Janet you mentioned something that is IMO very important and not previously mentioned in this topic:
Turn your hash browns only once!
I doubt the post reply about hash browns in greasy spoons being par cooked.
McDonalds DOES partially cook their fries and freezes them, I doubt that's the case with packaged hash brown potatoes of any kind. The only kind of hash browns you can buy frozen are basically just shredded potatoes that have been quick flash frozen, not par boiled, just frozen as they are. They are OK (not as flavorful as freshly grated). I'm gonna try and get better at cooking them to a nice golden brown.
lol, I blames my non-stick pan.
