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.

3With 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.
