The pros: Trader Joe’s Hashbrowns are easy, convenient, ready in 20 minutes without much effort.
The cons: Should come in a resealable package.
The verdict: For $1.99 these were tasty and easy to prepare as no work other than turning on an oven is really required. They are filling and only slightly greasy. They are more generous in size than what you would get if you were going to a fast food place like McDonalds. Since they are larger, you’ll probably want a fork and knife to consume these. I found them well seasoned, but some may want to add some salt to these. I’ll be keeping a package of these in the freezer for now on.

I disagree with the back of the package. I don’t think eggs always belong on the side of hashbrowns. In fact, here is my “New American Eggs Benedict.” You’ll need Trader Joe’s Hashbrowns, poached eggs (bring water to a simmer but not a boil, add 1-2 tbsp. of white vinegar and drop eggs in one at a time. Allow to simmer for 2-4 minutes depending on how firm you like your eggs), and Trader Joe’s Hollandaise Sauce with an optional sprinkle of paprika. It would have been better if I put some slices of bacon on it. Next time I’ll do that and add pictures:
Would I buy this again? Yes. If you have 2 of these it’s still a reasonable breakfast and you’ll feel full until lunch rolls around. These are tasty and go well with eggs and bacon. These are super convenient, they should reevaluate the packaging as you’ll probably not make 10 in one sitting and thus needing a ziplock bag to keep the packaging fresh in the freezer.
