My gulity pleasure (or one of them a least) is a hash brown. Fried, crispy, hot, tasty, this is the formula for an evil food.
This is my recipe for a healthier hash-brown which to be honest tastes more like a rosti. Either way it's a delicious treat.
Rosti/ healthy hash brown
For every 4 large potatoes, have 1 chunkily sliced white onion and 2 cloves of pressed garlic.
Boil the potatoes until they are half-cooked.
Put the potatoes under cold water to stop them cooking.
Grate the potatoes into a large mixing bowl.
Mix the grated potatoes with the sliced onion and garlic.
Either make into small patties, or cook as a whole like a Spanish tortilla in a large pan.
Fry until the sides are crispy and all of the potato is cooked.
This serves 4 greedy people, or 6 respectable sized portions.
Add your favourite herb mixes to change the flavour of the rosti.
Fry in goose-fat for an indulgent version- but if you were to do this, you might as well go the whole haul and deep-fry.
Add grated carrots and courgettes for a slight bubble'n'squeak style.
The great thing(s) about this recipe...
All the basic ingredients for this recipe are essential dry store-cupboard ingredients.
It doesn't take long to make this guilty-free classic British dish.
