Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 6-8
- 1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated plain hash brown potatoes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup grated onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup peanut oil
Place potatoes in large bowl and add remaining ingredients except for oil. Mix well until combined.
Heat half of the oil in large saucepan or skillet until a drop of water sizzles immediately when added to the oil. Drop the potato mixture by 1/3 cupfuls into the hot oil. Press down on the patties to make them about 1/2" thick.
Cook until browned on first side, about 4-6 minutes, then carefully turn and cook until browned on second side, about another 5 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.
Repeat with remaining oil and remaining potato mixture. You can keep these hot in a 250 degrees F oven until they are all fried. Serve with applesauce, or with sour cream and chopped green onions.
