Cheesy Pico de Gallo hash browns

Lynn Socko


What's better than fresh home made hash about add some pico de gallo and some cheese on them.
You can make these low sodium simply by leaving out any salt and using reduced sodium cheese, enjoy!

How to Make Cheesy Pico de Gallo hash browns


  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.
