My hubby likes hash browns & this is such a simple recipe that I had to try it. The first time i tried this about a month ago, it was a disaster as the mixture wouldn't stay together due to the egg. Plus i didn't cut the potatoes fine enough so that was a waste. Yesterday evening (i thought i'd make them and then just heat them up in the morning), i left the grated potatoes aside to have dinner & they turned a horrible brown colour - yuck! I threw them away! What a waste! I was still determined to make these hash browns! So after dinner, I grated 4 small white potatoes, i didn't rinse them; just let the juices fall through the sieve and then squeezed the excess juice really well. I finely chopped 1/2 a small onion, added 1/2 tbsp of flour, i didn't add any egg, added salt, pepper, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp chilli powder and mild cheddar cheese (followed another reviewer). I made them into small patties, well i made them kind of rectangular, and since i couldn't be bothered to fry at 9:40pm, i grilled them for 20 minutes. My hubby said they looked good. I had them this morning and they are very tasty! My hubby was short on time, so took the rest with him to work. Next time, i'll make them into round shapes (i'm not particular but wasn't satisfied with the shape!) and add spring onions for colour! I gave it 4 stars because I omitted the egg and it's part of the recipe. Such an easy recipe that i remembered the ingredients without referring back to this!
