"Very tasty. I added a little cayenne pepper. I thought they were a little greasy, maybe my oil was not hot enough. I tried a batch with very little oil and those were still tasty but did not have the same crunch. I think there is probably a middle ground to be found. I will definitely make these again!"

Original recipe makes 4



* Peel potatoes

* Shred potatoes in food processor

* Rinse shredded potatoes until water is clear

In a large heavy skillet

* Heat about 1/4 inch of oil over medium-high heat.

When oil is sizzling hot,

* Place potatoes into the pan in a 1/2 inch thick layer.

- Cover the whole bottom of the pan, or make separate piles like pancakes.

* 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. If you are cooking them in one big piece, it can be cut into quarters for easier flipping.

Good old fashioned restaurant-style hash browns. Perfect with hot pepper sauce and ketchup!

I wanted shredded hash browns like I'd buy in a diner, and these were just perfect. I skipped on the onions, but they were still delicious.

Pretty tasty, though the middles were soft. I would still make this again.
