I am so glad to be back to normal life. Yesterday I swept, mopped, vacuumed, scrubbed, put away Christmas decorations, did one million loads of laundry, and organized three billion new flashy-singing-light-up toys, stuffed animals, and adorable nine-month old clothes.
How in the heck is Baby A almost wearing nine-month-old clothes?! I’m going to scream.
The other thing I’m going to scream about is how stinking easy it is to make hash browns. (Also, I feel like screaming about how incredibly un-photogenic hash browns are)
You just need potatoes and a panini press.
Or a waffle iron.
Or a pan and another pan.
Or even just a pan or something heavy.
First you grate the potatoes with a cheese grater or a food processor.
Then put them in a colander and squeeze out all that extra liquid by pushing down on them with your hand.
Then spray your panini press (or waffle iron, or pan) with a lot of non-stick spray. The more spray, the crispier the potatoes get.
Then make a single later of potatoes, close the lid (or put a heavy pan on top of the pan they are in) and cook for 5-8 minutes. I like mine really crispy, so I probably left them in closer to 8 minutes.
