The hash brown potato recipe is a standard breakfast item in restaurants in the U.S. You don't need to leave home however to enjoy perfect, crispy hash browns.
In the most simple terms hash browns, or hashed browns, are a potato recipe in which potatoes are pan-fried after being shredded. All you need to create this tasty treat at home are potatoes, butter or margarine and seasonings. From there you can add diced or chopped onions, cheese, and other ingredients to make your own 'signature' hash brown potato recipe.
Bring water to a boil in a medium pot. Reduce heat to medium and add potatoes. Cook two or three minutes then drain water from potatoes. Press to remove as much liquid as possible.
Melt butter in a skillet on low heat. Add potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn hash browns occasionally so they will brown evenly. Season and serve.
Preheat oven to 400 degree's.
Wash potatoes. Leaving skins on, cut into 1/4 inch cubes. Peel and cut onions into small chunks. Put potatoes, onions and water into a 13" x 9" baking pan. Cover tightly and bake for 25 minutes. Drain well.
In a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic and paprika. Add potato and onion mixture. Toss to coat.
Return mixture to baking pan, spreading it out in an even layer. Increase heat to 425 degree's. Return baking pan to oven and bake uncovered for another 20 to 30 minutes, turning every 5 minutes to brown. Add salt and pepper, and serve.
Here is a hash brown potato recipe that uses purchased frozen hash browns. Below you will also find a recipe for making, and freezing, your own pre-made hash browns so they will always be ready for a quick meal.
Pour frozen hash browns into large bowl. Add the next 5 ingredients and mix well. Spread mixture evenly into a 13 x 9-inch ungreased baking dish. Sprinkle crushed Ritz crackers over the top. Bake at 400° F for 1 hour or until nice and brown and bubbly.
Peel and grate potatoes. Stir in egg and onion and form into small patties. Put olive oil in pan, add patties and begin frying on medium - high heat. Add mushrooms and garlic and fry together until mushrooms are soft and hash browns are golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste.
You can make your own large batch of hash browns to freeze for later use in your hash brown potato recipes. Here are the basic steps to making a batch of hash browns for freezing:
Spray aluminum foil with cooking spray or grease it with butter. Butter both sides of two hash brown patties and lay side by side on the foil. Top with the mushrooms and seasonings of choice. Butter both sides of the other two patties and lay them on top (sandwich-style). Roll up the edges of the foil and place on a grill or campfire grate. Flip package occasionally to heat evenly. Cook until heated through. Package will be soft and mushy. (Time depends on heat of fire or coals.)
A hash brown potato recipe using mashed potatoes is somewhat similar to potato pancakes. Nevertheless it's an easy way to get that crispy, hash-browned flavor.
Beat the egg with a fork in in a medium bowl. Add the onion and mashed potatoes and mix well. Salt and pepper to taste.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Scoop the potato mixutre into the frying pan in 4 inch circles, pat with a spatula to flatten the mounds to approximately 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Cook until bottoms are browned. Flip patties and brown the other sides.
