Turn shredded potatoes into pancake-like hash browns and lightly pan-fried for the perfect hash browned texture that will pair deliciously well with fried eggs and bacon.
Making hash browned potatoes is actually quite simple.
This recipe uses an “all-purpose” potato, which have a medium starch content that fall between starchy and waxy potatoes.
An all-purpose potato can include the new potato, red potato or Yukon gold potato. These potatoes have a medium starch and medium moisture content.
The all-purpose potato is good for any recipe. They are great substitutes when a recipe requires a starchy or waxy potato.
Their medium starch content allows them to hold up to a variety of preparations, including boiling, baking, sauteing and making homemade hash browned potatoes.

Place shredded dry potatoes in a bowl and mix in flour, egg and seasonings until evenly distributed.
Add butter or oil to a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When butter is shimmering, scoop about 1/2 to 3/4 cup potatoes and form into a pancake like style (about 1/2-inch thick) and place into skillet.
Cook until nicely browned on the bottom, then flip over and brown on the other side. It should take at least 5 minutes per side.
Remove from pan, and drain on paper towels if using oil to cook them. If using butter, no need to drain.
