Crispy Hash Browns

Adapted from: Simply Recipes
Made by: Cathy

Gary and I love potatoes. I don’t think we can live without it. One of our favorite sides for breakfast is hash browns. I saw a recipe for this and I had to try it.

This was also a great opportunity for me to use my new food processor! I love it. I asked Gary if he wanted to see me grate potatoes in 2 seconds, he said yes, thinking I was going to do it by hand…LOL. Of course I put the grating attachment on and literally grated it in 2 seconds. I love my food processor!

crispy hash browns

cooking spray
3 potatoes, peeled and grated
salt and pepper to taste.

1. Peel and grate potatoes. Loosely lay on paper towels and press to dry.

2. Heat up a nonstick skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Spread potatoes in an even thin layer in the skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until it turns golden brown on the bottom. Flip with a large spatula. I cut it in half before flipping. I wasn’t able to flip the hash brown in it’s whole state. Cook for another 4-5 minutes.

3. Remove from heat, and serve.

I ate them not quite as crispy as Elise did, because we like them a little mushy in the middle. The 3 potatoes filled my pan with 1 layer in my pan. Gary finished his quickly, and we wanted more. Next time, I think I’ll make one giant hash brown for each of us!


  1. I haven't made hash browns in a really long time. Mmm. Maybe this weekend...

  2. I've never made hash browns before but looove eating them. It seems easy enough, I'll have to give it a try some time, thanks!
