Hash browns

Side Serves 4 15 min
Crisp, buttery and delicious additions to breakfast, brunch or dinner. This should make about 8 hash browns. You can leave out the peeling if you're using young, thin-skinned potatoes. Make sure you season well before mixing: this works better than seasoning after frying.


  • 500g potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1½ tbsp butter
  • 1½ tbsp plain flour, sifted
  • oil for frying, e.g. vegetable or sunflower
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Put the grated potato in a large colander and wash well to remove the starch. Drain, put in a tea towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. In a large bowl, mix the onion and potato. Season well.
  • Step 2

    Melt the butter in a small saucepan and mix the melted butter and flour into the potato mixture.
  • Step 3

    Mould the mixture into flat patty shapes. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and fry the hash browns on both sides for a few minutes, until golden brown. Press them with the back of a spoon as they cook to flatten them further.
