Breakfast Week: Hashbrowns


OK first let's do a little house cleaning so to speak! ;oP

Friday Link Love will be back next week. I thought you'd enjoy a recipe to round out Breakfast Week instead. I hope you've enjoyed Breakfast Week...I know I have!

What's For Dinner will also be back next week. My parents were here most of the week and I was enjoying spending time with my Mom versus telling you what we were having for dinner. Watching her with Alexis is so much fun! Also I've got some great recipes lined up for next week too so be sure and check back then!

Now let's talk some hashbrowns!

Hasbrowns are a classic breakfast dish. I had never actually made them, though I often order them when I have breakfast out. They were really simple to make and tasted fabulous! These went perfectly with the Mushroom Frittata...Just the right mix of crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. They are just perfect for a weekend breakfast treat!


What You'll Need:
2 large potatoes, shredded
1/2 a red onion, chopped
Sea salt
Black pepper
Olive oil

Hashbrowns: Potatoes Draining

Shred potatoes and place potatoes and onions, along with a sprinkle of sea salt in a strainer and let drain over a glass bowl for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Coat a skillet with olive oil. Toss the potato, onion mixture together to make sure they are completely mixed and drained. Add some freshly ground black pepper and toss again to mix. Press mixture into the prepared skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes until crispy. Remove from oven and serve.

How easy is that??

Notes: You can leave out the onion if you like. You could also toss in some cheese.

I've never made them in the oven before. What a great idea! I'll have to try that next time!

I actually didn't know you could buy shredded potatoes...How sad is that?? ;oP

I think the oven gives them a crispness that is lacking when you just do them on the stove top, though I've made them that way too.
