Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes Review & Giveaway

I have this weird habit of checking out other peoples shopping carts while at the grocery store. I was doing just that when I spotted these little milk containers in someones cart. But the containers weren't milk. They were Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes. Potatoes in a milk container? I have to try that. I made a mental note to pick some up next time I went grocery shopping.

As luck would have it, the Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes came to me first. Not just the samples to try but a box including a "Hashbrowns Making Kit"! How cool is that?

So what's a girl to do? Well, get right down to hashbrowns making of course! I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. But let me just say, that it was great. First of all, I love that it is shelf stable. For one thing, no frozen bits popping up and splattering me. No frost bitten potatoes either. It's much more portable and great for camping trips. It is super easy to prepare, although it can take a bit longer than the frozen stuff. Since it doesn't have to be kept frozen or refrigerated, it's a great addition to my hurricane supplies too.

First you fill the container with hot tap water and let it sit for 12 minutes. While you wait for that, you can be prepping the rest of your meal, no biggie. Then you heat 2 tbs of oil in a large skillet. Drain any excess water from the container and add the potatoes. Pan fry to golden brown. Salt and/or pepper to taste. Then enjoy. Easy peasy.


My family & I enjoyed the Hungry Jack® Premium Hashbrown Potatoes. I will definitely be buying it again the future. Now, the packaging states that it makes an entire pound of hashbrowns to serve 6. I would say that realistically it will feed four normal eaters.

Each carton typically retails for $1.79 That's about $0.45 per serving for a family of four. Another plus, it is made with 100% Idaho® Potatoes. There are some great recipes on the Hungry Jack® website. It's not just for breakfast! I particularly like to mix in some fresh bacon bits, shredded cheddar, some green onions and top with some sour cream. Yummo!
