There's no need to leave your house or change out of your PJs to enjoy some Crispy Hash Browns! You can achieve a diner-quality dish right under your own roof. These crunchy spuds are shredded to your liking and mixed with some sweet onions to ensure they're full of flavor. Sizzling on a skillet, your Crispy Hash Browns can be made just the way you like them. And hey, who knew you could achieve this beloved starchy goodness without having to sit on a sticky booth or navigate a large, hangry crowd—what a delicious delight!


2 medium russet potatoes, shredded
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup oil for frying, or as needed
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste


Step 1

Rinse the potatoes until the water is clear.

Step 2

Drain the water and squeeze the potatoes dry.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, place the potatoes, onions, flour, and egg. Mix until evenly distributed.

Step 4

In a large skillet, heat about 1/4-inch of the oil over medium-high heat.

Step 5

When the oil is sizzling hot, carefully place the potato mixture into the pan in a 1/2-inch-thick layer. Cover the whole skillet with the potato mixture or make separate piles like pancakes.

Step 6

Cook the potato mixture until nicely browned on the bottom. Then, flip the potato mixture over and brown on the other side, about 5 minutes per side. If cooking it as one big piece, the potato mixture can be cut into quarters for easier flipping.

Step 7

Transfer the hashbrowns out of the skillet and drain them on paper towels.

Step 8

Season the hashbrowns with salt and pepper.

Step 9

Serve immediately.
