Stuffing Hash Browns

Even the leftover haters in your house will love these!

Achieving fantastic taste with minimal effort, these stuffing hash browns are a must-try. After all, the only way to make mashed potatoes and stuffing better is to fry them in butter and oil, right?

Here’s how to make them.


  • Leftover mashed potatoes and stuffing (Forming the hash browns will be easier if the leftovers are chilled!)
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil


  1. Combine equal parts mashed potatoes and stuffing in a large bowl. Depending on the consistency of your potatoes, you may need to tweak the ratios slightly. The idea is to get the mixture to stick together and not crumble.
  2. Take a handful of the potato-stuffing mixture and roll it into a ball slightly smaller than a tennis ball. If the mixture is sticking to your hands, keep a bowl of cold water handy and wet your hands before each forming each ball.
  3. Using the palms of your hands, press the potato balls into a disk shape about 1 inch thick. Place the disks on parchment paper until you’re ready to fry them.
  4. Heat equal parts olive oil and butter in a frying pan on medium-high heat. You want the pan sizzling, but not so hot that the butter starts to burn.
  5. Gently place the disks into the hot oil and fry them for about 3 minutes on each side (or long enough that the centers are hot after cooking).

Serve your stuffing hash browns with leftover gravy or cranberry sauce!
