Best Hash Browns Homemade

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by kfreekave

My husband loves home made hashbrowns so I began practicing to find the best method of cooking them. I think I have found it but it will take a little time. I usually just throw some potatoes in the oven while we are watching tv so we will have them ready when we need them.

I tried this method, but found it not very manageable when forming and cooking the hash browns, came out more like a potato pancake, but abeit, the the taste was there of course...fried taters!
