Potato 101: Hash Browns
Whether you call them hash browns, home fries, fried potatoes, or skillet fries, the best are made with Idaho® Potatoes. The Idaho® Russet Burbank or Norkotah varieties are ideal for hash browns with their satisfying taste and texture. The high solids content provides a distinct texture and hearty flavor. They also absorb less fat in cooking. Idaho® Hash Browns also undergo less shrinkage for improved yield and plate coverage due to their low moisture content. Their low sugar content ensures that they will cook to a golden-brown color.
