Grandma's Hash Browns

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

If ever I was was at my grandma house early enough, she would always make me breakfast.  This was a stable for my breakfast from her.

Ingredients:

8 large russet potatoes, peeled

4 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

in a large saucepan, cover potatoes with water.  Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.  Let cool in a refrigerator overnight.

The next morning she would heat butter in a large skillet.  Shred potatoes and add to the pan.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook until golden brown on bottom, flip and brown on the other side.  

Would go great with my eggs and toast and bacon she would make for me.

There is something special about Grandma's, mine was a fantastic cook as well Will. She would make us take second helpings. Great memories to share!

Hello Wanda,  Mine was a great cook and baker and always had something for us in the cabinet from chocolate chip cookie to Rice Kris treats.

Will,

This is a great way to make hash browns.  One of the restaurants in town does that, and they are great!  A

Interesting recipe. I would have thought that boiling them for 20 minutes would keep them from getting crisp the next day

Good morning, Will... I rarely eat potatoes, but will admit to a weakness for hash browns.

Hello Will - hash browns are definitely a part of early morning comfort food for many.  Sometimes they serve as a reminder.  Other times they are "gone" too quickly to be remembered because they are so tasty.
