McCain Hash Browns
Advantages: taste nice
Disadvantages: don't know
When I heard the name McCains I always thought of oven chips, but now they have a wide range of products.
I started buying McCains hash browns when my eldest daughter was quite young probably around 18 months - 2years. I used then as a quick easy meal with a couple of vegetable fingers for emergencies. As she grew up I didn't buy them for years but with times being hard I have started buying them again. Although I am not loyal to them and tend only to buy this brand when they are on offer.
Recently I bought a bag from Tesco as they were priced at just £1 for a 700 gram bag from the freezer section.
The hash browns are advertised as using the finest shredded potato with a pinch of spice. (they are potato)
Other hash browns like Tesco's own have onion in but it suprised me that McCains don't - I just thought all hash browns did. Now I know why supermarkets own brand taste quite oniony compared to McCains.
I think these hash browns are tasty with just the right amount of spices and if cooked correctly are a little crispy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside, but that can easily change if they are overcooked.
Hash browns can be eaten any time of the day, some people like them for breakfast with sausage and beans which we sometimes do at a weekend. I find what is nice and filling when I am at work on a Saturday is 2 hash browns on a muffin (or barm cake whatever people call the bread thing) with a fried egg on top. Very filling.
These are best cooked from frozen and can be oven cooked, grilled or fried. I have never fried them but find that grilling or cooking them in the oven take around the same time - about 20 minutes.
Summary: nice potato
