You can make these low sodium simply by leaving out any salt and using reduced sodium cheese, enjoy!

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

40 Min

Method:

Griddle

Ingredients

4 medium
russet or yukon potatoes
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 tsp
granulated garlic
1/2 tsp
granulated onion
1/2-1 tsp
black pepper
flat griddle
1 c
grated cheese
1/2-1 c
pico de gallo

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash potatoes and shred with skins on or removed. Soak in a large bowl of water for at least one hour, preferably several hours. This removes the starch and gives you a crispier hash brown. Not soaking them can result in soggy hash browns.
2
Strain and rinse potatoes well after soaking, dry as well as possible. Drizzle about one tablespoon of olive oil on a hot griddle. I use an elec. griddle because I do not have a gas stove.
3
Spread shredded potatoes out evenly over griddle and cook over med. high to high heat, flipping over with spatula or tongs every 7-8 min. till potatoes are golden brown.
4
Spreading potatoes out as much as possible, sprinkle pico de gallo around, then cheese. You can use a reduced sodium cheese if watching your sodium. Heat until cheese melts.
