Who’s favorite thing to eat at a dinner is a hashbrown? Who in their house is a short order cook?  I am!  I have read so many parenting articles that say to make your kids eat what you eat, keep pushing the vegetables, don’t feed them fast food, no sugar, blah, blah, blah.  That works for most people.  I applaud them for their efforts and the fact that their kids eat sushi at 2 years of age and all that stuff.  My kids still eat macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers at 10 and 12.  I used to worry about how that looked to all those other parents who were doing it the “right way” but you haven’t walked two steps in my shoes so shut your face.

I grew up in the kitchen, worked in many kitchens, and still love being in the kitchen.  Those other moms say that they hate cooking and that’s why they only make one dinner.  That may save time, money, and sanity for them, but for me and my house, we do it differently.

I have one child who eats all day long.  He’s a growing boy.  He may eat 2 dinners before “dinner” actually happens.  I have another son who has ADD, a thyroid gland in his throat, and a carb addiction.  His ADD affects his ability to eat certain things because of the texture and spice.  His misplaced thyroid gland affects his gag reflex so other groups of foods are off limits.  His medicine makes him less hungry during the day so he makes up for it between 6 and 9 pm.  His small stomach makes for grazing during those hours.  Throw in a husband that travels and an unusual schedule and 1 meal for all does not fit.  And that is ok and what works for our family. I always have plenty of ingredients to make a variety of meals when the kids are ready to eat.

Bless you, if you have one family meal around the table, with everyone there, all eating your freshly prepared meal.  My family is a little on the wacky side and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Potatoes are a big thing in my house.  I just recently started eating sweet potatoes and have fallen in love with them.  My oldest loves potatoes so much that he got a shirt for Christmas that has a potato on the front.  Hashbrowns are our potato of choice on the weekends when we all go to breakfast, as a family, Saturday morning.  This week I decided to throw my kids a curveball and make hashbrowns for one of our dinners.  Breakfast for dinner?  Sure thing!!  Hungry Jack Hashbrowns are great all by themselves but throw in some unique toppings and you have something that everyone can enjoy together!

With all the picky eaters in my house, this was the perfect thing to make.  By turning the hashbrowns into patties and keeping them warm in the oven, you can top them with whatever you have in the fridge, whatever you are in the mood for, and when you are ready to eat!

Hungry Jack Hashbrown patties are a neutral palette for any toppings.  They are great on their own, ask my kids, but combine them with a fridge full of leftovers and you have a short-order dinner for everyone!

I always have a rotisserie chicken in my refrigerator.  Maybe two.  Shred some, add some broccoli and cheese, and put back in the oven.

My kids are big pizza eaters, but what kids aren’t, so I add some cheese and pepperoni!  Mini hashbrown pizzas on the way.

Love the honesty! There are four adults living in my house and we all eat different things for dinner because everyone is SO PICKY! I say everyone, but what I really mean is all of them :D Part of the problem we have is that everyone has different food intolerances and the other part is that my in-laws don't like vegetables. That all being said potatoes are one of the common foods we'll all happily eat. Your close up hash brown pics looks so good - I think I need to go make myself some dinner now!

So easy to make the patties and they set out all the toppings for everyone. It's like pizza night but better!

We had fun making different combos. I still have a few that I want to try like taco and buffalo chicken.

I couldn't help but laugh while reading this J!! There;s nothing quite like a wacky family :D I dont have kids, but if I did and they would be anything like me or my husband, chances are they might be weird too! I love hashbrowns and this is such a great idea! Each person gets to have what they want to have. It's perfect (and looks SO GOOD too!)

It's been such a struggle to find things my kids like to eat. The only potato product that passes their test is french fries so I'm wondering if these hashbrowns might actually work! I'll have to try it. They would DEFINITELY work for me and Paul.

I LOVE that you don't listen to all the hype about what you SHOULD do and just do what works for your family, that is the way to a happy life! I bet those families that do it the supposed right way aren't as perfect as they seem anyway! And who wouldn't love these hashbrowns for dinner, breakfast for dinner is my favourite! Loving all these toppings, think I'd go for the pizza one myself!
