Sheet Pan Hash Browns Recipe Inspiration

My husband, Tyler, and I love hash browns but that’s not what inspired this recipe haha! While I was developing my cheesy hash brown casserole recipe, I ended up having extra potatoes. They were already cooked and just needed grated so I decided to use them for hash browns. This turned into developing this recipe!

Recipe FAQ

I don’t have a box grater, what can I use?

If you don’t have a grater you can try to use a peeler but I really recommend investing in an inexpensive $10 box grater.

Yes you can, but I recommend making them homemade!

Should you soak potatoes before making hash browns?

With my method you do not need to soak potatoes, the boiling helps.

What’s the trick for cooking hash browns?

The trick is to spread them in a thin layer so they can get crispy.

Is it cheaper to make your own hash browns?

It is so much cheaper to make your own hash browns, especially with my recipe only needing 2 potatoes. Not to mention they’re much more healthy.
