Hash Browns in Oven

There is nothing that I love more than eating hash browns. However, I don’t love standing over a hot cast iron skillet trying to perfectly crisp both sides while trying not to get burned by oil splatter.

There is no better way to cook hash browns than in the oven. All the work is done for you and they’re always perfect for any meal of the day. Crunchy delicious crispy-on-the-outside, cheesy goodness on me is my idea of heaven and these potatoes remind me so much of Waffle House hashbrowns.

Prepare your pan by first placing the foil over the bottom of the pan, then spraying the top of the foil to prevent sticking.

Hash browns are usually served alongside scrambled eggs or sausage. But I was surprised by how yummy these potatoes were on their own! They make a great side dish, and with a little practice, you can eat them as an entree or main course all by yourself.

The perfect hash browns are hard to find, but not impossible. Once you master this recipe, you’ll never go back to the store-bought version again!
