Hash Browns!!



The Studly Hubby has a BIG LOVE for hashbrowns. Every chance he gets he grates a bunch of potatoes up and fries them in a pan with a carefully calculated strategy and then analyzes and refines the results for next time.

This morning the Studly Hubby was grating up a bunch of freshly received veggie box Russet potatoes when I realized this is turning into a LifeLong Quest for the Perfect Hashbrowns. In fact, I was thinking maybe what we should do is go on a world-wide mission to find the Perfect Hashbrowns. As we were discussing this, we realized that we have had very few Perfect Hashbrowns in our lives. Worse, we don't even really know where to go for Perfect Hashbrowns. Which part of the world? Which restaurants?

In our past we could think of only one place that had nearly Perfect Hashbrowns, French Meadows in Minneapolis, but unfortunately they only made these for a short time and then switched chefs or recipes or something because they weren't good after that. The Studly Hubby also claimed someplace in the Homeland of Iowa also made Perfect Hashbrowns but that was also short-lived and he doesn't even remember the name of the place now.

I would say that McDonald's hashbrowns are nearly Perfect Hashbrowns but the Studly Hubby shut that down pretty fast.

Have you ever had Perfect Hashbrowns? Do tell!

I love McDonald's hashbrowns! Probably because I like my hashbrowns really crispy. Yum!

Hi Sandra! Nice to meet you. Fixen: you are making me want some McDonald's hashbrowns now, I was successfully holding the temptation at bay until you said 'crispy'...
