We love crispy shredded hash browns but no matter how well done we order them, they often come less than perfect doneness. I decided to do this on a sheet pan and see if I could get good results. It came out so good I decided to share the recipe. If you like Crispy hashbrowns with little fuss, this is your recipe! I also like this one because it takes very little fat and is still nice and crisp!
