Step 1: Gather Materials
Before you start there are a few things you will need to have on hand. You will need:
- Potatoes, any variety will do. Gather as many or as few as you would like.
- A knife
- A frying pan
- Cooking oil, I used canola
- seasoned salt, or other seasoning
Step 2: Start Slicing!
This step can get a little boring. I start by cutting the potato in half. Then, I cut off slices of the potato from the middle cut. Next, lay the slices down on your plate and cut them into little sticks. Keep cutting potatoes until yo reach your desired amount of hash browns.
Step 3: De-Hydrate
To keep your hash browns from being soggy, you will need to dry them out a bit. This can easily be done with a paper towel, as illustrated in the picture. Continue to squeeze the potatoes until there is no visible liquid.
Step 4: Get Ready...
Place the potato sticks in a frying pan and stir with a spatula. Add about 2 two teaspoons of oil for every medium sized potato you used. Use less or more depending on your preference. Also, add some seasoned salt. I prefer Johnny's.
Step 5: Cook!
Place the pan on a burner, and turn it up to medium. Continue stirring until the potatoes touching the pan start to turn brown. After this point, only flip them as a patty. When most of the potatoes are golden brown, slide them onto a plate.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Your Hash browns are ready to enjoy!
