Step by step recipe

1 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #1Peel and wash 800 g potatoes. 20 min.
2 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #2Grate the potatoes fairly coarsely, by hand or machine, then place in a large bowl of cold water. The water will turn cloudy as the potatoes release their starch.

Stir the whole lot well and change the water (or leave the tap running) until all the starch has been removed.

We remove the starch to prevent the potatoes sticking during cooking.
10 min.
3 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #3Drain the potatoes thoroughly and leave on a tea-towel to wait.

If you want to do this more efficiently, use a salad spinner.
10 min.
4 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #4Prepare and chop 50 g onion. 5 min.
5 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #5Grate 200 g cheese (Cheddar for the authentic version).

Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).
5 min.
6 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #6Choose a large non-stick pan that can be used in the oven. Melt 30 g butter on medium heat.

Bring to the boil.
7 min.
10 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #10As soon as it boils, transfer the pan to the oven... 1 min.
11 Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #11... and bake for 40 minutes.

The hash brown will bake into a sort of large cake. Check for the colour of the top and - most important - the underneath, which should be golden brown.
40 min.

Remarks

You can serve this American style, with fried eggs and bacon for example, or in a more classic French style with a good green salad and vinaigrette dressing. Why not try both together?

The typical cheese to use is Cheddar, but any fairly hard cheese you like will do.
