"These are so great! I love finding another purpose for my waffle iron! These are a HUGE hit with my boys. The waffle iron gives you amazing crispiness, which is so hard to do at home with frozen hash browns. We like to make these into sandwiches with the hash browns as the bread. YUM!"

"This was sooo good! I never made a waffle-type dish with hash browns before, and it was a bit different, but I made it for a midday recipe, and when dinner came, all we wanted were salads."
