For the Hashbrowns:

  • 4 large russet potatoes, the earthy maestros that will take center stage
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, the liquid gold that will caress and crisp our potatoes
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste, the seasoning that will harmonize the flavors
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, the aromatic breeze that whispers through the golden strands
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika, the sun-kissed spice that adds a gentle warmth
  • Optional: Fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, or parsley), the fragrant confetti that crowns our creation


For the Hashbrowns:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C), creating a haven of warmth for our russet potato virtuosos.
  2. Peel and grate the russet potatoes, a simple act that transforms the mundane into culinary magic.
  3. Place the shredded potatoes on a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out excess moisture—a gentle wringing out that prepares them for their golden journey.
  4. On a large sheet pan, spread the grated potatoes evenly, creating a canvas for our crisp symphony.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, ensuring each strand is kissed by the liquid gold—a moment of culinary indulgence.
  6. Sprinkle salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika, allowing each spice to be a poetic note in our morning composition.
  7. Toss the potatoes gently, letting them coat in the seasoned embrace—a choreography that ensures an even crispness.
  8. Spread the potatoes into an even layer on the sheet pan, a golden landscape ready to be transformed in the oven.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and crispy, and the aroma fills the kitchen—a sensory overture to a delightful breakfast.

Cook Notes:

  • For an extra layer of flavor, consider adding a handful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese before baking—a savory encore that elevates the hashbrowns.
  • Rotate the sheet pan halfway through the baking time to ensure uniform crispiness on all sides.


Sweet Potato Serenade:

  • Substitute russet potatoes with sweet potatoes for a vibrant and slightly sweeter rendition of our morning symphony.

Onion and Bell Pepper Ballet:

  • Add finely diced onions and bell peppers to the grated potatoes, creating a colorful ballet of flavors and textures.

Keto Versions:

Almond Flour Allegro:

  • For a keto-friendly adaptation, replace the grated russet potatoes with a mixture of grated cauliflower and almond flour, maintaining the essence without the carb crescendo.

Cheese Sonata:

  • Introduce a generous layer of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese to the cauliflower and almond flour mixture for a keto-friendly, cheesy twist.

Low Carb Versions:

Cauliflower Cadence:

  • Embrace the cruciferous charm by replacing russet potatoes with grated cauliflower, crafting a low-carb version that maintains the texture and flavor.

Cabbage Concerto:
