I have to admit that my level of excitement over these hash browns that I just discovered bordered on embarrassing. One morning during our recent Deerslayer Clan camping trip, I walked down to the camp kitchen to the following sight. A gorgeous mound of hash browns, sizzling away on my Camp Chef griddle, enough for our crowd of 44 (many of them teenagers). It brought a tear to the eye! What angel fluttered down from heaven to prepare this delicious camp breakfast? As it turned out, a dear friend of the Deerslayer Clan had rustled up this mess of hash browns. How did she do it? This was a mess of potatoes.
She shared her secret. She told me that she used dehydrated potatoes that come in pint cartons, like milk cartons. Because their dehydrated, the hash browns weight practically nothing. The small, sealed containers are easy to store in a camper or storage container. They are available in 8-packs at Sam’s Club and Costco.
It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Our friend, Lisa, used my Camp Chef griddle (best investment ever), hot and liberally oiled for the potatoes. The hash browns sizzled happily until browned and crispy. They were flipped and sizzled some more. This was an amazingly simple and camp-friendly breakfast side. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing. You are the most extraordinary camper I have ever known. You have everything a camper ever needs, you know every camping secret. Our annual trip wouldn’t be the same without you.

Very nice, Mrs Deerslayer. As a long time camp cook, I knew as soon as I saw the photo of the carton than you had stumbled onto a grand thing indeed! For group camping, it sure fills the bill! Easy to cook. Feeds the masses. And no refrigeration required. Nice find!
Well I have the two-burner stove like that, but I haven’t yet picked up one of those griddles. Your love for it has stirred me. Perhaps I will put it on my Christmas list. Indeed I think I will!
Thank you. I can’t speak highly enough about my griddle. If you’re good, maybe Santa will bring you the soft-sided carrying case for it. It sure makes hauling it around an easier task. This year I used the griddle to warm enchiladas that were in foil-covered aluminum pans. Nice, even heat. No burning!
What a glorious sight! I had no idea that Costco had these! THANK YOU!!
The sheer wonder of these dehydrated little bits of potato magically becoming something that would feed an appreciative crowd is mind-blowing, isn’t it!
Wow. That’s like a female Bromance. What do they call that?
