Blog #99: Let’s make hash browns in 20 minutes! We can all agree not every restaurant makes good hash browns. Some make them better than others. I’ve ordered ones that look like balls of potatoes sort of mashed together! I know, not what you would expect! Hash Browns may seem a bit difficult to make but after many different ways of making them, this is my favorite way. Broiling in the oven! Easy and crispy on the outside. The perfect cozy meal to have with a side of eggs and bacon.
Hash Brown Styles
There are many varieties of hash browns, from shredded to diced. You can just make them with just potatoes or add vegetables; such as onions and peppers. You can even add ground sausage. My hash brown recipe is made with russet potatoes, onions, peppers and seasoning.
Breakfast is not my favorite meal of the day. But of course I make sure to have breakfast everyday. One, it’s important to start off the day with some energy and two, I am always eating! Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. There have been days when I have actually forgotten to eat with so much going on. But for the most part my stomach always reminds me to eat.
My favorite way to enjoy these hash browns is with a side of scrambled eggs and cheese and sometimes I even add bacon. Yes, I do like to dip them in ketchup just like fries! My kids love these hash browns. Once a while I buy the Alexia hash browns which are so delicious and cook in the oven as well. However, homemade is best for me. I always prefer homemade versus eating out. Maybe because I enjoy cooking and maybe it’s that I grow up eating homemade foods everyday! Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy going out to eat for those days I don’t want to cook but homemade is the winner for me!
