Crispy Hash Browns are a classic breakfast dish known for their golden, crunchy exterior and soft, flavorful interior. This recipe is simple and yields deliciously crispy hash browns every time.


  • 2 large Russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter


  1. Peel the potatoes and grate them using the large holes of a box grater.
  2. Place the grated potatoes in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial for crispy hash browns.
  3. Transfer the dried potatoes to a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper over the potatoes. Toss everything together until the potatoes are evenly coated.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil or butter in a large non-stick skillet or cast-iron pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the oil is hot, add the potato mixture. Spread it out in an even layer, pressing down slightly with a spatula.
  6. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown and crispy. Flip the hash browns over in sections and cook for another 5-7 minutes on the other side.
  7. Once both sides are crispy and golden brown, remove from the heat.
  8. Serve the hash browns hot. They can be cut into wedges or squares, or broken up into smaller pieces.
