I suppose it might be better than the lutefisk hash browns.

Baking Potatoes I have found to be the best way to make hash browns. If you have never tried this method I strongly recommend it. The Turmeric  adds little flavor but give the potatoes a great color. You could add peppers and onions also....Russ

Thats how i make my hasbrowns-when we are having baked potatoes, I always make a few extra just for the purpose of fried potatoes.

Not to nit-pick, but I always thought Hash Browns were grated spuds, fried crispy on one side then flipped and browned again. Maybe it's a regional thing.
And what have you got against egg yolks?....I mean you're using Spam so it can't be a health thing. I do like the turmeric thing tho.

Its a regional thing. I agree with you on the shredded ones as that's what I always called them. While the others were just called home fries. The lack of egg yolks was because my son does not like them. I posted it as I made it.
 
On a side note: When making actual Hash Browns (the shredded ones) this would be my favorite: http://www.samsclub.com/s...ip?sprodId=prod3170020
 
I tried them after someone on this site told me that Waffle House used freeze dried also...Russ

The baking potato as more starch in it than some of the other taters, so it fluffs and makes good mashed taters too.
 
Stroud's in KC use Baking taters for their mashed taters, and they are YUMMMMMY.  I too have a secret love of only this type of SPAM.  Maybe I am part Hawaiian

What Russ is making I would call "SPAM Hash', Like Corned Beef Hash but using SPAM.
To me, Hash Browns consist of potatoes and a little onion only, no meat.
Guess it doesn't matter what you call it as long as it tastes good!
