If you want a premade hash brown patty, then Trader Joe's currently has you covered. In fact, they've got you covered if you want one that is made for you or for one you can make yourself.
How much you are going to enjoy these is first going to depend on how you prepare these. If you want the crispiest hashbrown patties, then pull out your air fryer. There is little to no greasiness with them and you can really make these crispy.
How much you are going to enjoy these is also going to depend on your desire for seasoning. Out of the oven or air fryer, you are probably going to want to season these with salt. While there is a decent amount of sodium already in these I kept finding that I needed a dash of salt on these.
But these can be crisped to perfection for a frozen pre-made hashbrown patty.
The taste is greasier out of the oven and a bit gummier despite flipping them.
But overall, these are a solid choice for breakfast.
The following items would pair well with hash browns:
- Corned Beef
- Sour cream
- Hollandaise Sauce
The packaging on this product is fairly minimal. However, if you are only heating these up one at a time, then you'll still need to repackage these in a plastic bag or some other container as there is no way to reseal this.
This is wrapped in plastic and with thin cardboard packaging holding these hashbrowns together.

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 need a ziplock bag to keep the packaging fresh in the freezer.

YUP... I keep these in the freezer at all times... Your point on resealable packaging is correct and my only, slight complaint about this product..
Your “New American Eggs Benedict.” idea is great.. I think I will try that using a good TJ's salsa to top the eggs.. :o)
Let me know how it comes out!
Love hasbrowns in the airfryer. I do shredded hash browns in the waffle maker. Comes out really good!
