    I swear I'm about ready to loose my mind....

    I don't know about you but I like my Hashbrowns a little "crispy" on the top....

    Lately it seems to be a giant greasy glob of gunk...

    At Monroe TA it's gotten So Bad I just ask to substitute a cup of soup....

    Gosh any neighborhood greasy spoon can make Hashbrowns

    I make them at home once in a while.

    I tried making Sweet Potato hash browns when I was doing the Paleo thing but nobody liked them.

    Heh.

    You buy food at a truck stop and are surprised at the high prices and low quality.

    The unofficial definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    Add to that...you're doing it in Michigan.

    Well it's birchbarlow, we already know he's insane. :D

    Hey @birch I hear ya'.

    Sometimes they forget how hash BROWNS got their name.

    OK so I have no idea where the "hash" part came from but I do know they're supposed to be at least somewhat brown.

    i buy the hash brown patties at the supermarket.

    i can nuke them, but i prefer to bake'em in the oven instead. many brands out there, as my food budget allows, i buy the store brands.

    but yeah, when i ran the roads, i too could not always find good hash browns.

    i seemed to like the All American truck stop ones however.

    Actually the Omlette was pretty darn good but the Hashbrowns were pathetic...

    The waitress took em back and the Rework was exatly the same....

    I compromised and got a cup of Cheddar Broccoli soup that wasn't too bad

    It's hit or miss sometimes... actually I think alot of it has to do with the staff...

    TA and Petro are usually okay and I often have enough points to cover the meal cause that's usually where I end up Fueling most of the time.....

    Ma n PA joints are hit or miss some were awesome others the food was horrible..

    If it's a Denny's or IHOP well I know what they do good and stick with those few choices.....

    If I get stuck at one of our Terminals there's usually some decent carryout place or pizza joint that delivers and usually ya can chip in with another Driver and go halfers or just stash the leftovers for lunch tomorrow

    I am glad this thread came up. I am thinking about getting some hash browns at the Walmart.
    Would it be wrong to have an entire meal of just hash browns, I mean like 10 or 12 in a sitting?

    I've done it, sorta.

    I used to make homemade steak fries, starting with a knife and a bunch of potatoes.

    They're excellent.

    But I had to stop doing it when Mrs Duck started getting fat. :(

    I used to get the canned sliced potatoes and fry them up. Excellent for a lazy snack.

    For hashbrowns???? That's the only reason I use grater.otherwise I'll chop everything with a knife.I have a knife set that cuts thru fruits and veggies real slick but for hashbrowns i never have used a knife.
