How to shred potatoes
This recipe calls for frozen shredded hash browns, which makes life easy for you and is why this dish is so quick to put together.
But if you can't get frozen hash browns or simply prefer to use fresh potatoes, here's how to prepare them.
Peel your potatoes. We find Russets - or other starchy potatoes - the best type to use, as they go the crispiest!
Shred the potatoes, using the largest hole on your box grater.
Wrap the shredded potato in a few layers of cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel, then twist as hard as you can to get out all the moisture. Removing the moisture is key to getting the potato to cook evenly and to go nice and crispy.
Your shredded potato is now ready to be used in this recipe.
If you want to use some to make hash browns, then just press the shredded potato firmly into a pan and fry it in canola oil, turning once, until crisp and golden on each side.
Some people like to cook the shredded potato in the microwave on high for 2 minutes before frying. The reason is that this techniqe helps the potato to get crunchy - and stay crunchy - for longer.
