Brinner: Everyone's Favorite Meal!

(breakfast for dinner)

The classic meal, how can you not like it? Blueberry waffles, eggs, bacon and hash browns! All homemade, which of course makes it healthier, right? I like to think so. :)

Oh, don't forget the Arnold Palmer! Makes me feel very summery.

I have never made hash browns from scratch before, so I turned to my hand dandy helper, Google! Found this excellent recipe and really enjoyed it. I do love hash browns!

Hash Browns

1/4 tsp. salt
3 medium potatoes (1lb)
3 Tbsp. butter
1/8 tsp. pepper

Peel potatoes and coarsely shred them, makes about 3 cups. Rinse shredded potatoes and dry well with paper towel (or one of those cool salad spinners!) Combine the potatoes, salt and pepper. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Using a spatula, pat potato mixture into skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook about 10 minutes or until bottom is crisp. Cut into 4 wedges and turn. Cook another 8-10 minutes or until golden and potatoes are cooked.

The only problem I had was that the hash browns were a bit soggy, but either A) I didn't dry them off well enough, B) not enough potatoes to the amount of butter used, or C) my skillet wasn't big enough, therefore the mixture was too thick and couldn't cook properly. I think next time I make these I will split it up and make 2 batches. Hopefully that solves the problem!

God Bless,

    Great hash brown much tastier when they're homemade!
