Transcript:Hash BrownsHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make your own hash browns.
Hash Brown IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 3 - 4 potatoes
- 1 onion
- vegetable oil
- 1 tsp salt
Prepare the PotatoesFor hash browns, you can keep the skin on the potatoes, just be sure to wash them very well. Or you can just peel the skin. Rinse the peeled potatoes.
Grate the PotatoesNext, grate the potatoes by hand or using a food processor. Once the potatoes are grated, take off the lid, drain them in a colander, and press out some more of the moisture with paper towels. Put them in a bowl, add the salt, and mix.
Add in OnionsIf you like onions, you can add them too the potatoes as well. Peel, cut and mince the onion. Then add it to the grated potatoes.
Fry the Hash BrownsHeat oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Drop the potatoes into the oil and flatten with your spatula. Brown the first side for about 3 minutes, then flip it over. Do not try to turn it until the first side is brown, or it will fall apart. Brown the second side for about 3 minutes as well.
You can make one large hash brown using the whole pan. Cut it into smaller pieces once it is cooked.
Remove the hash browns from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven while you cook the rest of your meal, or serve them right away.
