We mentioned Old Bay Hash Browns in our last entry. It’s an easy to make breakfast side dish and is flavored by our favorite spice blend, Old Bay Seasoning. Old Bay is a staple at our dinner table and we use it on lots of foods which we will continue to discuss here. While Old Bay is more usually associated with lunch and dinner dishes, it’s well suited for breakfast too. Our Old Bay Hash Brown Potatoes recipe will add something new to your breakfast fare.
Recipe for Old Bay Hash Brown Potatoes
- 2 – 3 medium potatoes
- 1 tbsp canola oil
- 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
- 3 tbsp chopped onion
- Wash and peel the potatoes
- Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, then place the flat side down on the cutting board. Slice each half lengthwise about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide. Cut again crosswise, 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide. If you can’t cook the potatoes immediately, place the diced potatoes in a pan and cover with water to prevent them from turning brown.
- Lightly oil a 9 or 12 inch skillet with the canola oil. Place over medium – low heat and then add the potatoes. Cover the pan, and reduce heat to low.
- Allow the potatoes to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn, and replace cover. Turn every 2 – 3 minutes until just starting to brown. It’s important to cook the potatoes in a covered pan so that they cook through.
- Add the chopped onion to the potatoes, stir and turn. Cook uncovered turning frequently until the onions are translucent. Make sure the pan isn’t covered or the moisture from the onions will soften the potatoes.
- Sprinkle with Old Bay Seasoning to taste.
