Hash Browns a la Bobby Flay

Sometimes, I think, I could live on potatoes but I have gone through a pasta stage and more recently, a vegetable stage. Right now, potatoes are what call to me to cook them. As a Brooklyn girl, how could I not make Bobby's Brooklyn Hash Browns?

I have to confess, I failed with this recipe. After all the ingredients are mixed together, the directions are to make rectangular patties and fry them. There was nothing to hold them together and I could not make that work so I cooked them loose, like I normally make hash browns. They were delicious but not as fancy as the rectangles.

Years ago, I bought frozen hash browns and loved them. What is not to love? As I started cooking more and making my own basics, it seemed weird to me, to buy the ready-made hash browns. Sometime, I can be stubborn for no reason. This is exactly like buying shredded cheese which I did for the longest time, until I realized, I actually enjoy shredding cheese, if the amount is workable. Now, I shred my own cheese but I keep a bag of shredded mozzarella and a bag of shredded cheddar, in the freezer.........in case of an emergency. They probably have been frozen longer than recommended.

Brooklyn Hash Browns (adapted)


3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 large onions, halved and thinly sliced

kosher salt and black pepper to taste

2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch dice

2 teaspoons sweet paprika

1 tablespoons chopped chives


Heat half of oil and half of butter in medium skillet.

Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and caramelized, about 40 minutes. I walked away for a few minutes and some of mine burnt.

Cook potatoes in a medium saucepan in salted cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are almost tender. (10 - 12 minutes) Drain well.

Combine potatoes and onions in a bowl. Add paprika and season with salt and pepper.

Here is what I did not succeed doing. Divide the mixture into 8 portions, forming each into a half-inch rectangle.

Heat remaining oil and butter in a cast iron pan or a non stick skillet. Cook rectangles on one side until golden brown (10 minutes) and then flip it over until bottoms are pale golden brown (2 minutes).

Serve two rectangles to each person.

*I added something to the mix. I sliced two sausage and fried them and added them to the potatoes and this was a fabulous meal.


  1. I love potatoes and these sound yummy! I will prob cook them loose as well, so much easier.

  2. I'm not a fan of Bobby Flay, but I am a fan of potatoes. I'll give these a try!

  3. I have trouble even getting loose hash browns to work for me!

  4. THC can be detected in urine, blood, hair, and saliva, but urine is the most common test. The length of time THC stays in your system is determined by a number of factors, the most important of which are: People who smoke less, exercise more, and have a faster metabolism and less body fat get rid of THC faster. Regardless of the above parameters, eating a nutritious diet, exercising regularly, and drinking lots of water can all help to accelerate the pace at which THC leaves your body. This is a difficult topic to answer because everyone is different; yet, we are all affected by the same elements that govern the amount of THC and its metabolites in our bodies: Regular use (more than once a week) causes THC and its metabolites to build up in your fatty tissue, which is likely the most critical aspect. The occasional smoker, on the other hand, will have very little accumulation in their body. The rate of metabolism varies from person to person depending on heredity, height, weight, sex, and level of physical activity. Visit: https://www.urineworld.com/
