Crispy Hash Brown Patties Recipe Like the Restaurants Make

You know those crispy hash brown patties you can get at some of the fast food restaurants? The potatoes are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. You can make those at home!

This hash brown potato patties recipe is simple to make, though it does take a little time to chill the patties before frying. Don't skip this step! It helps keep the patties together when cooking. 

Serve this hash brown recipe with eggs, bacon, breakfast sausage, an omelette, pancakes, waffles ... whatever! They even make a fun side dish for dinner.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 45 minutes to chill
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes plus 45 minutes to chill 
Servings: 8


  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut in half horizontally
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • vegetable oil, for frying

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the potatoes into a pot of boiling, salted water. Cook for about 6 minutes (they will be only partially cooked). Allow to cool slightly, then grate the potatoes into a large bowl. 
  2. Add the eggs and flour. Season well with salt and pepper. Still until well combined. 
  3. Form the mixture into about eight rectangular patties (or whatever shape you want). Put the patties onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Put the baking sheet into the freezer for about 45 minutes.
  4. When ready to cook, heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet to 350 degrees F. Cook the patties a few at a time until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a paper towel and sprinkle with a little salt and black pepper. Repeat with remaining potatoes.

Yum! I love those crispy hash brown patties. We used to have hash browns as a side dish with dinner all the time. My dad (OK, I would do it, too) would stir a spoonful of mayonnaise into the hash browns. Guess it was kind of like a potato salad?

Mmm! That sounds really good, Donna. And how fun is it to make restaurant style hash browns at home?!
Crispy crunchy cravable. 😍

Can these be made in an air fryer?
Donna John
Yes! That's a great idea. I would spray them with cooking spray on both sides before air frying so they get crispy.
