this recipe was awful, i think that the potatoes should have been cooked, cooled and then shredded. my potatoes were still hard. I also think there were too many eggs!

Very good! I used two large pans and baked them at 350 for an hour then 400 degrees for 10 min. Great taste, will make it again for sure.

This potato loaf is wonderful for breakfast. Just slice off the number of pieces you need and fry or broil. YUM! I did cut the olive oil in half because it seemed a little greasy the first time ...

FYI: For those of you concerned with the potatoes turning brown, add water to the bowl of your food processor before grating. Just grate directly into the water.

This was really good, nice and oniony. Also really easy to make since I used the bags of already grated potatos you can find in the meat section of the grocery store.

My family and guests thought this recipe was delicious. Many comments about how good it was, including a good review from my picky son-in-law. I grated the potatoes and cheese in my food process...

This is good stuff. Unfortunately, I had to substitute onion powder for the onion on account of a picky hubby, but it was still good. I found it needed a little longer than the time called for....

I love this recipe. I added a little sour cream to the mix. We use this as our morning hashbrowns as well. Make them up the day before and heat them in the morning, they are great.
