How to Make Creative Essentials: Cheesy Hash Brown Bowls


  2. You can fill this bowl with anything that you would normally serve with potatoes. Some suggestions are:
    • Use it as a crust for a quiche.
    • Fill it with some yummy scrambled eggs.
    • Sauté some chicken, and serve in the bowl with a light sauce.
    • Cook up some ground beef and onions, and dump them in.
    • Some sautéed veggies would be nice.
    • It is totally up to you… Have some fun with it.
  3. You can use frozen or fresh hash browns for this recipe; however, whichever you choose, make sure that most of the moisture is squeezed out of them.
  4. For this recipe, you will need a mini spring-form pan. You can find them on Amazon, or you could probable pick some up at Walmart, or a Dollar Store. The ones that I use are 5 inches (12.7cm) by 1.5 inches (3.8cm).
  5. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  6. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
  7. Take some butter or oil, and grease the inside of the spring-form pan.
  8. Mix the hash browns, cheese, and melted butter together in a small bowl, and then salt and pepper, to taste.
  9. Chef’s Note: If you want to add other spices, now is the time to do it.
  10. Place the hash browns in the spring form pan, and push them into the bottom, and up the sides.
  11. Chef’s Note: When these hash browns cook, they will shrink by 20 – 30 percent. So, pack those hash browns in there.
  12. Bake until it begins to crisp up, about 25 – 30 minutes.
  14. Fill with your favorite food, and serve to your happy guests. I served these this morning, filled with cheesy scrambled ham and eggs. Enjoy.
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
