Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 3 large russet potatoes, washed (peel or leave the skin on)
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

Here's how to make them:

  1. Shred the potatoes using a cheese grater and put them into a bowl of water. Swish in the water a few times and drain. Put the potatoes into a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. 
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the potatoes to the skillet and spread so they are in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook about 4 to 5 minutes without stirring. Use a spatula and flip the potatoes over. Cook another 4 minutes or until potatoes are browned and crispy.
