I have to say, I LOVE hash browns!!

And you know what? They can be even better on the grill when they are cooked correctly with just the right amount of “crispiness”. Hey, just because you are tailgating, doesn’t mean that you can’t start the day with an awesome breakfast! I firmly believe that great tailgating hash browns should have a bit of “crunch” when you bite into them. This is just my opinion, but when making hash brown potatoes, there needs to be a tasty, tender center that is wrapped with crispy brown potato exterior. But Tailgating Hash Browns are not TRULY perfect unless they are topped with delicious bacon, melted cheese, a pinch of spices, and loaded with melted butter.

SERIOUSLY… YUM! I have to admit, my mouth is watering just thinking about this recipe. 🙂

Well, before you slip and fall on my drool, let’s get to the D.I.Y. instructions …. I am going to show you how to make perfect Tailgating Hash Browns with Cheese and Bacon. Don’t worry… this is a pretty easy recipe to do, and all you need is a small baking tin, or an aluminum foil cake pan as a container to flawlessly pull this off.

NOTE: This is a great side dish to go with Ultimate Breakfast Sandwiches.


Cheesy Bacon Tailgating Hash Browns on the Grill Recipe:

INGREDIENTS:
Frozen Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes

Cooked & Crumbled Bacon
Shredded Cheese (Cheddar / American )
Spices (Salt, Pepper, Garlic) SHAMELESS PLUG… I use Tears of our Rivals.*
Butter (don’t use that fake stuff… use real butter made from cows)

ALSO NEEDED:
Non-Stick Grilling Spray
Aluminum Foil (tin foil).

When you are making grilled bacon tailgating hash browns, you first need to get a nice clean aluminum tin. A 9 x 9 brownie tin or cake pan works fantastic. Aluminum foil will work in a pinch.

Coat your container with non-stick grilling spray. (Alternately, you can melt some butter and make sure to coat the bottom and sides of your tin so the potatoes don’t stick.)

Preheat Grill to 400 F.

Layer the hash browned potatoes in container 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick.

Top with butter (1/4 to 1/2 stick…. mmmmmmm butter) and season to taste. (oh… did i mention how great Tailgate Master Spices are?)
