We LOVE this! It's a great recipe for hash browns that are crispy on both sides. You can peel the potatoes if you wish, I always leave the skin on. Sometimes I add some shredded sharp cheddar cheese and/or some minced garlic. A good non-stick pan works the best, I first coat the pan with cooking spray, then sometimes use the bacon grease or cooking oil instead of the butter. This is adapted from the Food Network.
