    These are excellent. I make them once or twice a month. I usually fry bacon and/or sausage first then fry the potato cakes in the grease (with a little oil added). If fixing for breakfast I serve with a fried egg over top.

    These are great! Instead of thawed hash browns I used a bag of "Simply Potatoes." I used green onions and dried parsley, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. These are excellent topped with applesauce. My husband and my daughter loved them.
