I have tried both cooking in the oven and deep frying these ALDI hash brown patties and they still fell apart. They are getting 2 stars because they tasted great, but they really need to stay together, since the shape is the idea behind the product, there are bags of hash browns that are not in squares if someone doesn’t want squares.
