    I burned the hash, but I know to check it earlier next time! Was very simple and tasted great!

    I didn’t have a potato ricer so I just used a clean hand towel to press and wring the potatoes. Came out great!

    not bad. i didnt have a potato ricer,so i used a clean cloth. it didnt turn out very flaky or crispy though. so im a bit disappointed. i added some Chaat Masala for extra flavour and grated some cheddar on top while the hash browns were still warm. that added a nice touch

    Amazing if you add garlic salt and paprika!

    There’s nothing to bind it together, you might as well just make French fries.....

    Great. Very easy and tasty. I just pressed the shredded potatoes dry with paper towels. Took probably 10 minutes to cook. No need to use more than the listed amount of oil; even if it doesn't cover the whole pan and just pools in the middle.

    was looking for a way to make them crispy, and found this. i made them the way my mother did, but used the cloth extraction method to make them crispy. worked just fine, and will be making hash browns more often!

    This recipe was wonderful. Cooking the potatoes in small batches so you could get the crispy outer layer. No leftovers from a large pan prepared.

    C’est une bonne alternative et ça fait changement. J’ai rajouté du fromage et ma famille a adoré. It was really good and tasty.

    Muy buena receta. Yo le agregué un poco de pimienta y nuez moscada fresca. Lo dejé cocinar 13 min por un lado y 10 min por el otro, a temperatura media! Quedó perfecta!

    Very tasty! I definitely will make again. Added a shake of garlic and onion powder, along with some Italian seasoning. Some shredded cheese on top would be splendid I think. Be careful and patient. I made a large batch and these get the crunchiest and bestest when fried in a thin layer.
