When my children were younger and I had a full time demanding career, I always looked for short cuts when cooking.

I was searching for a side dish for a meal and used crinkle cut frozen potatoes to make these hash browns. I am them often and we love them. Quick, simple and it looks like you spent a lot of time preparing these.

Method:

Saute

Ingredients

1 c
unsalted butter
3/4 c
chopped white onlons
2 tsp
minced garlic
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
black pepper
16 oz
frozen crinkle cut potatoes (you can use any frozen potato)
1 c
water (you may need more or less)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large skillet, melt butter and saute onions and garlic until onions are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
2
Add frozen potatoes and let simmer in butter until all butter is absorbed. Stir in 1/2 cup of water and simmer until potatoes are defrosted and soft.
3
With the back of a large spoon chop and press potatoes in pan to make it lumpy but mashed some. Add more water as needed to make potatoes moist and workable.

I typically use 1 to 1 1/2 cups of water.

Cook on medium heat, stirring the entire time until potatoes brown lightly.
