DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet cook the ground beef with onion and garlic until no longer pink; drain fat and return to skillet, add in salt (or seasoned salt) and black pepper to taste and continue to cook until well browned (about 12-15 minutes) set aside.
  • Using the coarse end of a grater shred the potatoes, then hand-squeeze out the excess moisture in the shredded potatoes, then place into a large bowl.
  • Add the lightly beaten eggs, onion, cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup vegetable oil and ground beef mixture; using clean hands mix until completely combined (at this point you can season with more salt and pepper if desired to suit taste).
  • Transfer the mixture into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish then spread out with a spoon.
  • Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
  • Place the baking dish onto a large baking sheet (this will protect oven from any oil splatters).
  • Set oven to 375 degrees (second-lowest rack).
  • Cook uncovered for about 50 minutes to 1 hour (for a more drier and crispy texture bake for 1 hour).
