How do you make hashbrowns like McDonalds

Homemade Hash Brown Patties


4 large potatoes, peeled (McDonald's uses peeled potatoes, but you can scrub them and leave the skin on if you wish

1 small onion, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

oil, for frying


Shred potatoes and mix well with onion, salt, and pepper.

Put about 1/8-inch of oil in the bottom of a frying pan or skillet. Heat over medium heat until hot (350 degrees). Drop two spoon fulls of potatoes into oil, flattening into patties.

Fry for 10-12 minutes; flip and continue frying for another 5-10 minutes, until nicely-browned and fully cooked. Drain on paper towels, and fry the remaining potatoes in two more patties. (If oil gets low, you may need to add a little.) Add additional salt if needed; serve with ketchup if desired.

Be sure to fry them long enough on the first side: they should be showing signs on the top that they are becoming cooked before you flip them the first time
