About this Recipe

What is a better breakfast side dish than hash browns? The Brava cooks these hash browns to perfection—giving them a super crispy, golden brown crust and fluffy interior. The shredded potatoes are first soaked in water to remove excess starch (to prevent them from becoming gummy when cooked) and then squeezed through a clean towel to ensure they become crispy when cooked. You can use any type of high smoke point oil/fat in this recipe, but Brava Chef Erin recommends using either vegetable oil or ghee.


  • 4½ cups peeled and grated russet potatoes (about 2 large potatoes)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil or ghee
