Hashbrowns

hashbrowns

They’re a breakfast staple, and they can also be a delicious snack or side dish. But have you ever thought about turning them into bite-sized appetizers? I am using frozen shredded hashbrowns for this recipe but you can also use fresh or shred your own.

Bacon

Bacon makes everything better, am I right? I like to use regular center-cut bacon for this recipe, but you could also use turkey bacon or even leave it out if you’re looking to make a vegetarian version.

Sour Cream

I’m using a light sour cream to save on calories, but you can use regular or even Greek yogurt. The sour cream is going to help hold these together and give them a creamy texture.

Cheese

I’m using sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use any type of cheese that you like. You could even mix in some different cheeses for a fun twist.

Egg

The egg is going to help bind everything together. I like to use 1 whole egg, but you could also just use egg whites if you’re looking to cut back on the calories.

Seasoning/Chives

I’m using a simple seasoning of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. You can adjust the amount of each to taste. I am also using chopped chives to add a little extra flavor and color. You can use fresh or dried chives or leave them out completely if you don’t want to use them.

Notes

  • When using frozen hash browns, you will want to thaw them out for at least 30 -45 minutes in advance to make them easier to roll.

  • If you want to add even more to your breakfast bites try adding some diced onions, diced tomatoes, or a few diced jalapenos if you want a little kick.

  • If you want to add a really pleasing visual when serving, top them off with some finely chopped parsley and add grated cheese such as parmesan.

FAQ

HOW DO YOU MAKE HASHBROWNS STICK TOGETHER?

The sour cream and egg help to bind everything together. If your hash brown bites seem too dry, you can add a little bit more sour cream or egg until they reach the desired consistency. It’s also best to allow your hashbrowns to thaw and remove any excess moisture with a paper towel before starting.

DO I HAVE TO USE AN AIR FRYER?

Nope! You can make these hash brown bites in the oven or even in a frying pan on the stove. If you’re using the stove, just cook them over medium heat with a little bit of oil or salted butter until they’re golden brown and cooked through. If you are using the oven, preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook them on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.

CAN THESE BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! These hashbrown bites can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours. You can also freeze hashbrown bites and cook them when ready using an air fryer or preheated oven.

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO REHEAT THESE?

The best way to reheat these hashbrown bites is in the air fryer or oven. If you’re reheating them in the oven, just preheat oven to 375 degrees and place them on a baking sheet. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until warmed through. If you’re reheating them in the air fryer, heat them at 375 for 15-20 minutes, turning once halfway through.
