Hash Browns for the win!
One of the best breakfasts ever to me was scrambled eggs with toast and hash browns. But like McDonald's hash browns. I will never say McDonald's hash browns taste bad, the opposite, they are delicious but I am definitely the first one to tell you not too eat them!
I have come so far, it has been over one year since I last ate maccas. I haven't had eggs in more than two months. Home made brunch was getting harder and harder. Until, my light bulb turned on! what if I made home made hash browns!
Every recipe had tons of oil involved, eggs and cheese for flavor, they were not an option. So, I asked my little hamsters upstairs to start running harder and think of an easier, healthier way to make hash browns. so, why not pan fry them. First try, it was a mess! so bad. If you don't have an awesome pan, don't even try. Next try, oven.
I tried 3 different ways, and the one I will show you was the winner. BY FAR!
Here it is. An easy, healthier way yo make hash browns.
Makes 8-10 hash browns depending on size.
- 3 potatoes, peeled and shaved
- salt and pepper to taste ( I used 1 tablespoon of each)
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Peel the 3 potatoes and grate them. Place the grated potatoes in a bowl, add salt, pepper and nutritional yeast and mix.
- Pre heat the oven at 380F/ 193C
- Place cupcake paper cups in a muffin tray, if you don't have paper cups you can cut parchment paper in small squares and use them instead.
- Scoop the mix into the muffin tray and fill up half way. Repeat until mix is finished.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes. It will depend how crispy you want the hash browns. I left them one hour and they were perfect!
- Once it is done, let them cool down for about 5 minutes.
- The outside will be crispy but the inside will a bit soft.
You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or snack. It makes a great on the go breakkie! You can freeze them as well, just make sure they cool down first, or keep them in the fridge as meal prep for the week. I had mines on a salad!
