Awful Photo : Delicious Food!
Put together the recipe in the dark of night? Get gross lighting photos.
Make something monotone and not very colorful? Get really boring blah photos.
BUT make this recipe? And enjoy crispy crunchy cheesy hash brown potatoes that will knock your socks off.
Andy was going to make these for our company but after we realized how much dairy was involved… he opted for something more simple - our friends don't do very much dairy.
My family coming for brunch - bring on the dairy. I made these ahead of time and used my trust timed oven. I did have to crank the heat at the end to ensure some crispiness since the other items in the oven required some comprise on temperature.
These I will most certainly do again. SO much easier than trying to make them in the fry pan in tiny batches getting spattered with oil. Next time maybe some onion… oh… yes… onion!
