I made these for a late breakfast and we really enjoyed the dish. I added a seeded jalapeno, but otherwise followed the recipe. Made for the 2015 Culinary quest.

Absolutely LOVE hash browns made this way. I have been doing them like this for most of my life. I prefer the tiny cubed potatoes, rather than the shredded type. These made for a delicious "Breakfast for Dinner". I served the hash browns along side Thank you for helping to make a yummy dinner! Made for CQ 2015 for LBOB's

Just like my Canadian grandmother used to make. We never had "American" hash browns except in restaurants. Love these. Love the onions in them.

Great simple recipe for taters!!! I made this scaled back to serve one, using a half of a leftover baked potato and using 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil. Served these with Venezuelan Perico eggs and raspberry bread for a wonderful lunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe Dee. Made for 2014 CQ.
