    Should the hash browns be thawed before baking?

    1. Granny Fedder says

      No, whenever I use frozen hash browns I never thaw them.

    2. Cheryl says

      I just made this last night. I used frozen hash browns turned out perfect. I did cook it a little longer covered 30 min then took cover off put cheese on and returned to oven for 10 min.

    3. Chellsea says

      I’m currently making this dish.
      I let it bake covered for 30 mins & when I removed the foil covering the dish was only “warm”. I’m thinking the hashbrowns should have been thawed before making this because mine is back in the oven, uncovered baking for another 30 mins at least I would think… Hoping it’s tasty otherwise I’m left hungry and a bit annoyed.
      This recipe needs a few more specifications.

  2. CHILLY SAUCE says

    Add sliced thin potatoes instead of hashbrowns

    1. Fred says

      Sounds even better, somehow I doubt grandpa had frozen ore-ida hash browns on hand.

  3. Denise says

    I use tators tots on top.

  4. William Krueger says

    Tomorrow’s dinner we used to call it Tater Tot Pie.
