Crispy Hash Browns are so fast and easy to make, with just three ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
First, peel the potatoes.
Wash them under cold water and pat dry with a kitchen towel.
Grate them in a large bowl.
After that, working in batches, squeeze as much moisture as possible. Either use your hands or wrap the potatoes in a kitchen towel and squeeze.
Add the squeezed potatoes to a different large bowl.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil and once shimmering add the grated potatoes.
Arrange them in a layer that is about 1/4-inch thick.
Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika if using.
Cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden-brown, then flip and cook more until crisp.
Remove from heat and serve immediately topped with an egg and bacon on the side.
