If the breadcrumbs are prepared, use 3 ¼ cup per 50 servings in step 11.  

If the breadcrumbs have not been prepared, cut the hamburger buns in half and toast on a low temperature oven (200 degrees F) until slightly golden brown and firm (see recipe MRS 1303 for detailed directions and pictures).
Cool the hamburger buns before preparing the crumbs.
Break the bread into pieces and place them in a food processor or appropriate grinder. Process the bread until desired crumb size is obtained. Reserve for step 11.


Rehydrate the potatoes according to package instructions, then drain them well.


Place 2 pounds 10 ounces (3 quarts) of rehydrated potatoes into each steamtable pan (12" x 20" x 2 ½") coated with food release spray.
For 50 servings, use 2 steamtable pans.


Melt the margarine in a stock pot.


Add the onions and cook them for 5 to 10 minutes.


Combine the flour into margarine and onions.
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently until it is golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.


Slowly stir the milk, salt, pepper, and diced parsley flakes. Blend the ingredients well and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is slightly thicker or for about 10 to 15 minutes.


Slowly stir in the milk, salt, pepper, and dried parsley flakes.


Blend the mixture well and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until it is slightly thickened, or for about 10 to 15 minutes.


Pour 3 quarts of the liquid mixture over the potatoes in each pan. Stir the potatoes gently to combine the ingredients and avoid breaking the potatoes.


Combine 4 ounces of margarine and the bread crumbs. Mix to coat the crumbs well.


Bake until golden brown on top:

  • Conventional Oven: 350 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Convection Oven: 300 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes.

After baking 25 minutes, sprinkle approximately 2 cups of the bread crumb mixture evenly over each pan. Return the pans to the oven to complete the baking progress.
