Homemade Hash Browns

Hash browns are one of our favourite parts of a big breakfast, but there is nothing better than making them yourself. They are really easy to make, very healthy and you only need 3 ingredients!


  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 egg


  1. Roughly grate the potatoes. You can swap out some of your potatoes for sweet potatoes if you fancy!
  2. Peel and grate your onion, adding it to the potato mix.
  3. Wash the grated potato and onion through before squeezing out all the moisture and drying them well.
  4. Beat an egg and add salt and pepper for seasoning (you could also add a few chilli flakes if you wanted).
  5. Add the egg to the potatoes and use your hands to mix in.
  6. Put the frying pan on a medium to high heat
  7. Use your hands to create flat balls of the potatoes mixture and place them into the frying pan. Make sure that they are not too thick.
  8. After 4-5 minutes flip the hash browns over to cook on the other side. You want them to be golden brown on each side (you could add a lid to the pan if you want them to cook a bit faster).

These hash browns are a delicious and you can eat them at any time of the day – as a snack, with breakfast, with a salad for lunch or as a side at dinner. We served them with some fresh avocado, cherry tomatoes and vegetarian sausages for brunch – what an easy way to get 3 of your 5-a-day.
