Need a quick breakfast side dish? Make your own delicious frozen hash browns in just a few minutes using leftover potatoes from dinner! We don't usually have ANY left over potatoes; but there are many occasions that we could use a pkg. of hash browns out of the freezer to use anytime as a side or in a casserole.If you can find the time, or perhaps have a spouse or a kid that needs something to do....this is a great idea!

How to Make Homemade Frozen Hashbrowns

Step-by-Step

  1. Let the potatoes cool and then using a food processor or grater,shred the potatoes.
  2. Plunge the grated potatoes immediately in water while working. Otherwise, they'll start to turn gray/green
  3. Carefully Rinse the grated potatoes well to help remove some of the starch. A colander will work fine for this step.
  4. Now, Drain the grated potates thoroughly (we use a salad spinner!) or you can use paper towels or a clean (fuzz free) dish towel to gently press ALL the remaining water out of the potatoes.
  5. Gently spread the grated potatoes on a cookie sheet. If you like "Formed Hash Browns" mound them up in 3/4 inch thick piles and crease them with a spatula to make it easier to break them apart for cooking. If you'd like you can sprinkle them liberally with seasonings of your choice, salt and pepper, chipotle pepper, a dash of cayenne, etc.
  6. Freeze, once frozen, remove from tray, place in vacuum seal or ziplock bags and use within 2 months for best flavor.
  7. You may want to write simple directions for cooking on the bag:

    SIMPLE DIRECTIONS FOR COOKING:
    1)Thaw hashbrowns or not, depending on your preference.
    2)Heat a Tablespoon of butter or olive oil in a large skillet, Add onions, spices, or whatever optional ingredients you want.
    2) Add Hash Browns
    3) Cook on one side until golden brown &crisp,
    about 6-10 minutes depending
    upon thickness, then flip &brown the other side.
