My hubby loves homemade hash browns. He secretly plots to go to restaurants that feature homemade hash browns. I have tried unsuccessfully to make them to his liking. Then I went to a Pampered Chef party and bought this little tool.
It will julienne veggies cutting them in tiny little strings. They suggest using in on zucchini in stir fry but I decided to try it out on potatoes and make hash browns. It was a success.
Typically I make them on the frying pan on the stove but I had extra kids here to eat so I did them on the griddle. I don’t have a real recipe so I’ll just tell you what I did….
Put a pat or two of butter in the pan. Cut up the number of potatoes you wish to eat. Keep the potatoes in as thin of a layer on the pan as possible. Chop up and onion if you like them and add that in. Let them sit for a quite a while. The butter will melt and the hash browns will be cooked. The potatoes closest to the pan will be crispy and the ones further away from the heat will get tender. Cover them it possible. Flip the potatoes. Let the other side get crispy. What ever you do, don’t stir or continue flipping them. Just let them sit. We love a slice of cheese over the top….yum.
So next time you get invited to a Pampered Chef party and are wondering what to buy, tell them all about this neat blog, Jo’s Country Junction, and how that gal, Jo, uses her julienne tool to make hash browns and her hubby loves them.
Today I am hooking up with Dandelion House. To see more Farm Girl ideas check it out.
