Would have liked this better if the hash browns crisped/browned on the inside during the first 15 mins of cooking, and on the underside during the last 20 mins of cooking. These turned out kind of bland but not that bad. My husband even ate 2 and he's picky!

A bit labor intensive, but worth the trouble when you have the time, (especially if you're craving ham, which is tough to work into a renal diet). Soaking frozen hash browns turned out to be a great tip; I now prepare them as a side for scrambled eggs & omelettes every once in a while

HI I JUST WANTED TO GET SOMETHING CLEAR ON A LOW SALT, LOW OXALATE DIET THAT MY HUSBAND WITH KIDNEY DISEASE IS ON. THE INFO., WE GOT LISTED WHITE POTATOES AS HIGH IN OXALATE AND A MODERATOR COMMENTED THAT WHITE POTATOES ARE 0 OXALATE. THIS IS 1 REASON I AM GOING ALMOST NUTS COOKING A WHOLE NEW WAY FOR MY HUSBAND. Dietitian Comment:Potatoes are considered high in oxalate with 27 mg oxalate for 100 grams (3-1/2 ounces).

We liked these. I doubled the black pepper, and we added Tabasco at the table.

These were good but a little bland. I didn't use any cheese so I don't know if that makes a difference, but it could use more spices. I used 1 lb russet potato which I grated. I ended up with enough potato for 9 or 10 but only enough egg for 7. Maybe using sausage instead of ham caused that.

My mom loved these. She has no teeth so it worked very well for her. She even took them as a snack for her dialysis treatment.

Someone asked for a vegetarian choice to substitute ham. Why not mushrooms? Moderator comment: Mushrooms are a great addition to replace the ham because they have a chewy texture similar to meat. The protein content will be 1 gram lower, phosphorus 129 mg and potassium increases to 318 mg with 1/2 cup mushroom pieces instead of ham.

I thought potatoes were high oxalate. If on a low sodium and low oxalate diet, should this potatoe recipe be avoided, or does the 4hr soak remedy that concern, or are potatoes not that high of oxalate? Moderator Comment: Sweet potatoes contain 56 mg oxalate per 100 gram serving. White potates have 0 mg oxalate so this should not be a concern.

Sounds delicious! What's the best way to soak the hash browns? How much water? Moderator: Great question! Researchers recommend 10 times more water than potatoes, so 1 cup of potatoes requires 10 cups of water. See the DaVita.com article 'Lowering potassium in potatoes' to read about what the researchers did to reduce potassium in hash browns and how much difference it makes. http://www.davita.com/diet-and-nutrition/diet-basics/lowering-potassium-in-potatoes/a/2126.

Haven't tried this one, but what about smoked salmon? Moderator response: Smoked salmon is much higher in sodium so would not be a good substitute in this recipe.
