How to Make Crispy Hash Browns:
- Wash and peel one pound of russet potatoes.
- Shred potatoes on a large grater or use a food processor.
- Squeeze as much liquid as you can out of shredded potatoes. I do this over the sink, just with my hands. Pick up a little less than a handful and give it a good squeeze. Place on plate or cutting board. Removing the excess liquid will help the potatoes become crispy instead of mushy. Potatoes will quickly turn pinkish brown, but that doesn’t hurt anything.
- Heat oil in a skillet over high heat to about 350°. Place about 1/3 cup of shredded potatoes into hot oil in mounds. Cook about 4 at a time with a bit of space around each hashbrown.
- When potatoes start to brown, carefully flip to brown the other side. Watch the temperature of your oil and lower heat if necessary.
- Cook potatoes until browned on both sides, about 3 – 4 minutes per side.
- Remove to a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Mix 1/2 cup diced onions with shredded potatoes.
- Add 1/4 cup of bacon drippings to vegetable oil for more flavor.
