Step by step recipe

Stage 1
20 min.
Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #1 Peel and wash 800 g potatoes.
Stage 2
10 min.
Pan-baked hash brown (Hash-brown casserole) : Photo of step #2 Grate 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.

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.

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.
