If you are buying frozen hash browns, stop! I know many do this for convenience, but it is a processed food item, reduce the processed food if you can not only save a bit when shopping, but have a healthier meal as well. I do not give servings on this recipe, 2-3 medium potatoes works fine for my wife and I.

Instructions
  1. After shredding the potatoes, place in cold water and swish around for a bit, then pick up the potatoes and squeeze all the water, and I mean squeeze! Change the water and repeat this. do this 3-5 times or until the water you are squeezing out is clear and the water is clear. What you are doing is removing the starch. Once the water is clear and the potatoes are well squeezed, place on a plate. If using in another recipe where the hash browns will be cooked, use them now and disregard the rest of the recipe.
  2. Heat a large heavy pan, cast iron is a good choice, to medium low heat and add the butter. When the butter is melted, swish it around in the pan a bit to coat the bottom. Add the shredded potatoes and pat out flat with a spatula. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Now let it cook, you are not making a stir fry, no mixing, just let it cook, flatted out. Watch the edges and you will seem them start to brown up, using the spatula, lift up an edge and check the bottom, should be golden brown, when golden brown, try and flip the whole thing, think of it like a potato pancake.
  4. When the other side is golden brown, using the spatula, cut in half or quarters and plate up with eggs for a hearty breakfast.
