    I eat these from time to time and they are pretty good. I keep some in the pantry just in case I get a hankering for hashbrowns.

    A little dehydrated onion, a clove of garlic, and some olive oil. Or some ramps if you're lucky!

    I buy the Hungry Jack brand for home consumption. They are rehydrated with boiling water, but then they are to be sauteed in oil over high heat to brown them, else you're just eating boiled grated potatoes. Not very palatable. Trust me, you want that caramelization.

    Other major downsides: unseasoned, so S&P + Heinz is desperately needed, and ketchup is v. heavy; it has no fat so caloric density is low to begin with; and they require a lot of water (+ fuel to boil the water) to rehydrate.

    That's what I forgot to add, a little Sazón!

    I never heard of saz'on, so good ole Google says it's a Spanish seasoning with a distinctive savory taste with a hint of brown , red hue.a garlicky spice, salt,cumin, coriander, garlic and oregano. I'm gonna have to put that on the grocery list.

    The link that TexasBob gave says hot tap water is used to rehydrate 140degrees. Not much fuel used to heat to that temp. Use only enough water to rehydrate them.

    I use it on hash browns, home fries, and I like it on fried pierogis too. It'll be by the Goya products in the store. These two are both good.

    My brother had another brand that was good too but I don't remember the name.

    I give them extra time to re-hydrate and drain any excess water (usually very little) then fry them crispy. More fragile than frozen or fresh so be gentle. To be honest I have only made them once on a car camping trip but many times at home. Salt, pepper and a little ketchup - breakfast heaven !!!!

    That's the the better one my brother recommended.

    So why buy it if it's simple?

    Not at all sure why the OP had to go to Amazon and link to a case of hash browns.
    These things have been sitting on the shelf at any decent grocery store since forever.
    That said, from a backpacking standpoint, instant Mashed Potatoes are much easier to prepare.

    Not at all sure why you want to quash his burgeoning interest? Were your potatoes cold this morning? Some people like to actually cook while backpacking.

    I like mashed potatoes as an appetizer before backpacker dinner or as part of shepherd's pie. Not particularly a breakfast food for me though. Now a nice plate of olive oil crisped and seasoned hash browns, maybe a bagel and an orange even along with a cup or two of hot tea, I might not roll out of camp until 11!

    , got me thinking. You take the same mashed potatoes and form little cakes ,ya know olive oil crisped and seasoned fried potato cakes. Some precooked bacon and ova easy freeze dried eggs, shoot you might not leave camp until noon!
