Hash browns

It must be my Irish heritage but I love potatoes!! During quarantine we’ve – had Baked, mashed, roasted and chipped potatoes.

I thought I’d try hash browns & they were easier to make than I realised I would have done them before if I’d known!

You just need some potatoes, a grater & a frying pan.


• 2 or 3 medium potatoes peeled if desired

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

• ¼ teaspoon onion powder – we grated an onion as didnt have the powder.

• ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil


1. Parboil the potatoes (peeled or not) for 5 mins.

2. Grate the potatoes

3. Transfer the grated potato to a bowl and toss it with the salt, garlic powder and onion powder.

4. Shape the potatoes into patties

5. In a large frying pan warm the olive oil over medium heat until sizzlling.

6. Put the potatoes in the frying pan and press them down with a spatula. Let them cook, undisturbed, for 2 minutes.

7. Stir again, press them down again, and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat in 2-minute intervals, flipping in sections once they’re crispy enough to do so, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy, about 4 to 8 more minutes.

8. Drain in paper towel to get rid of excess oil.

9. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

A lovely breakfast addition – to a breakfast muffin or side dish. We had with some fried mushrooms & spinach.
