Hashbrowns {A Fast and Simple Homemade Recipe Great with Bigelow Tea}

american breakfast with bigelow tea

I love hashbrowns, crunchy, hot, golden, delicious hasbrowns with a cup of hot Bigelow Tea. Gimme. And seconds. I could eat them as a breakfast by themselves or with a biscuit and bacon. But they’re a pain to make, right? Wrong! Super-simple, fast and delicious hashbrowns can be done with little or no fuss in just minutes. Gimme more.

 

What You Need To Make Hashbrowns:

Ingredients: potatoes, salt, and cooking oil (canola, vegetable, olive, whatever you usually cook with).

Tools: peeler, grater, griddle, spatula, and plate.

This is the easiest recipe for breakfast foods I know. And it tastes so very good.

How To Make Your Hashbrowns:

  • Pour 1/4 cup of oil into your griddle and turn the burner on somewhere between hot and medium
  • Peel your potatoes – or just wait to peel them until you’re about to make another hashbrown…no need to rush and do them all at once.
  • Grate your potatoes like cheese!
  • Make a little pile of grated potato in the hot oil (be careful!) and flatten it out gently with the spatula
  • When you can see the edges getting golden brown, flip it! flip it good!
  • Pull those hashbrowns off the griddle onto the plate and salt to taste as you see the edges getting a little past golden and into “browned”
  • EAT! (with or without ketchup)

Tips to make your hashbrown-ing experience just a little bit easier:

  • You don’t have to peel! Sometimes, I’m just too lazy to peel the potatoes-and besides, my mom always told me that the peels have all the nutrients anyway, so don’t peel, Camille! It also adds a different flavor you can try the second time you make this fabulous recipe.
  • Use a grater with big holes-the bigger chunks allow more air to get between them, which makes allows the hashbrowns to crisp easier. I like to use one that has a box underneath that lets me see the amount of potato I’ve got ready-and it’s dishwasher safe, which is totally awesome, but really, any grater will do as long as it has the big holes (the little holes are too small for me).
  • Let the oil get good and hot. Test it with one little sliver of potato and if it pops and boils, you’re ready to go. If not, maybe be patient for a minute or two more. But don’t let the oil get too hot, or you’ll burn yourself when it pops on you! Safety first.

  • It makes it easier to get the hashbrowns super crispy when you use a griddle. I have three (because sometimes you have to make pancakes with hashbrowns, and sometimes it’s just awesome to have two griddles of pancakes going), but for hashbrowns, I prefer to use one that’s uber-flat and very big, allowing me some extra room to maneuver my sweet little hashbrowns-it’s also non-stick, which is SUPER important.
  • Make it with Bigelow’s American Breakfast Tea. It’s great, strong tea that goes really well with the smooth flavor of the hashbrowns. I got mine at my local Wal-Mart, and here’s a coupon for $0.55 off.  Bigelow Tea is All American: 100% American made by an American Family; an American Company for the American consumer. They grow their tea at their Charleston Tea Plantation, America’s largest working tea garden. Kinda cool. Besides in Charleston, you can find them on their Bigelow Facebook page and at Bigelow Tea on Twitter.
