Default Perfect home made hash browns

You will need:

A Potato.
Salt
pepper
Cooking oil
Cheese grater


Peel and grate your potato into a container of cold water. Drain, rinse and cover with water again. Repeat until the water drains clear. This washes the starch from the potatoes and keeps them from turning grey and gluey. Finally, squeeze the water from the shredded potato as best you can using a clean towel or paper towels. I used a potato ricer, but I'm sure most of you won't have one.

Heat a pan (preferably non-stick) over high heat. Add enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan and wait until super hot, just before smoking. Add your potatoes in a thin layer and cook on one side until brown and crispy. Using a spatula turn over the potatos and cook the other side until done. Don't forget to season liberally with salt and pepper. Top with a few sunny side eggs and enjoy.

This is exactly how I make them. I use a rotary mouli-legumes to grate them - easier than a cheesegrater.

i tried making hash browns years ago when i thought it was just simply fried grated potato. i didn't know about the washing and drying off part and they were awful, lol. i read recently about how to do them properly tho, using like you said a ricer or paper towel. i'm gonna try again soon, i don't have a grater right now tho.

Food processor with the grating attachment would also work for like, 20 potatos or something. Plus tons of water comes out.

You can add shredded onion, apple, carrots, ginger, or various spices to this basic recipe for some interesting variations.
