Perfect Homemade Hash Browns

Perfect Homemade Hash Browns created by momaphet

They're crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and not overly greasy ... what more could you want? I especially like the flavor of the butter/oil combination rather than only oil. Add onions or jalapenos, if you like; melted cheese on top is always good, too!

Ready In:
55mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 lb medium-sized russet potato, peeled but left whole (I like to use older potatoes)
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper

directions

  • Cook whole potatoes in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 10 minutes; drain and let cool.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, grate them with a coarse grater.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil and butter together and cook hash browns over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes on each side, or until crisp and well-browned.
  • Resist the temptation to stir them around; just lift up an edge periodically to check on browning.
  • Serve immediately.

    Boiling the potatoes first made a huge difference. The potatoes were soft inside and crispy outside. I didn't wait for them to cool before grating just held the hot potatoes with a towel. I reduced the oil/butter and just used what looked right maybe half. I cooked mine on medium heat they took about 12 minutes (I really wasn't paying close attention to the time.) I've made them twice this week! The second time I added a little onion powder. Made for Recipes without Photos tag.

    Turned out great but there is a fine line between crisp and over done. Had to do the first side almost 20 min. and then 10 on the second side.
