The hash was so crumbly, I couldn't form patties. I added a beaten egg. Still too crumbly. Another egg, still too crumbly.
I won't add more egg because if I do, the patties will taste eggy. What else can I use for a binder? I won't waste this hash and I don't want to just stir it in a pan til the eggs cook.
You can add bread crumbs, panko crumbs, or oats.
Bullion for moisture and cracker crumbs.
I have added left-over mashed potatoes or even flake "instant" potatoes but it takes a pretty firm hand to make a patty of this type hash. I believe some brands are more difficult than others to form patties but I'm not sure which brand I had problems with.
Have you considered just placing your hash into serving size portions and freezing them for a later date? Maybe by then you will have less volume to deal with and can experiment with different solutions/recipes?
I have made delicious stuffed green peppers with hash and cooked rice as well as mixing a little pineapple with just pan frying the hash and serve as a main dish or serve with eggs on top - usually everyone loves it.
I bet everyone does love it. Sounds good. Thanks.
