  1. Well, these were nifty little treats! More like a mashed potato patty than hash browns, but terrific flavor. Almost a loaded baked potato! I used fresh parsley and regular bacon (its what we had in the freezer). I also left out the stock. I think these would go perfect with grilled steak or roasted chicken.
  2. Yum! I really enjoyed the fluffy and light texture with nice little crispy bacon surprises throughout. I served two large ones with a mixed salad for dinner.
