What Hash Brown Potatoes Can I Use in Parmesan Baked Hash Browns?
You can use any frozen hash brown potatoes to make frozen hash browns in the oven. The Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns (brand) are dry out of the package saving a step. (This recipe is not sponsored by Simply Potatoes, I just really like their products!)
You can find them near the eggs in your grocery store. If you use frozen hash browns, the trick is to dry them very well using a salad spinner to get the water off, or a clean dish towel to dry them. Press and press to get all the water out. This helps them crisp to a golden brown!
