Maybe gonna try 2 eggs next time so they hold together better. But flavor and everything else was good.

Tastes great. Wish they held together better. Maybe add some flour and another egg next time.

I added a little bit of baking powder. I add enough egg to make it loose and enough flower to make patties for coking. Bacon fat is best for cooking. You could use powdered onion if you wish.

The first batch I made fell right apart in the pan so I added some gluten free Bisquick to the mixture and the second batch did a lot better. Then I read the comments and decided cheddar cheese sounded good so I added that into the third batch and those did even better!

Fabulous with a finely chopped garlic clove added and a bit of shredded cheese ton give it more stick togetherness.

I used a round egg ring to keep them from falling apart and it worked great!

I made them but they just fell apart, not sure what I did wrong. They tasted okay though.

I made these in a pancake maker so they didn't get crispie like hash browns, more like potato pancakes, but they were delicous!

I really like this recipe. It's good to do something with leftover mashed taters, though I altered it a little. I make the patties then roll them in panko bread crumbs, you can alter this by adding any seasoning you would like to the breadcrumbs, Keep on cooking folks your great!

Brown them up really good. They're best when the outside gets crispy. I just made them for the second time. Love this recipe!

Does this recipe end up making hash browns like the ones served at McDonalds? (I love those.)

I grew up eating these. We also used leftover rice instead of potatoes. Just salt and pepper to taste.

I loved this!! I always tried to make mashed potatoes into hash browns and always ended up with a soupy gross, mess. I am so glad I found this recipe. I do agree that these do strongly resemble pancakes, and I absolutely loved it! I skipped on the onion so I could share it with my 9month old daughter, who loved them as well. Awesome recipe and so simple to do!

My mom used to serve these as a side at dinner when we had left over mashed potatoes. I used to deliberately peel more potatoes than necessary to insure we ended up with these the next night. Delicious!

Yummy, but not hash browns. What you are describing here are simple old-fashioned Irish potato pancakes, which are extremely common in the U.S., especially in the Eastern and Midwestern areas. I make these potato pancakes all the time, and depending on the person, they are usually served with either applesauce or ketchup.

Add crumbled bacon and shredded Chedder cheese. This makes a really great addition.

Very boring, simplistic and highly uninteresting. Predicable yet not correct.
