This recipe is quick to prepare but takes a little more time in the stove/oven. I love that with just a few ingredients you get a super tasty side dish. You can customize this recipe by adding different ingredients such as shredded veggies like carrots or zucchini, or even cheese. If you prefer you can substitute the potatoes for sweet potatoes or even mix the two, you will get a nice color with a great flavor. These potatoes can be served with eggs for breakfast, or as a side dish for lunch or dinner. When you make this recipe, let me know how it turns out or if you made any modifications.
Servings: 3 to 4 Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: about 25 minutes
4 to 5 medium potatoes
Dried chives or a ¼ of a shredded onion, or both works great too
Salt and pepper
Garlic dipping sauce
Wash, peel and grate the potatoes
Over low heat, preheat an iron skillet with a little oil. I used avocado oil
In a bowl mix well: the grated potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried onion or onion and a drizzle of oil
Add the potato mixture to the skillet and spread evenly
Squeeze the potatoes a little to the bottom of the pan
Cook over medium low heat for about 10 minutes
Preheat the oven to 375 F
Place the skillet in the oven for about 15/20 minutes to finish cooking the potatoes
When the edges are golden brown, with a wooden or silicone spatula check that the bottom of the hash brown is golden brown, and decide whether to leave it a little longer in the oven or serve it
When ready, with the spatula, remove the potatoes from the sides, move them a little and turn over the hash brown on a plate.
If you are going to serve it the next day, heat it in the oven at 400 degrees until it is a little crispy
When serving, add fresh chives and sour cream to go with it
When peeling the potatoes don't forget to place them in a bowl with water while you peel the rest of the potatoes so they won’t oxidize.
It is preferable to cook the potatoes over medium low heat and let them take a while. If the temperature is too high they can burn on the bottom and be raw on the inside.
