    Opened up this post and expected something really cool for the new year and got this. What a joke. Please tell me you are joking. This is the kind of thing that had me cancelling your magazine a while back. Who on earth is running southern Living any more?

    Yummy comfort food with eggs and English muffins with strawberry jam for supper.

    I agree with the other reviewer.... lighten up. Sometimes it is just nice to have a different spin on an ordinary food. And, simple is good. Sometimes I get tired of a long list of ingredients, too many steps, etc. I wouldn't have thought to put cheese on top. But, it makes a great side for breakfast or dinner. I look forward to trying it. I know my kids will love it.

    Okay, wait... let me get this straight... this "recipe" is worthy of posting? Really? Frozen hash browns with American cheese? Come on. There should be an option for no stars. I've never made this and wouldn't even dream of it. Seriously. I'm done with myrecipes.com. Don't they even look at what they're posting?!

    I agree, I'm embarassed for them. I saw the picture and wanted to see the recipe because I thought it couldn't possibly be what it looked like. Wrong! They can't think anyone would buy their magazine based on a recipe like this?????? Embarassing.

    Why all the bad posts? If you want real hash browns, peel some potatoes!!

    I have not made this so called recipe. I am surprised that anything like this would be posted for the whole World to see.

    Lighten up, people! Not all the recipes need to be gourmet.

    American cheese?? You needed to write a recipe for this? I get comfort food, but please give us innovative updates on comfort food standards. I would be laughed out of my house if I served this, especially if I proclaimed that it came from a recipe. So what wine would you recommend goes with this? A 40 oz, perhaps?

    I opened this up hoping to find out how to make homemade hash browns nice a crispy. Haha frozen hash browns and a slice of American cheese. Maybe tomorrow you'll show us how to make macaroni from a box mix.

    I don't have time every night to cook elaborate, many-ingredient recipes. I love recipes using few ingredients or ones that "tweak" a purchased item. That's why I also love Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Recipes.

    How stupid is this? A six year old can do this. People learn to cook.

    The negative reviews are sad. I just sent this recipe to my husband to print off and can't wait to try it. What are a few extra steps, if you have the time to do them. If you don't, then don't complain. We are both disabled, and have a very low income, so the potatoes we get from our Food Bank each month, will work great in this recipe. To all that gave positive feed backs, thanks for starting our New Year on a great note. We hope your New Year will be as bright as your attitude.

    Sorry, pathetic! I agree with many others here! American "cheese"??? So lame. "People, learn to cook!" great line!

    This is a fine recipe - a recipe is instructions on how to prepare food which this one does. Is everyone aware that they are welcome to ignore recipes for foods they have no interest in eating and/or preparing....? For those who wish they read recipes closer with a more discerning eye, I often wish they did this very thing for reviews; I have seen many more rank reviews than recipes on this site.

    What a bunch of snobs! So what if it's easy and quick. Sometimes we all can't take the time to do it from scratch-still gotta eat!!!

  • seaside725 Posted: 08/06/13

    Agree. Sometimes we need something quick, easy and tasty to make on a Sunday morning. And this fits the bill. I served it with Texas toast and fried eggs. And I will be making it again.

    I think the recipe name is a little misleading. Not that I have any problem with hash browns with a slice of cheese on top, but smothered this is not! PS.. try making hash browns then set on an oven safe plate, top with stokes brand pork green chili, shredded cheddar and stick it under the broiler till the cheese is melted and the green chili heated through. Quick smothered hash browns!!
