Serves: 5 (10 sliders)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
|20||ounce||package shredded hash browns|
|1/2||cup||shredded mozzarella cheese|
|1/4||tsp||pure ground black pepper|
|2||tsp||olive oil, divided|
In a large bowl add hash browns, eggs, shredded cheese, pepper and salt. Mix the ingredients using your hands, making sure everything is well coated.
Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a large nonstick saute pan over low to medium heat. Grab a handful of the potato mixture, about 1/4 cup, and create a ball. Place it down on the pan and carefully pat it down to create a flat disc shape. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes and then flip it over and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel. Repeat until all hash browns have been used.
In a small bowl, mash the avocados and sprinkle with a little garlic salt. Place a spoonful of the mixture onto a hash brown stack. Top with half slice of Serrano ham and a slice of mozzarella cheese. Top it with another hash brown stack.
