If the breadcrumbs are prepared, use 2 cups per 50 servings in step 8.  

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 7125 "Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs (WGR)" 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 the desired crumb size is obtained. Reserve for step 8.


Place 1 pound, 3 ounces of dehydrated potato slices into each steamtable pan (12" x 20" x 2 ½") coated with food release spray. For 50 servings, use 2 steamtable pans. For 100 servings, use 4 steamtable pans.


Sprinkle the flour, salt, pepper, parsley, and onions over the potatoes.


Melt the margarine.


Add the milk, water, and melted margarine into the potatoes in the steamtable pans. Slowly stir until the ingredients are all combined.


Cover pans with foil and refrigerate overnight.

CCP: Hold under refrigeration (41 degrees F or lower) until ready for assembly.


To Bake:

  • Conventional oven: 350 degrees F for 1 hour
  • Convection oven: 325 degrees F for 1 hour


After baking for 25 minutes, sprinkle approximately 1 cup of bread crumbs evenly over each pan. Return the pan to the oven to complete baking.

At end of baking time, test to ensure the potatoes are tender.
The dish will still have liquid in the steamtable pan. It will become more uniform as it sets.

CCP: Heat to 135 degrees F or higher for at least 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process. If manufacturer instructions on the package or case have a higher temperature, follow those recommendations.


Serve immediately or cover and place in warmer until ready for service.


Portion with 4 ounce spoodle or #8 scoop for service. Each portion provides ½ cup serving of starchy vegetables.

CCP: Hold and maintain the product at a minimum temperature of 135 degrees F or higher. Check the temperature every 30 minutes. Leftovers should be covered, labeled, and dated. Quick chill within 2 hours to 70 degrees F or lower and from 70 to 41 degrees F or lower within an additional 4 hours.
