How To Make Homemade Hash Browns

Make your own crispy hash browns at home with this simple recipe made with olive oil that makes it less greasy, healthier, and more delicious.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1lbRusset potatoes,peeled if desired
  • ½tspsalt
  • ¼tspgarlic powder
  • ¼tsponion powder
  • ¼cupextra-virgin olive oil


  1. Scrub the potatoes clean and grate them on a large-holed cheese grater. In a fine-mesh sieve, rinse the grated potato well until the water runs clear.

  2. Drain the potatoes, and then place them on a clean tea towel or several paper towels. Twist the towel to remove as much moisture from the potatoes as possible.

  3. Transfer the grated potato to a bowl and toss it with the salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  4. In a large skillet, warm the olive oil over medium heat until shimmering and a piece of grated potato sizzles on contact.

  5. Spread the potatoes over the skillet in an even layer and press them down with a spatula. Let them cook, undisturbed for 2 minutes.

  6. Stir again, press them down again, and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat in 2-minute intervals, flipping in sections once they’re crispy enough to do so until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy for about 4 to 8 more minutes.

  7. Meanwhile, line a plate with a couple of layers of paper towels to absorb excess oil, and set it near the stove.

  8. Transfer the hash browns to the lined plate and let them drain for a minute.

  9. Season to taste with additional salt, if necessary, and serve hot.
