Overhead shot of a home made hash brown on a wire rack

These homemade hash browns are a fluffy, crunchy treat. As well as the lemon dill crème fraîche, salmon & avocado option I’m showing here, they are really good with a fried egg, avocado and salsa.

Make a double batch and freeze them, or reheat every morning for 3 days. They fantastic heated up with an air fryer if you have one.
