      Quick, easy & delicious - I used frozen hash-browns, thawed in hot water and allowed to drain well. After realizing I was using cubed hash-brown potatoes, I took it an additional step and diced in my manual food processor after all ingredients were together. Next time I'll use the shredded frozen hash-browns.
