Expert Tips

Make these potatoes oven-ready the day before serving! Spread the potato mixture in the pan, then cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours before baking.

Make mine the cheesiest! If you like hash browns with lots of cheese, sprinkle with finely shredded Cheddar, mozzarella or pepper-packed cheese just before serving.
