These Syn Free hash browns are delicious rounds of crispy shredded potato and usually deep fried but to keep them Slimming World friendly I have oven baked them. They are still just a crispy and with all the flavour, but saving Syns by not using any oil.
I LOVE hash Browns and in my opinion a “Full English” is not the same without them. Sadly hash Browns are usually fried in oil, but using a little bit of Frylight and baking them in the oven means we can still enjoy them and they are completely Syn Free too!
Oven baking these hash Browns does not mean they lose their delicious crispy texture, just ensure you cook them until they are golden Brown.
WHY ARE THESE THE BEST HASH BROWNS?
- Crispy and Golden
- Low in fat
- Syn free
- Easy to make
- Only 4 ingredients
- Kids love them too
WHAT POTATOES TO USE FOR A HASH BROWN RECIPE?
I highly recommend using a waxy potatoes like Maris Pipers or Jersey Royals, as they tend to hold their shape better. Just remember to only par boil them for 3 – 4 minutes or they will be too soft to grate.
ARE THESE HASH BROWNS SUITABLE FOR FREEZING?
Oh yes they are 100% perfect for freezing!! Because these take a while to make, and are not as easy as throwing some frozen ones from a bag in the oven I highly recommend batching cooking and storing these in the freezer for later.
Allow the hash browns to cool, then stack them with baking paper between them. Place them into an airtight container or freezer bag and into the freezer. Defrost thoroughly and then reheat in the oven.
HASH BROWN TIPS
- This mixture will make 4 large hash browns, or 6 small hash browns.
- Try making them with Sweet potato.
- If you don’t fancy a full English try them with poached egg on top.
- If you want to go for an extra crispy texture, fry them in the pan with Frylight for an extra few minutes.
DO YOU NEED ANYTHING FANCY TO CREATE THESE HASH BROWNS?
To keep the mixture together I recommend using some round egg rings. I purchased mine from Amazon and they do the job perfectly. Or check out your local B&M or Home bargains.
