Hash Brown

Hash Brown

  • 1 large potato
  • 2 sprigs of green onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Fill a large bowl with cold water.  Peel the potato and grate it.  Place the grated potatoes into the bowl of cold water and let sit for 2 minutes.  Drain well and add in the green onion, salt and pepper.   Mix well.

Heat up a pan on hot.  Once hot, add in the olive oil and butter.  Swirl the pan so that it becomes coated throughout with the olive oil and butter.  Add in the potato mixture and use the back of a fork to flatten out the potato mixture into a thin layer so that it covers the entire pan.  Cook on high for  3 to 5 minutes.  Flip the potato patty over.  This can be done easily using a plate.  Place the plate over the pan, flip the pan over (the cooked side will be facing up) and then slide the potato patty from the plate onto the pan.  Turn down the heat and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes or until the potato patty is cooked through.  Serve with some plain yogurt or sour cream.
