Homemade Hash Brown Recipe That’ll Be a Hit With the Kids
Things You Need:
- Large mixing bowl
- Tea towel
- Wooden spoon
- Non-stick frying pan
- 2 large potatoes
- 2 onions (optional)
- 2 tablespoons of plain flour
- Salt and pepper
- 2 eggs
- Oil of your choice
Step 1: Prepare the Potatoes
Have your little chefs clean your potatoes and scrub them dry. Once they are done, take over, peel and thickly grate the potatoes with your box grater.
Step 2: Soak and Squeeze
Have your little ones place the shredded potatoes in a bowl and soak in water. Let it stand for 1-2 hours. This will remove starch from the potatoes.
Place the grated potatoes on a clean tea towel to filter and squeeze out as much excess liquid as you can. If you see them struggling, give them a hand or two when squeezing!
Step 3: Mix the Ingredients
Take your large mixing bowl and have the kids toss everything in there—potatoes, chopped onions (if they’re into that), flour, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and cracked eggs.
With the wooden spoon, have them mix everything until the egg is fully combined.
Step 4: Fry ‘Em Up
The kids might want to sit this one out, so take over! Place your non-stick frying pan on the heat, once hot your chosen oil, and start pouring a spoonful of the mixture into it.
Your hash browns might stick together so, be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each side for 10 minutes, or wait until each side has formed a golden crust.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy
With your little chefs’ help, you now have a batch of good old fashioned restaurant-style hash browns. Perfect with ketchup or ranch!
