Hash browns


A very simple dish preparation, which is potato chips essentially with onion. They prepare it for breakfast, and accompany it with egg eyes. Some years I worked in the mornings in hotels were one of the main dishes and quite common since all the tourists from any country knew where they had come from.

Their full name is hashed brown potatoes which means shredded brown potatoes and their root is found in some parts of the United States.

The hash browns or dry pancakes are also found in the traditional breakfast dish from rosti which was the farmer's breakfast made from brown potatoes and corn beef with various vegetables.

In Greece the dry pancakes were a quick snack for breakfast or for a light dinner complementing it with feta cheese or cheese and rusks.

Anyway it is a favorite dish for adults and children, very easy, fast for all hours.

Here I will give you the basic recipe. Below I will give you the alternatives you can make for the most delicious dry pancakes!
