  1. I love the way the hashbrowns were used to make a crust, LOVE IT!! ♥

  2. Looks amazing! What’s the best time & temp to heat up from frozen? And do you let it thaw first?

    • Kim, if you are cooking frozen no need to thaw, but it will take longer to cook through. Keep an eye on it at the 40 minute mark so it doesn’t burn, however.

      One thing Hubby suggested when I made it (again) last week if to spray the hash browns with oil when that crust cooks. I have yet to do so, but I think it may be a good idea. It will make the crust crispier, which may be more texturally appealing if you are freezing (the hash brown crust can be rather soft).

  3. To make ahead and freeze, your instructions state to make the crust, fill , bake and allow to cool completely. Cover with aluminum foil and mark baking instructions on the foil.
    How does the crust get crisped if you put the filling in it and then bake? Also, are the baking instructions just to heat through?

    • Hi Cathie,

      You follow all the instructions including baking, and then cover up and freeze. You will reheat thoroughly. Wow, I just reread what I wrote and it is a mess. I will rewrite that for clarification.

      As far as a crispy crust… Hubby has me bake the crust part for 20 minutes, not 15 minutes as he likes a crispy crust. I also coat it with a fine layer of oil on the outside before baking the crust. Watch it though – the top will start to burn, not brown as you would think it would. The crust on this is never really crispy like you’d think of well done hash browns though. More like firm.

      Another note: I have also used roll sausage – cooking completely as crumbly meat before adding it to this recipe. I actually prefer the little brown and serve type links in this, but in a pinch (in other words when I only have roll in the fridge) that works too as a substitute.

      Ann
