Grilled hash browns let you enjoy the wonderful flavors and crispy texture of hash browns, with far less guilt!
These grilled hash browns require very little fat, so you get all the flavor without the extra calories. I’ve been making them often lately – almost once a week on Sundays. I love hash browns – who doesn’t? And I’m so delighted that this recipe gives me a way to enjoy them with less guilt.
Are grilled hash browns tasty?
Yes! They are delightfully crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The first time I made them, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were.
How to make grilled hash browns
Scroll down to the recipe card for the detailed instructions. I use my George Foreman grill in this recipe. I adore this grill and find many uses for it. Grilled hash browns are definitely one of my favorite ways to use it! I also use it often when making grilled chicken breast and sweet and spicy grilled chicken tenders.
How to serve grilled hash browns
It’a classic breakfast food. So you can pair it with any breakfast food that you like. Such as pancakes (I like these gluten-free almond flour pancakes), breakfast sausage patties, oven bacon, or soft-scrambled eggs.
Is this a healthy recipe?
Bottom line: as long as it’s not something you make on a daily basis, and as long as you eat it in moderation, I think it’s fine. Provided you don’t need to be on a low-carb diet.
What about leftovers?
I rarely have leftovers when making this dish. But when I do, I find that they keep okay in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 3-4 days. Although they don’t taste as good as when served fresh. You can reheat the leftovers in the microwave on 50% power.
Grilled Hash Browns
- 1 lb. unpeeled russet potatoes (2 medium)
- 1 medium onion
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
- Heat a dual-contact indoor grill such as a George Foreman grill. Or heat a double-burner grill pan over medium-high heat.
- Wash and peel the potatoes and onion. Shred in your food processor using the shredding attachment. Mix together and place in a colander to drain. Press on them with your hands to extract as much water as possible, then extract even more moisture using paper towels. The drier the mixture is, the crispier the hash browns will turn out.
- Brush the grill surfaces with oil. Avocado oil is a healthy oil that can withstand high temperatures, so it's a good choice.
- Place the potato mixture on the grill, spreading it evenly, then pressing on it to flatten. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Close the lid (if using a George Foreman grill) and grill for 10-15 minutes.
- Use a large spatula to transfer the partially cooked hash browns to a cutting board. Brush the grill again with more oil, flip the hash browns to the other side and grill 10-15 more minutes, until browned and crispy on both sides.
