OK, I have not done this exact recipe and love hash browns, but that said, I always put my potato (russet, pierced with fork) in the microwave for 5 min. per potato, let it cool before grating. The trick is to remove the starch, or convert it by heating, before frying. It's the starch that make the potato stick to the fry pan. Heating the potato cracks the starch (converts it to a sugar)thus microwaving it prior to frying. The rest of this recipe (flour, onion, egg, salt and pepper) sounds great. I use butter rather than oil because it doesn't stick as well.
