Ingredients

1
(1 lb. 4-oz.) pkg. refrigerated hash-brown potatoes
6
oz. (1 1/2 cups) finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2
cup chopped green onions
1/4
cup chopped roasted red bell peppers (from a jar), if desired
1/2
teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4
teaspoon garlic-pepper blend

  • 1 Heat closed contact grill for 5 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well.
  • 3 When grill is heated, for each patty, measure generous 1/2 cup potato mixture; place directly on bottom grill surface. (Each mound will be about 2 inches high. If necessary, cook 3 patties at a time.) Close grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until patties are golden brown and crisp.

Expert Tips

We recommend that you scoop the mounds of potato mixture directly on the grill so that the patties are compact and hold together. The top of the grill will compress the mixture, then help to cook it evenly.

For Hot Pepper Hash Brown Patties, use hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese instead of the Cheddar and omit the roasted bell peppers.

These tasty potatoes are a perfect side dish for breakfast or supper. Be sure to serve condiments such as sour cream, salsa and ketchup with the patties.
