I chose to cook a very popular recipe in the USA and UK today, but I will do it in my style as I learned in Transylvania. I’ll show you my homemade hash browns recipe which I will serve with a yoghurt dip, ideal to be served as a breakfast item, but in my country is a perfect appetizer or side dish with meat.

Although the hash browns recipe was first encountered in the United States, it has many variations around the world, under different names such as “rösti” in Switzerland or “tócsni” in Hungary. My recipe starts from the Hungarian version, to which I will add small changes, you will see that it will be delicious.

Ingredients

This recipe in my version is so simple that it requires only a few ingredients, namely three, potatoes, eggs and wheat flour.

Homemade Hash Browns Recipe-Potatoes, Eggs and Flour

Quantitatively, I can say that for four people I used 1.2 kg of white potatoes, two large eggs and three tablespoons of wheat flour. Because we will scrape the potatoes, it is preferable to choose larger potatoes to make our work easier.

Along with the potatoes, we will serve a dip for which we need four tablespoons of Greek yoghurt of 10% fat (or sour cream) and a bunch of chives.

How to Make the Homemade Hash Browns Recipe?

You will see that the recipe is very simple and we start with the preparation of the main ingredient, the potatoes, which we first peel.

We are going to grate them, I chose to pass them through the small grater so that I can squeeze more liquid from them, but it is also possible through the large grater if you want.

After I have scraped them, I squeeze them well with my hands, but you can also use a kitchen towel. The better the potatoes are squeezed, the less flour we need in the recipe.

Put the squeezed potatoes in a mixing bowl and sprinkle wheat flour over them and mix with a wooden spoon until the flour has integrated into the potatoes and absorbed the remaining liquid.

We are going to add the two eggs over the potatoes. I added them whole, but if you want you can first beat them with a whisk and then add them.

Stir again to incorporate eggs and then season with a teaspoon of sea salt, one teaspoon of freshly ground pepper, half a teaspoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of a vegetable mix for soups.

Stir again and ready, we can start frying. If you see that the mixture is too wet and liquid is forming, you can add a little more flour, but do not do it too hard.

Frying the Hash Browns

Heat four tablespoons of sunflower oil in a frying pan, but you can also use olive oil or another type of oil. Take a portion of potatoes by hand and flatten them in the palm to a thickness of about 0.5 inches (about 1-1.5 cm) and put them in the pan to fry.

Fry these hash browns until they turn golden, about a minute on medium heat, then turn them and fry them on the other side.

The ideal texture would be crispy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside. If they are fried, take them out in a bowl lined with a paper towel to drain the excess oil, and continue frying until we finish the amount of potatoes.

How to Make the Hash Browns Dip?

There are many types of sauces that can be served with hash browns, I chose the fastest, Greek yoghurt with chives. In a serving bowl, I will put four tablespoons of Greek yoghurt and a bunch of finely chopped chives.
