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.
