Breakfast Is tasty take two
MMM...Homemade hashbrowns the reaction will be..."You Made This?!"
1 medium potato per two people.
Shred your potato in medium sized pieces using a hand shredder or another grinding method. I suggest a hand cranking shredder to shred the potato(s).
1 1/2 tablespoons shortening
Heat up the shortening in a pan (use one with a heavy bottom for best results.) add the hash browns when oil starts to swirl. Use low heat!
As much or little fresh onion as you like
Add this to the potatoes
Two pinches of Salt
Add this also to the potatoes
LOTS of pepper
Add plenty to the potatoes and stir in the mix all together thoroughly without making a big mess.
Rule one: DO NOT
FONDELE THE POTATOES!
Okay so now then, put your hash browns in the pan after the oil is heated to a point where it is swirling. After a min, go back to the pan and use a spatula to GENTLY scrape the hash browns from the sides. Forget about them while you prepare your other food. Half way through making everything else check on your potatoes and continue to check their sides and scrape them every now and then. Good potatoes are the ones that you don't play with or worry about. They are left alone, and not tainted by over fondling! When they come up easily from the bottom and not forced they are ready to be turned beware of the oil it hurts if it pops you! Once the opposite side is done take out your potatoes and THEN turn off the stove, cold grease soaks right into the food that is sitting in it. Bon a petite! =D
