Hash Browns Ingredients and Substitutions

Make these simple baked hash browns with five–yes, five–pantry staple ingredients. Here’s a brief rundown of what you’ll need. Be sure to scroll to the recipe card for the full amounts and detailed instructions.

  • Potatoes. You can use white, red, Yukon gold, or russet potatoes for these crispy hash browns.
  • Olive oil. This is a dairy-free cooking fat that helps your potatoes crisp up to golden brown perfection.
  • Fresh dill. If dill isn’t for you, feel free to use an herb you love. Tarragon, thyme, oregano, parsley or cilantro are all delicious for breakfast potatoes.
  • Onion and garlic salt. This is an easy way to add umami flavor to your potatoes without any chopping. You can also substitute these with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.

How to Make Baked Hash Browns

Here’s an overview how to quickly prepare your vegan hash browns:

  • Prepare the potatoes: Start by scrubbing your potatoes well. Remember, they come from the ground, so get rid of any visible dirt.
  • Simmer and cool: Cover the potatoes with several inches of cold water in a large pot, then add salt. Bring to a simmer and cook till just tender. Drain the potatoes and let them cool and dry out. Then cube the potatoes and let even more moisture evaporate.
  • Season the potatoes: Sprinkle the diced potatoes with olive oil, dill, and onion and garlic salt, and toss gently to coat evenly.
  • Bake the hash browns: Then spread them in an even layer in a large baking dish. Bake the hash browns at 375°F for 20 minutes, or until they’re golden and crispy on all sides.

Tips for the Best Baked Hash Browns

Keep these things in mind for perfect breakfast potatoes:

  • Don’t overcook. Simmer until the potatoes are just fork-tender. They’ll continue to cook in the oven, so don’t let them get too soft in the water, or they may fall apart.
  • Dry before and after cutting. Let some water evaporate off right after you drain them. Then dice them and let them cool for another 15 minutes. This releases some of the moisture to help the hash browns get crispy.
  • Serve right away. For the best flavor and texture, serve the dill roasted potatoes fresh out of the oven. That’s when they’re at their crispiest. Keep reading for tips on making them ahead or storing leftovers so that they are still delicious.
  • Sauce them up. If you like a bit of a kick, serve your hash brown potatoes with hot sauce or a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes. Or, for more of an all-American breakfast, there’s nothing wrong with a squirt of ketchup.

Make-Ahead Hash Browns

However, you can prepare the recipe up until the roasting step and cover the potatoes in the fridge overnight. The next day, bake the casserole covered for 10 minutes at 375°F. Then remove the cover and bake for another 20 minutes.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. Reheat on the stove or in a 400°F oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy and heated through.

Can I Freeze Extras?

The cooked potatoes can be frozen for up to one month. Reheat from frozen in a 375°F oven for 20 minutes, or until heated through.

What to Serve With Hash Browns

For the simplest meal, I like to pair this breakfast side dish with a protein like fried or baked eggs and maybe some sausage or bacon. But you can also add them to a morning feast. Here are some dishes to add to your brunch menu with these hash browns:

    These are NOT hashbrowns!! Hashbrowns are grated potatoes, fried in a thin layer and browned to a beautiful crisp bite! These are country fries & they have nothing to do with hashbrowns except they are “semi fried taters!”
