Home-Fried Potatoes

Vickie Parks


Canadians prepare hash browns using diced potatoes, not shredded as is the custom in most regions of the U.S. It's usually served in Canada as part of a hearty breakfast that includes eggs, bacon and buttered toast. But it's a pretty versatile, and Home-Fried Potatoes make a great side dish at dinnertime, too.
