*1/4 cup oil

*3/4 cup onion, diced

*1 26-oz. bag frozen

shredded hash

browns, unthawed but


*1 tsp. salt

*1/2 tsp. pepper

*1/4 cup fresh parsley,


*1 cup Swiss cheese,



1. Heat oil in an electric skillet at 275 or use a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until onion is limp and begins to color.

2. Take the bag of frozen hash browns and give it a good whack on a hard surface to loosen the hash browns; you don't want any clumps of frozen potatoes. Add the potatoes, salt, pepper, and parsley and mix. Take a spatula and press the potato mixture firmly into the bottom of the skillet, making a dense patty.

3. Increase to medium-high, cover, and cook potatoes for 5-8 minutes or until they turn deep golden brown on the bottom. Don't stir while they are cooking. Turn potatoes, in sections at a time, pat down again firmly, cover and continue cooking until the bottom is a deep golden brown. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and continue cooking, uncovered, until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges and serve.
