6 Hash Browns Recipes: Easy Peasy and Delicious
Sheet pan hash browns
One of the easiest ways to make hash browns is by adding a little butter, salt and pepper, and tossing them on a sheet pan and baking them to golden perfection.
Here’s our favorite recipe:
Place aluminum foil on a cookie sheet pan. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil onto the aluminum foil and spread around until covered. (Or spray with cooking spray.)
In a bowl, mix one bag of frozen hash browns, diced green onions, diced garlic (1-2 cloves), and shredded cheese. Toss with tongs. Next add 3 Tablespoons of melted butter, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.
Spread this mixture onto the aluminum foils and bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. (We love when the sides get nice and crispy!)
Hash browns on a Stick
Yes, it’s possible. This video shows you how to turn tater tots and bacon into a hearty, scrumptious meal on a stick you can serve for brunch or take along with you on an early morning road trip. Yum!
Here’s the recipe:
Bake one bag of tater tots on a sheet pan at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until crisp. Assemble 8-10 tater tots on a skewer and return skewers to the baking sheet. Sprinkle tater tots with one packet of dry ranch dressing seasoning, cooked bacon bits, and shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake at 425 for 10 minutes and you’ve got a beautiful plate of hash browns on a stick.
Hash brown cups with bacon and cheese
Here’s a fun hack–did you know you can cook hash browns in a muffin tin? These hash brown cups are the perfect portion and make for a portable meal. We even like to keep them in the fridge all week for a quick grab-and-go breakfast.
And the best part…you don’t have to stand over them babysitting and flipping. Score!
Here’s the recipe:
In a large bowl, mix a 16oz bag of shredded hash browns (thawed), 1 cup of cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs, 4 TB melted butter, and 1 cup chopped cooked bacon.
Mix together and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder (or use ranch seasoning…it’s delish!). Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and press down the hash brown mixture into each tin.
Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until the tops are crispy-crunchy. Top with sour cream, chives, more bacon and enjoy!
