  • Summary

    [Photograph: Nick Kindelsperger] Shredded hash browns are one of the easiest versions of breakfast potatoes to make at home. By removing excess moisture and cooking them briefly in the microwave first, this recipe produces extra-crunchy and golden-brown hash browns. Why this recipe works: Squeezing the shredded potato in a towel to remove as much moisture as possible helps them brown more evenly. Cooking the shredded potato briefly in the microwave helps them develop a better crust that remains crunchy for longer.

    Ingredients
