Because I'm on a gluten free diet I couldn't use the flour to bind the potatoes so I used an egg white instead and seasoned with coriander and garlic. Yum. Lovely!

never made hash browns before, so i thought I'd give it a go but i had no samon, so with a grated, but also peeled potato a table spoon of flour and a table spoon of american mustard table sauce they came out great. if they are nice and thin and flat theres no worry of under cooking it, after I took them out and I put in the same pan some ripped up ham and spinach leafs till they wilted but not overcooked. Put it all together and it came out better than I thought it would. A bit of tomato sauce on the side made it a perfect lunch too.

My 12 year old made these for father's day today - like others we struggled to get them cooked through - i think because they weren't thin enough. Will try again but might roll with rolling pin between clingfilm

Flavours were great. Didn't manage to flatten the hash brown well and the potato and mustard was difficult to mix together... maybe because I used food processor for the grating?

Made these using the horseradish and they were great. The flavour went wonderfully with the salmon, I think I might use some dill next time. I wonder if the reason that ' unindividual's' didnt cook through is that the potato wasn't grated finely enough or perhaps the mixture was shaped too tightly?

Struggled to get it to cook right through! Delicious, but I suspect I've just been eating grated raw potatos... will that harm me?
