What are the Best Potatoes for Hashbrown Potatoes?
I used a 28 oz. bag of Heinz® Ore-Ida® Potatoes O’Brien with Onions and Peppers. (Potatoes O’Brien, if you’re unfamiliar, is the name for a potato dish that includes potatoes and peppers.)
I love the convenience of using pre-cut potatoes for my hashbrowns. It just makes everything so much easier and faster!
Ingredients for Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes
These oh-so-cheesy hashbrown potatoes contain good, simple ingredients:
- Heinz® Ore-Ida® Potatoes O’Brien with Onions and Peppers
- Spicy pork sausage (or medium or mild if that’s your speed)
- 4 eggs (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion (because I like a little extra onion)
… and that’s it. Oh yeah… and a sprinkle of cheese (if not, they’d just be plain hashbrown potatoes!). Just about 1/2 a cup of cheese is perfect for this big batch of meat and potato deliciousness!
Add some salsa if you’re so inclined… it adds a Tex-Mex flair and some more spice that will leave you begging for more.
