Servings: 20 Hash Browns


  • Pie Maker


  • 1 kilogram potatoes grated
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • cup tasty cheese grated
  • 40 grams butter metled
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 garlic clove crushed


  • Place the butter into a small microwave safe bowl and cook in 30 second spurts until just melted. Set aside until needed.
  • Grate the potatoes and place into a colander to drain the excess fluid. I find it helpful to use a spatula to help push it out.
  • In a clean bowl, add the drained grated potatoes, crushed garlic, grated cheeses and grated onion. Add the melted butter and stir to combine.
  • If using a pie maker, spoon the mixture into your preheated machine and cook for 7 minutes. Carefully turn the hash browns over and cook for a further 4 minutes. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.
  • If cooking on your stovetop, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your frying pan and heat over a medium/high heat. Use a large spoon to scoop up the mixture and another spoon to help shape it in your pan. Cook for 4 minutes before carefully turning over to cook for a further 3 -4 minutes or until golden and crisp. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.


It's important to drain the fluid from the potatoes after your have grated them, otherwise your Hash Browns will be soggy and won't hold together.
