Homemade Hashbrowns

This is comfort food for me. My mom would make these when I was young and it still is my absolute favorite breakfast!
There isn’t really a recipe, just a method. So here is what I do:
Homemade Hashbrowns
4 potatoes, washed, dried and grated
1/4 cup coconut oil
Sea Salt
Spread grated potatoes in hot oil/frying pan. Sprinkle with salt.
Potatoes do start to turn a pink color when they start cooking- this is normal and in the end they will be kind of gray and brown.
Cooking depends on the type of frying pan you use, I turn them several times before I consider them “done.” If you have a larger pan, use your spatula and cut the potatoes into quarter sections so it’s easier to flip.. Flip when the bottom is a nice golden to dark brown.

Salt this side as well.
I like crunchy hash browns, you can serve them as soon as both sides are brown, or mix them and then fry on both sides again. Sometimes more oil is needed to keep them from sticking. That’s why I like to use coconut oil, since I know it’s a healthy option if you are going to be eating alot of it!
Serve these with eggs, fruit and a tall glass of raw milk.
