Cheesy Hash Brown Patties

Cheesy Hash Brown Patties are perfect for breakfast and brunch! These crispy, cheesy rounds taste homemade but they are easy to make thanks to a special shortcut!

There’s a little breakfast joint down the street that serves the BEST cheesy hash brown patties. They are crispy, crunchy and cheesy all in one bite. Unfortunately, the restaurant is closed on Sundays… You know when I want hash browns? Sundays. Thus, I created this recipe so I could have my hash brown fix at home.

The problem with homemade hash browns is that its SO much work. You have to peel and shred potatoes before you even get to the good part. I used a shortcut in this recipe because well, I’m a little lazy in the morning and I bet most of you all feel the same.

The recipe calls for pre-shredded hash browns making this breakfast side super easy to prepare. The the potatoes are cut and seasoned for you so all you need to add is mozzarella cheese, onion, flour and eggs. Once your mixture combined, you will make patties (about 1/2 cup) and fry them in a skillet or non-stick frying pan. The whole process takes about 30 minutes – just long enough to work up an appetite.

*The recipe calls for frying in vegetable oil but coconut oil works just as well.

I serve these hash brown patties with eggs and bacon. Oh, and don’t forget the ketchup and maple syrup. Am I the only one who eats hash browns with syrup? Of course, you can always get a little crazy and serve them with dinner – maybe with ham and collard greens. *sigh* I think I know what were having for Sunday supper now 😉
