooking by throwing them in the over and not having to stand over the stove, by doing that they became much lower in fat too! Great recipe to be made lots here!!! TY

Fantastic! I made this for our book club and they were the first thing finished. I purchased the refrigerated hash browns and add about 2 tblspns of grated red onion and some parsley. They were so tasty and they look appetising as well! Thanks Beachgirl!
