We love a nice ‘Brinner’ in this house. Eating breakfast for dinner is tasty and nice when you want a pretty lazy dinner. These oven baked hash browns take it up a notch, for not a lot of time, money or effort.

Sometimes you just want a real hearty breakfast, or even something super tasty for dinner, and these are a great side dish with a difference!

Super simply homemade hash browns!

Ingredients for oven baked hash browns:

300g potatoes

1 onion

Salt & pepper

Spray oil (I used sunflower but you can use whatever you like!)

Salt and pepper chips in a wok with text overlay that says how to make salt and pepper chips

Method for oven baked hash browns:

Peel and wash potatoes.

Place them in boiling salted water.

Cook for around 10-12 minutes. You want them to be tender but not falling apart.

While the potatoes are cooking peel and dice an onion. Fry this in oil, I used a sunflower spray oil, until lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

Remove your potatoes and either cool in ice water or place into cool water, replacing twice during cooling, until the potatoes are cool enough to be handled.

Grate the cooled potatoes. You can use a muslin cloth to remove any excess but I didn’t do this, and had no issues.

Combine together your grated potato and cooked onion. Add seasoning (salt & pepper).

Shape into your designed shape. I used a *Le Creuset ramekin for each one to get the shape I wanted, but this really isn’t necessary.

Cook at gas mark 5 (190C) for around 20-22 minutes until they reach your preferred brownness. For an extra good crunch turn halfway through and spray with oil on both sides while doing so.

Serve and devour! I had a fried egg and spring onions with mine but you can enjoy with a tasty breakfast, on a Moroccan lamb burger or however you fancy really!

These really are so simple. I love hash browns but they are often deep-fried so these are a healthier hash brown for sure!

Can I freeze fresh hash browns?

Yes! You can either cook them and freeze then reheat or you can pop in the freezer when they are shaped but before cooking. Either defrost before cooking or add around 10 minutes onto the cooking time and ensure they are piping hot before serving.

Can you reheat hash browns in the microwave?

Yes, absolutely, however, they’re just not going to be as crisp! I would recommend giving them a few minutes refresh in the air fryer. That way they will be wonderfully crisp once again! Be sure to check out my air fryer hash browns if you want to make those instead!
