24 mini frozen breakfast hash browns, defrosted and stacked into groups of three
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 eggs, beaten to brush the latkes
½ cup (125 mL) Country Crock® Original Spread
1 cup (250 mL) sour cream and/or applesauce, for serving
Fresh chives, chopped for garnishing, optional
Take three hash brown discs and place them on top of each other. Using the flat bottom of a glass, press down to form the latke. Continue with the remaining hash browns until you have 8 latkes. Season each with salt and pepper. Gently brush the top of each latke with the egg wash. Using a spatula, gently flip the latkes over and egg wash the remaining side.
Add the Country Crock® Original Spread into a large skillet. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook the latke for 2-3 minutes then flip the latke and cook for another 2 minutes, until brown and crispy on both sides. Continue with the remaining latkes.
Place the crispy latkes on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any excess grease, then transfer to a rack.
Top with applesauce or sour cream and chives and enjoy!
