Stuffed Hash Browns

Ever since we met, my husband has made me hash browns with bacon, pepper jack and sour cream. We share it when we have guests, too. —Annie Ciszak Pazar, Anchorage, Alaska

    Yum! So many possibilities. Could even put some scrambled eggs inside, or top with a fried egg and salsa. Delicious!

    Love this recipe! Have actually made it both in our waffle maker and our Panini press which made them very crispy and delicious!

    What a great idea. These were great. I added a little green pepper to the potatoes along with the onions. Also sprinkled a little cheese on top of hash browns just before removing to plate. Mixed some salsa with the sour cream for topping. Delicious! Thank you for a great recipe.

    What a delicious dish! This will be one that I make for our Christmas morning brunch! You can change up the cheese flavors or add crumbled cooked sausage instead of (or along with ) the bacon! MMMMM good!

    Potatoes, onions and cheese, yeah these were great! I think they would also be good with some peppers added in with the potatoes. I forgot to buy the refrigerated potatoes when I went to the store so I just shredded up some potatoes and it worked fine. This will be a regular on my menus!

    I prepared this for our breakfast this morning and we both cleaned our plates. Delicious. Because it was breakfast, I omitted the sour cream and green onions but loved the onions in the potatoes. I may add more next time. A five star recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

    I made these potatoes and they were delicious! The end result reminded me of an omelet! I didn't have shredded hash browns, so I shredded the frozen ones in my food processor. I did use bacon, but made the crispy bacon recipe which I crumbled to use for the filling! I used Monterey-Jack as I didn't have pepper-jack cheese and just ate the taters sans toppings!

    My daughter (age 12) gave this recipe an "A " and only asked for one substitution next time - to use another cheese other than the pepper jack (this was a little spicy for her). I used a 30 oz. bag of thawed frozen hashbrowns and that yielded 6 servings. At 8 minutes each, one at a time, they were a bit time consuming to prepare, but the outcome was worth it. We will make these again.

    This so delicious! I had a little trouble with the potatoes sticking. My hubby loved them and wanted seconds.

    My family loves to do breakfast for supper & this recipe is now a new favorite! I used Colby Jack cheese instead of the pepper jack but it was still delicious! I will definitely make this again!
