I make these usually on a Sunday morning. I love the smell of frying onions. I do not buy the ready hash browns anymore. I do make extra to serve for another breakfast during the week.

I actually made this for a dinner side dish. I wanted to make potatoes quickly without using the oven, and this was perfect! I microwaved the potatoes for 7 minutes, and they were just right. I threw on some salt, pepper, onion powder, and Penzey's Fox Point seasoning while they were in the pan, and they were delicious!

This is a great recipe. But I think I cooked my potatoes too much. My microwave has a lot of power. Maybe that's why. And also I diced the potatoes and they were all crumbly. Overall it was delicious. And since I cooked bacon in another pan, I poured a little bit of bacon grease to give some bacon taste to the potatoes. Thanks aronsinvest :) Made for cookbook tag game
