Low Calorie Homemade Hash Browns Recipe!

Hello lovelies,

I don’t know if I’m going to kick off a huge debate by asking this but here we go… hash browns, are they for breakfast or for dinner?

I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t ever a fan of hash browns (if you know me personally, you’ll know I have this weird thing when it comes to different potato textures) until I tried a Mc Donald’s breakfast hash brown. Boy did that change the game!

That being said, I never really ate hash browns for breakfast, I preferred them with my dinner. Is that weird? my mum was buying them bagful after bagful as we all just became obsessed with them and had them with most meals.

Whilst thinking of things I wanted to cook and share with you all, hash browns came to mind. I knew the recipe wouldn’t be too hard so I thought I’d have a go at it.

Lets just say, hash browns are ridiculously easy to make so if you’d like to read the recipe, it’s below;

Category: Breakfast / Dinner

Serves: 6

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 40 Minutes

Overall Time: 50 Minutes

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Low Calorie Cooking Spray
  • 4 Large Baking Potato, Peeled
  • 1tsp Of Onion Granules
  • 1 Medium Egg, Beaten
  • 2tsp Of Cornflour

How To Make Hash Browns:

  • Firstly, gather together your ingredients and equipment, line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
  • Secondly, spray the low calorie cooking spray onto the parchment paper.
  • Next, grate the peeled potato’s into a large bowl.
  • Once grated, add the 1tsp of onion granules, 1 beaten medium egg and 2tsp of cornflour. Using your hand, mix together the ingredients (TIP: the mixture should become sticky as you mix).
  • Shape the potato mixture into six balls.
  • Spray the potato balls with low calorie cooking spray.
  • Place them onto the lined baking tray and place into the oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, spray the tops with the low calorie spray then turn them over. Spray the other side and cook for another 15 minutes.

That’s your Hash Brown prepared, cooked and ready to serve!

You can’t get easier than that recipe, can you? Plus, can we take a moment to appreciate how big these hash browns are – they are chunky, easy to make and went down a treat with my family.

Let me know if you give these a go yourself and what you think of them!

Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo

    Man I love hash browns! Before I moved to the UK I was the same, not sure if they were my thing or not, but to be honest to answer the debate question, I have them for whichever meal, I love them in a breakfast muffin with egg and bacon when I go to the market or for dinner on the side! I never made them myself so this recipe comes handy x

      Honestly, these are low calorie and are cooked in the oven so they’re much better for you than ‘normal’ hash browns which you can buy from a shop! These went down an absolute treat with the fam, I think you’ll love them Xo

    I love Hash Browns and these look so yummy!! I am half German, so we have Potato Pancakes for dinner and Hash Browns for breakfast. Yes, I know it’s basically the same thing, but what you call them determines when you eat them. Of course that could just be me! 🤣
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Hash browns are for . . . any time you want to eat them.
    I do not eat hash browns enough but, when I do, I go all out. Something about the buttery, crispy goodness with scallions and sour cream is too, too good.
    Thanks for sharing a mouth-watering recipe!
