    Lulu burns the house down making Hash Browns.

    Plan on doing up some for breakfast sometime tomorrow afternoon.

    Never made 'em before.

    Any tips, tricks or experiences?


    Call 1711 before 11:30am?

    Reckon that's the goer, to be honest.

    After grating the taters, make sure you squeeze as much moisture out as you can. Flour, paprika, S&P and some seriously minced onions and Bob's your uncle.

    Get the fire extinguisher ready, listen out for the smoke alarms and don't be the first person to ever burn a house down making hash browns.

    Quite a few different theories online.

    Some use an egg. I'd guess that's a beaten egg and only a little bit used to help them stick together.

    Others parboil them, some microwave them after shredding, which to quote:

    By par-cooking chunks of potatoes, you help create a thick layer of gelatinized starch around their exterior that, upon frying, subsequently dehydrates and browns. It's this dehydrated layer of gelatinized starch that gives potatoes a lasting crispness."

    While being unable to parboil shredded potatoes he tested no wave, 2 mins waved and 4 mins waved, and concluded that 2 mins waved was the best of the three.

    tbh, I try to avoid the wave at all times.

    .Copy Cat McDonalds Hashbrowns

    20140108-125757.jpg

    4 large Russet Potatoes (scrubbed clean)
    Kosher Salt
    freshly ground Black Pepper
    1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
    1 large Egg (beaten)
    2 tablespoons Flour
    1/4 cup Canola Pure Oil
    Olive Oil for coating

    Prep Day: Preheat oven to 350 F. Prick potatoes with a fork on all sides. Rub potatoes with oil until lightly coated and sprinkle generously with salt. Place potatoes on a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven an allow potatoes to cool. When there is no more steam coming off of the potatoes, place them in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until they are completely cooled.

    (NOTE: The key to making a crispy hash brown is to draw out as much moisture as possible. That is why I baked the potatoes first.)

    After the potatoes have cooled, shred them onto a sheet tray using the largest hole on your box grater. You want to shred them lengthwise, producing long strands of shredded potato rather than short. After all the potatoes are shredded, you will have about 5 heaping cups – transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of kosher salt, some freshly cracked black pepper, the paprika and the beaten egg. Gently mix everything using a fork. You don’t want to overwork the potatoes or turn this mixture in to a gluey paste. Next add the flour and gently mix in. Shape into patties on a clean work surface, about 1/2-inch thick. You may freeze the patties at this point to use later.

    Serve Day: No need to thaw. Heat a large sauté pan (cast iron preferred) over medium heat. When the pan is hot add the canola oil. Place hash brown patties in a single layer with spacing around them. Pan fry for 1 minute per side or until golden brown then remove to a paper towel and season with kosher salt.

    ^ Sweet.

    That'll do.

    Don't suppose they sell Russets in any your hiso supermarkets dill.

    Reckon the tesco ones with a dozen singed little roots sprouting out of them will have to do.


    ^^ Probably the better option.

    IMO grated raw potatoes make a Rosti, not hash browns. Hash browns should be made from cooked potatoes.

    Good stuff B0b. Gonna go the cooking route.

    Whether that's 35 minutes in the oven or 2 minutes in the wave remains to be seen. I have a sneaking suspicion it will be the latter.

    AKA Home Fries. No idea where this side dish originated but I'm very happy someone put the idea onto a plate. Some places add onion and a hint of garlic too. It just works perfectly on the same plate as most fried breakfasts.

    I like the ones made from shredded potatoes. Like you get at Waffle House and Denny's in the US.
