Homemade hash browns.

IMG_7957

These are super easy and a great way to use up a few potatoes if you have some kicking around!

Lets get together the following ingredients

4 small potatoes peeled

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup plain flour

1 egg – slightly whisked

1/2 cup grated cheese

So what your going to do first is boil the potatoes for 8 mins till you stick a knife through them but not falling apart! (as we want to grate them without them crumbling up)

Strain the potatoes  and run under cold water, throw some ice in if you have it to cool them down quicker.

Then your going to grate the potatoes into a large bowl, watch your fingers!

Once all the potatoes are grated into a bowl lets wash your hands if you haven’t already! and place all the other ingredients in the bowl and mix it all up together, you can also add pinch of paprika or finely cut herbs if you wish.

Heat up a medium fry pan, once hot add some oil to the pan.

Using a  tbsp place  tablespoon lots into the pan, flattening lightly, cook  till they are crispy and golden  on the outside, place the cooked hash brown on  a lined tray and keep warm in the oven.

I served these with a handful of arugula with some  cherry tomatoes  tossed in a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I also threw some crispy onions on top!

Safe to say they went down pretty well at break time!

I also feel a bit of grated or sauté onion through the mix could also work out really well!

Happy cooking, get in touch with any questions.
