Trader Joe's Hashbrowns

These are frozen hashbrown patties, in size and shape very much like what McDonald's includes in many of their breakfasts.

I had hoped that they might taste as good as those, in addition to physically resembling them. They don't. They border on flavorless.

What's more, even after several tries, I could not get the texture to come out right--crispy on the outside, flaky on the inside. They always ended up on the soggy-greasy side.

All in all, a big disappointment.

Will I buy it again? 



  1. Try baking them in the oven at 405 degrees F for 14 minutes, then flip them over and bake at 415 degrees F for another 14 minutes. They seem to bake quite well this way.

    1. Agreed, I always bake and flip and they turn out great!

  2. oh i liked them!!! i am going to review them soon. i cooked them in a pan - a bit of olive oil and about 4 mins per side. i seasoned with just salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. oh man, now that i type about them i am hungry for them...
