PRO TIP: The people have spoken, and the organic and alternative grain trends are not going anywhere. Incorporate both for a creative signature side item! Hashbrowns are versatile for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Try shaking things up by adding your own spin to these, like portabella mushrooms, crab meat, lobster, or grated parmesan to make this into a signature “WOW” side!
