Oven Hash Browns for a Crowd of 24
Forget your cast iron skillet (at least for hash browns!) You can easily make these in the oven, just like your bacon, and they will come out golden brown and crunchy! You can even bake them at the same time as your bacon. This will free you up for more fun tasks. (Like making a quick and delicious fruit salad.)
LWhen cooking potatoes, there’s one thing you need to consider. Potatoes need a lot of seasoning to taste their best. So, we’re going to season them with some garlic powder, some seasoned salt (nope, it doesn’t contain any MSG) and some butter (everything’s better with butter).
They’re extra easy. Give them a try today!
NOTE: These are thinner and crispy. If you like thicker hash browns, double the ingredients and bake for an additional 10 – 15 minutes.
These wonderful, crunchy, golden brown hash browns can be baking in the same oven as your bacon, saving you time and effort. Best of all - they taste great! Try them today for breakfast (or dinner!)

Correction to my last comment. I meant cooked on a roaster over.
I’ve never tried that.
Can these be cooked on a toaster oven?
I’ve never tried Liz. Let us know if you do.
Do you have any experience with making these in advance, freezing or refrigerating and then heating back up and hopefully maintaining their crispiness? We are doing a brunch for a casual evening wedding reception and would like to have as much premade as possible! I’d like to make a pan or two in steam pans for chafing dishes, so probably make a little thicker than what your photo shows.
I would definitely make thicker than what the recipe/photo shows. That’s my preference too. I have never tried freezing and re-heating. You might consider the oven roasted potatoes or the Hawaiian Mac Salad. Both can be made in advance and I’ve received numerous compliments and many folks take seconds.
Fantastic! Great with the Aloha Dreams large group pizza. Jill
Do you use a bag of frozen hash browns or a bag of fresh hash browns?
Is the cheese necessary?
I generally thaw the hash browns in the refrigerator so they’ll cook evenly. The cheese is not necessary. Feel free to leave it out.
Fantastic spuds! Served these at a youth breakfast and the kids loved ’em. Thank you for all the group recipes your posting.
