Ingredients and Variations

Potatoes – Pick the perfect potato! Russets have more starch than other potatoes and will produce extra crispy edges.

Eggs – Choose large eggs to provide the best flavor and protein, and whisk them before adding the other ingredients.

Add-ins – Shredded cheese, bacon bits, and green onions will add flavor and texture to hash brown patties. For a zesty patty, sprinkle in some taco or chili seasoning!

Tips For Crispy Hash Browns

  • Always rinse the shredded potatoes before using them in the recipe. This eliminates extra starch that would otherwise make the potatoes gluey.
  • Pat the shredded potatoes dry before mixing so the other ingredients can stick to them properly.
  • Be sure the oil is hot before adding the potato patties. Otherwise, the hash browns will soak up too much oil and may stick to the pan.

Time Savers!

  • Short on time? No need to peel the potatoes before they are shredded. Just scrub them well & follow the recipe as directed.
  • Make the hash brown mixture in advance and keep it covered in the refrigerator until ready to use (up to 2 days). Simply use as much as you need.
  • Prep these crispy hash browns ahead of time, refrigerate (or freeze), then reheat when needed.

How to Store Leftovers

Keep leftover homemade hash brown patties in a covered container between sheets of parchment paper. Reheat on the stovetop, use the oven, toaster oven or even an air fryer.

    After you cook the hash browns on top of the stove, why do you have to put them in the oven for 10 more minutes? Once they’re golden brn. after cooking, when not just eat them than??
