  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled, washed, and cut in half horizontally
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ cup (31g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (218g) oil, for frying


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and parboil (partially cook) for 6 minutes. (The potatoes won't be cooked through.)
  • Allow potatoes to cool slightly, or enough to comfortably hold. Then, grate the potatoes using a box grater.
  • In a large bowl, add grated potatoes, eggs, flour, and salt. Mix well.
  • Form into 8 equal patties (about 3-4 ounces each). We made our patties into rounded rectangle shapes; you could make them the shape of your choice.
  • Place the patties on the lined baking sheet and freeze for 45 minutes to an hour. (Don't skip this step!)
  • When ready, heat oil to 350°F in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add 1-3 patties at a time and cook 3-5 minutes, or until browned. Flip the patties and cook another 3-5 minutes. Baste with oil on both sides while frying. Place hash brown patties on a paper towel-lined baking sheet to soak up excess oil.
  • Repeat with the remaining patties, making sure the oil is at 350°F for each batch.
  • Serve patties hot.
