Hash Brown Potato Cakes. Hash browns have been my son's "go-to" breakfast this month. Trader Joes has a good already-made product, but if you want to make your own, the recipe below tastes great and can be made ahead and then heated for a quick breakfast.
2 large russet potatoes
1/4 of an onion (if tolerated)
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
Peel and shred the potatoes into a colander. Rinse them with cold water and then deposit them onto a clean kitchen towel. Wrap them up and squeeze the excess water out over a sink. Put the potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add the onion, oil, egg, salt and pepper. Gently stir the ingredients together. Spray a non-stick skillet and heat to medium. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mix into the skillet. Press each cake down with a spatula. Cook five minutes on each side. Serve warm or wrap and refrigerate for later.
