Many years ago, in a hotel in Hollywood, we thought the breakfast was a bit overpriced. Someone suggested the Dunkin’ Donut across the road, so over we went. In there the guy was offering bacon, egg over easy, and hash brown for 99¢. I was intrigued with the hash brown, he just took a handful of grated potato from a plastic bag and chucked it on the griddle plate.
- Grated potato
- Vegetable cooking oil
- Put some cooking oil in a hot medium sized skillet
- Grate your potatoes and put them in the pan
- Cook until browned underneath and turn over
- Serve when browned on the reverse side
Goes extremely well with bacon and eggs and the trimmings. If consolidated into a potato cake becomes a Swiss rosti.
