5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. This is one of the best and easiest recipes. When I first made up this recipe, I had to make 2 runs of these crunchy little mouthful of pleasure!! The great thing about this recipe is that you can add anything you like to the potato mixture. Hot pepper, onions, and cheese is great mixed with the potatoes, then deep fried. I live in the south and everything is better deep fried!
- oil (for deep-frying)
- 15 cocktail franks, dried well with paper towels (you can also use hotdogs cut in bite size pieces)
- 1 (24 ounce) bag Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
