To continue to Cook Like A Star, haha..i like this name , i've chosen this Crispy bacon and chives hash brown from Donna Hay's website. Hash browns, never made them before and the only hash brown i remember are the ones from MacDonalds. The McD ones are thick, crispy and quite fluffy and the ones here are thin type, though they are not as fluffy but they taste nice. The not so good thing about these hash browns is that i find that they dont stay crispy for long. it's good to eat once it's done ( if you dont mind burning your throat) but after maybe 5 - 10 minutes, they turned soft. I've made sure i've squeezed out excess moisture from the grated potatoes when i made them, so not really sure why..i failed ! i failed! LOL!
Recipe ( from Donna Hay's website , with little changes )
2 US potatoes, peeled and grated, squeezed out excess water
2 bacon rashers , thinly sliced
8 chives, roughly chopped
2 tbsps vegetable oil
salt and pepper
1 poached egg, to serve
some salad greens , to serve
- Place the potatoes, chives, bacon, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine. Heat the oil in a large non stick frying pan over medium heat. Add cupfuls of potato mixture, flatten slightly and cook in batches for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and crispy. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve with salad leaves and poached egg.
