Hungry Jack Hash Browns

Hungry Jack Hash Browns

Sometimes the simplest foods are the tastiest. Take hashbrowns, for example. They’re really just potatoes fried in oil, perhaps with a little bit of salt and pepper for seasoning. But they’re just so darn good. I can’t think of many things better than starting the day off with a plate of perfectly cooked hashbrowns. That’s why I was so excited when I had the opportunity to try Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrown Potatoes.

Made from 100 percent Idaho® potatoes, Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes come fully cooked and seasoned and require no refrigeration. In just four easy steps, you can prepare tasty, restaurant-quality hashbrowns in approximately 15 minutes.

Yes, you read that right–these potatoes are pre-cooked and already seasoned for you. I will admit, I was a little bit skeptical at first. I’ve never seen hashbrowns that came in a shelf-stable box like this. So, fully prepared to be disappointed, I added hot tap water to the carton and let it stand for 12 minutes, as instructed. I heated olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cooked the hashbrowns until just this side of burnt (hey, I like them that way!). Upon tasting Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrown Potatoes, my skepticism gave way to satisfaction–these are really good!

Of course, one of the other great things about hashbrown potatoes is that you can use them in so many different recipes. The Hungry Jack website has a lot of really great meal ideas and one that stood out to me was the Zucchini Parmesan Cakes. I made them for dinner over the weekend and my husband and I were not disappointed. I was glad to see that Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrown Potatoes work well in recipes because with all the hashbrown recipes I have on hand, I know I’ll want to keep my pantry fully stocked! That’s what’s great about these–they’re not refrigerated so you don’t have to worry about them going bad in a few weeks and they’re not frozen so you don’t have to worry about freezer burn either. Now you can have hashbrowns whenever you like!

Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes are a budget-friendly, quick and easy solution to make a special and delicious family meal. Here are some ideas:

  • Use as a side dish with chicken, sausage, burgers, roast pork or
  • any meat and gravy
  • Prepare breakfast for dinner, also known as “brinner”
  • Make a hashbrown omelet filled with cheese and tomatoes
  • Jazz up your hashbrowns with veggies, cheese and spices

One carton makes a pound of potatoes, which is 6 servings. The price for this? Only $1.79!

Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrown Potatoes are available nationwide at major grocery store retailers, such as Walmart, H-E-B, Safeway, Albertsons, Kroger, Publix, Food Lion, Super Target and other retailers.

  50. I like to make up a batch of crispy hash browns, cool them off a bit, press into a pie plate, and use them as the crust for quiche. Delicious! Thanks.

  51. I like to fry them in butter (so healthy!) to make them crispy and sprinkled with salt and pepper. My really guilty hashbrown pleasure is to top them with sausage gravy. Yum!

  53. I like my hash browns, with oil, salt, seasoning, onions, and light cheese. Thanks!

All done in a cast iron dutch oven and cooked on hot coals.. we add eggs, peppers, (pre cooked ham, or bacon) onion, peppers, and a bag of hash browns.. mixed together.. cover and cook over hot coals.

  81. I’ve never made hash browns at home, so I don’t have a favorite recipe. I do like to eat them with breakfast at diners though, they come with my Moons Over My Hammy from Denny’s and I salt em and chow down… It’d be interesting to try making some at home sometime.

  82. I boil the potatoes first, then grate them (leaving most of the skin on) into a hot skillet, add chopped onions and green peppers, salt and pepper, and fry until dark and crispy.

  83. I just saw this at the grocery store today and wondered about them. When Hubby makes himself dinner occasionally it is usually breakfast food. He loves hash browns but he never makes them fresh and he has trouble with frozen ones – this might be good for him!

    My favorite way to eat hashbrowns it to flatten them kind of like a pancake and get them crispy on both sides, yummy!!!

  84. my favorite hash brown recipe is in a mexican style casserole

  91. I like to fry hash browns with chopped green peppers & onions to go with my eggs and bacon.

  92. I use a box of dried hashbrowns, a can of Libby’s canned roast beef (do not drain), a pinch of celery seed, some diced onions and salt and pepper. You cook/brown the hashbrowns as directed. When almost done, stir in the roast beef (breaking up) and onions. Add seasonigs.
    This was originally a camping recipe, but I make it at home all the time. We all love it!

    I love to have my hashbrowns topped with melted cheese and a spoonful of Salsa!

  102. Our family grew up with eggs and hash browns so I would say that I, too, would cook the hash browns until crunchy (not too burnt) and add some eggs to the mix. Of course, we would have to splurge and have some biscuits too, right?

  103. i really do not have one,but some of the ones listed sound yummy

  117. Aaron B from IL on

    My favorite hash brown recipe is something called morning mix-up. It is basically a bunch of breakfast stuff tossed in a pan. I usually prepare it with hashbrowns, onions, sausage or ham, and then you mix raw eggs in and scramble the whole bunch together. Finally it is topped with a good sharp cheddar cheese.

  118. I like to cook bacon and hash browns with onions in separate pans when done drain grease from bacon and add to hash browns and pour 2 eggs beaten on top and cook till done.
