Crispy, well- seasoned, hash brown patties pan fried and served with a sprinkling of salt! Make them  ahead of time, and pull them out of the freezer when you’re ready!


  • 5 Russet Potatoes, shredded
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 C Almond meal (or all purpose flour)
  • 1 tbsp Arrowroot Powder (or cornstarch)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 6 tbsp ghee


  1. Shred the potatoes. Transfer to a medium bowl lined with a tea towel. SQUEEZE all the moisture out of the potatoes.*
  2. Dump the potatoes in a clean bowl. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Add beaten egg, almond meal, and arrowroot powder. Mix everything together with your hands.
  3. Form small patties (approx. 1/2 C of potato mixture). Place on a sheet tray till read to fry.
  4. Preheat a skillet on medium heat with 2 tbsp ghee. Add patties. Make sure you don’t crowd the pan!
  5. Cook for 5 minutes undisturbed, then flip! Cook other side for approximately 4-5 minutes. Remove to paper towel lined tray. Season with additional salt, to taste.
  6. Repeat with remaining patties adding an additional tbsp of ghee to the skillet as necessary.


* A quicker method I have since discovered is to rinse the shredded potatoes in cold water and run through the salad spinner!

** To Freeze additional patties, lay them flat on a tray and place them in the freezer for at least an hour. Once frozen solid, transfer to a freezer- safe bag.
