When it comes to classic breakfast side dishes, I know you may be thinking that a girl with roots in the South should be pretty partial to grits, right? Yet, the fact is, I’ve never been a fan, even when I wasn’t grain-free. (Thankfully my family hasn’t disowned me.)
Instead, as you’ve probably guessed from this post – I’m all about breakfast potatoes – homemade hash browns to be exact. Incase you’ve attempting making hash browns in the past, and have been sorely disappointed in their often soggy, gummy texture, I’ve got good news for you! I’m sharing the secrets to hash brown making perfection that will ensure a crisp and delicious result every time!
3 Tips for Ensuring Crisp & Tender Healthy Hash Browns:
1. Proper Potato Prep – Shred potatoes (using a food processor with shred-disc is best, but a box grater will do). Soak shredded potatoes in water to release starches. Thoroughly dry shredded potatoes by pressing between kitchen towels. This is key for crispier results!
2. Seasoning is Your Friend – Be generous in using fine chopped onion and bell pepper, along with sea salt and pepper to turn up the taste!
3. Do Not Disturb! – The process goes like this … Cook undisturbed. Flip potatoes in sections. Cook undisturbed. Flip in sections. Repeat until perfect.
Now, let’s put these top tips into action! My savory recipe below has just three simple ingredients. Yet, combined with a little dash of sea salt and pepper, and a whole lot of love, your family will want to kiss you!
So … make LOTS, because they’re the perfect side dish whether it’s breakfast or dinnertime. Plus, they keep well in the fridge or freezer, and can easily be reheated in a skillet.
P.S. If you’re not fond of white potatoes – no worries – sweet potatoes make unbelievably delicious hash browns too!
