I know it seems that hash browns should be pretty simple to make, but mine never turn out as crisp as the Cheesy Hash Browns at BeetleCat. What’s their secret? — Hilary Bartman, Atlanta
Chef Eddie Barrett was glad to share the recipe that demonstrates that the preparation of the potatoes is what makes the difference. At BeetleCat, the potatoes are prepped and then each batch of hash browns is made to order. The cheese is Kraft American Singles.
