Hash brown cheeseburgers

Listen up! Today we are discussing why everything is made better when topped with a crispy hash brown. Because would you just look at that golden crunchiness? I mean. Now I know that there’s nothing wrong with a classic cheeseburger. We all know it. We all love it. But every now and then we want something a little extra, don’t we? We want crunch and spice and everything nice. And I can guarantee that a crispy hash brown and pickled jalapeños make this cheeseburgers infinitely better.

Hash brown cheeseburgersThe key to a really good hash brown is to rinse grated potatoes until the water runs clear. This gets rid of any excess starch which could add a gluey texture to the finished hash brown. Dry the potatoes well and then mix with a little flour to bind them, a pinch of salt and pepper and that’s it. No egg necessary. Fry in really hot oil until golden brown and crisp and you’re done. It couldn’t be easier and believe me, it makes all the difference on these cheeseburgers.

Hash brown cheeseburgersBut I’m not the only one with clever burger ideas (if I do say so myself). My friend Rebecca from Displaced Housewife came up with unbelievable Burrata caprese burgers and can we just all take a moment to appreciate their beauty? I love everything about Rebecca’s blog. I first came across her blog on Instagram and then started following her on Snapchat and not only is she hilarious and has a garden to swoon over (serious greenfinger envy!), this chick knows how to cook. Her blog is filled with fantastic recipes for to-die-for cookies, delicious looking sandwiches and a breakfast nacho recipe that is very high-up on my to-do list. I’m so pleased that she agreed to be part of this blogger collaboration I started because I am completely obsessed with her and her blog.

    I call myself a food blogger but have never made hash browns? Shameful! These look crazy good!

      You must! They are so amazing home-made. My most favourite way of using them is in place of an English muffin in Eggs Benedict. So delicious!
