#1232: AF on the road 3

Today I finally mastered the secret of making hash browns.  For the past few days I’ve been having german fried potatos with breakfast, but today I wanted actual real hash browns.

I have several reasons for eating big breakfasts when I’m here.  And I like hash browns; but the last time I grated potatos to make hash browns from scratch—I think it was sometime in the ‘90s—I ended up with a sticky mass.

Secret:  grate potatos into water.  Rinse several times to get rid of excess starch.  Then soak in salty water.

I ended up with light, fluffy, and crispy hash browns.  Awesome.  (I could have cooked them a little longer once I flipped them over, but what the hey—they’re edible and tasty.)

It’s not really good for me, in the sense that I’m cooking this stuff in bacon grease, but o Lord does it taste good.
