Homemade Hashbrowns

Every so often I run out of breakfast items. No avocados, no eggs, no fruit; and I must be gluten free. On those days we sometimes go to our local greasy spoon restaurant for breakfast. But wait a minute, I had some potatoes in the crisper. I decided to try making homemade hash browns. Oh my goodness, why haven't I tried making these sooner.

Grate three small potatoes with a hand grater. Pat the grated potatoes dry on paper towels. Melt some butter in a non stick ceramic frying pan, add the potatoes, season with salt, pepper, and dried or fresh chives. Cook till browned. It took about ten minutes to make the hash browns. Oh so delicious. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  3. I love potatoes, but have never been a hash brown lover (usually order grits when given the choice). But perhaps I should try home-made ones!

    1. Hi Rian, thanks, I usually only have them at a restaurant. Now I need to learn how to make grits, we shall see.

  5. Yum, definitely, Yum! I will try making those in the next day or two. I'm cooking something at the moment, I'm roasting some chicken, potatoes and red peppers. I hope to stuff the red peppers with small bits of the chicken and a little bacon! Probably some sunflower seeds will find their way into the mix somewhere, I like adding them to things if I can!

    1. Hi Peter, thanks, I add sunflower seeds to salads, and once I did a pasta salad with sunflower seeds, it's on my recipe page.

  6. I never have breakfast...perhaps I should, but lunch is my main meal of the day. If I had breakfast...I wouldn't feel like any lunch, no doubt.

    Fruit and raw nuts are my go-to in the evenings. I've not cooked an evening meals in years, now.
