      I have to confess I love a McDonald’s hash brown. I’ve tried most of the supermarket own brands and some are okay. I recently tried the Aldi Oakhurst McDonald’s dupes, OMG they are lovely, as near to MC’D’s as you’ll get,  though quite expensive for what they are at £1,99 for 10. What’s your favourite?

        I like a hash brown as much as the next man but I find the McDonald’s ones taste a little vinegary. It’s probably just me.

          I buy MC’ain’s mostly  or when shopping in Asda, I find their own brand better than other own brand ones.

            Tesco every time, decent thickness unlike the others.  Morrisons also used to use them in their own brand version but switched to the cheaper ones Asda etc. use.

                  Yes Mike, they are perfect in the air fryer, I gave them around 14 mins at 200c.

                        As above, air fryer is great for them, ideally I’d oven bake them but if I’m doing a greasy breakfast they go in the (dare I say it?) deep fat fryer (vegetable oil not fat!) 😮

                        Frying pan is no good as hash browns nowadays tend to go all mushy.

                          I don’t have a deep fat fryer, but if you did the Aldi MC’D’s dupes in one they’d be perfect, all they’d need is the little grease proof bag wrapper.

                              I used to have the Asda ones when we had delivery, they still deliver but I don’t have it, I digress, sorry, anyway, their hashbrowns in the air fryer were fine, but left me wanting McDo’s.

                              Going to Aldi today!

                                I’ll pop into Aldi tomorrow night and grab a bag, I may be taking my Autistic son home, he’s been here 7 weeks!, 1 week cat sitting and the rest helping me with the broken finger etc..  I need to do a Tesco shop for next week, there’s a local one up the road but has none of my usual things so it’s off to Durham to stock up.

                                  My wife was feeling very poorly this morning so I took breakfast up to her. Bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, hash brown and tomatoes. Just got to get the camping stove up there now so she can cook it for me.
