These hashbrowns were a big hit this morning. My husband loved them with the Gouda cheese. So easy to throw together and a lot less hassle than the fresh ones I usually make. He asked for them again for Fathers day breakfast. I'm thinking an empty plate said it all..LOL

How To Make ~ gouda smothered hashbrowns ~

  • 1
    I use my iron skillet for these, but you can use any non stick skillet. First, saute onions and pepper in a small amount of oil, until soft but not browned. In a medium bowl, mix hashbrowns with seasoning, onion and peppers. Cover bottom of skillet with oil, heat over med high, and once hot, take a palm full of potato mixture and gently squeeze together and add to hot oil, repeat with remaining potatoes. Using a spatula, flatten each patties and cook until golden. Carefully flip to other side, adding more oil if needed. Flatten again, this helps them stick together. Once the other side is golden, add cheese to each patty, cover and serve when cheese has melted.

    I served with, sausage patties, eggs and an everything bagel. Hubby loved the hashbrowns. I did too...much less messier than fresh.
