Bacon Hash Browns

Hash browns don’t get enough credit. Simple grated potato cooked on a hot pan gives you a great start to the day. Throw in some bacon and you’ve got yourself a little taste of paradise before you’ve even started your day!


  • 1 large potato
  • 2 pieces of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper


  1. Wash, peel and grate your potato. Best way to do this is with a box grater that gathers up everything as you grate. Saves on time and mess!
  2. Cut the bacon into small pieces, or you can use bacon lardons.
  3. Mix the bacon and potato in a large bowl with a table spoon of oil and some salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan. Once hot, add the potato bacon mix and flatten so it’s evenly spread throughout the pan. Cook on a medium heat for about 6 minutes. Check along the way to make sure it isn’t sticking or burning to the pan.
  5. Before flipping add the remaining oil and melted butter over the uncooked side of the hash brown. Then flip! If it stays together, brilliant, if it doesn’t, no big deal.
  6. Cook the other side for another 6 or so minutes. Once down hash brown should be crispy on the outside but not burnt.

So easy and fast to make, this is a great way to start your weekend and looks super impressive for something so simple.
