Ingredients

Potatoes - The star of the dish. Choose starchy potatoes like Russets for the best texture. Substitute: Sweet potatoes for a sweeter twist.

Onion - Adds flavor depth. Finely grated or minced. Substitute: Green onions for a milder taste.

Flour - Helps bind the patties together. Use just a little. Substitute: Gluten-free flour blends work well for gluten sensitivity.

Egg - Acts as a binding agent to keep the patties intact. Substitute: For a vegan option, use flaxseed meal mixed with water.

Salt and Pepper - Essential seasonings to enhance taste. Substitute: Garlic powder or paprika for added flavor.

Tips

  • Dry the Potatoes: After grating, squeeze out as much moisture as possible for crispy patties.
  • Preheat the Oil: Make sure the oil is hot before adding the patties to avoid sogginess.
  • Don’t Overcrowd the Pan: Cook in batches to ensure each patty gets crispy.
  • Flip Carefully: Wait until the edges are golden before flipping for the best texture.
  • Keep Warm in Oven: If making a large batch, keep finished patties warm in a low oven while cooking the rest.

How to Serve

Hash brown patties are versatile and can be served as a breakfast item, a side dish, or a snack. They're especially popular in American breakfasts, often accompanied by eggs, bacon, or toast. For a heartier meal, hash brown patties can be topped with shredded cheese, diced ham, or even a dollop of sour cream and chives.

  • Breakfast Sandwich: Place a hash brown patty in a toasted English muffin with a fried egg, cheese, and avocado slices for a satisfying start to the day.
  • As a Side: Serve alongside scrambled eggs and bacon for a classic breakfast. Add some fresh fruit on the side for a balanced meal.
