Reviews for Colby Hash Browns
"great side dish!! Made this for our family cook out. I broiled the potatoes a little bit to crisp the tops up. Really good! Will make again. The leftovers will make great potato cakes!"
"Another recipe that I always return too."
"easy, good recipe."
"I've made this plenty of times. It is delicious!"
"This wasn't bad, but not my favorite cheesy hashbrown recipe. I agree with the reviewer who said the potatoes should be thawed first, and also about it being too salty. Next time I would definitely skip the added salt."
"We've had this recipe several times. It's easy and tasty.I usually skip heating the mixture in a skillet because I'm lazy. It's also good with cheddar cheese or with diced onion added in. Yum!"
"Hey, loridillon! This was not published as a vegetarian dish! It was a go-along to meat loaf in a full meal. My husband raved about it and gave it 5 stars. I thought it was good but just a tad too salty, as I used pre-shredded Colby cheese for convenience, and I think those pre-shredded cheeses are saltier than when you shred block cheese. If I use the pre-shedded again, I'll leave out the 1 teaspoon of salt. Also, the recipe doesn't say to do so, but I think the hash browns should be thawed and the excess water pressed out of them. See how that works."
"So use vegetable broth, how hard is that?"
"Once again, a vegetarian recipe with beef broth in it. Not the best way to impress us vegetarians, TOH."
