There are times that you need a side dish that is simple and quick to prepare. Hashbrowns are definitely one of those easy side dishes. I’m kinda surprised that people opt to buy the frozen variety so often because they are actually very easy to make and with no chemical additives in the homemade kind, they are much healthier for you too!

When I first created this recipe, doing hashbrowns on the stovetop or in the oven, were your only choices. Of course, now more people are also doing them in the air fryer. I have not quite jumped on the air fryer bandwagon…yet. But I’m researching them and pricing them out. Once I’ve made the decision to purchase one, I will revisit this recipe and updating for you!

You can cook the potatoes in advance and allow them to chill in the refrigerator overnight. These are great grilled up by themselves or use in a tasty breakfast casserole. You can always use them as a side dish for a homemade burger! One of my favorite things about these is that they can literally be used for any meal! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

This recipe is both gluten and grain-free….naturally!
