A big shout out to the Shantina for this product recommendation, Golden Grill Hashbrowns. They are freeze-dried (don’t give up yet) so they don’t take up freezer space. Simply add boiling water, let sit 12 minutes and then pan fry. They are fabulous and taste the same as frozen. They are a blend of hearty shreds and specially combined seasoned potatoes that can be served in loose shred or patty format. They have a faster grill time and higher yield. No artificial colours or flavour. The carton says it serves 7 but it really serves 4 – all that fresh air works up an appetite! I found them at Costco.
