Atomic Hashbrowns

Atomic hashbrowns

This month for Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to our group D hostess Sarah's blog, Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Sarah is an Army wife and mom to 2 young kiddos. How she has time to keep up a blog full of recipes, Pinterest posts, and linky parties is beyond me, but she does, and she does it well! While perusing her blog to find a recipe to make, I came across this one for hash browns and knew it was the one for us. We love to make big breakfasts on the weekends and I knew that this would be a welcomed alternative to our typical cubed hash brown potatoes. These hash browns reminded me of potato pancakes. I bet they would be delicious topped with a dollop of sour cream, but we paired with some eggs and we were in a happy food coma for the rest of the day! 

2 pounds Russet Potatoes, peeled, grated, and dried
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

In a large bowl, toss the grated potatoes with the garlic, paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  Add 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes to the pan and pack them down tightly. Cook for 5-7 minutes. Carefully flip the potatoes onto a baking sheet and add the remaining butter and oil to the empty skillet. Add the potatoes back to the pan, cooked side up, and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes. Slice the hash browns into wedges and serve.

We love hash browns in our house and I am loving the extra "fire" in these. Can't wait to try them!

These look awesome! Hash browns is one of those things that I always struggle with ( I have no idea why, I just can't make a good hashbrown!) I will definitely try this recipe, though, because it looks awesome.

We love hashbrowns at our house, especially when they come out crispy the way yours looks like they did. Greta job. :)
