  • 4 – 6 potatoes
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Boil the potatoes in a pot of water until tender but still firm. Peel and chop into rough squares and add to a mixing bowl. Add flour and milk powder, season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Beat egg with melted butter and add. Mix with a spoon but not too much, so that it still has texture. Place baking paper on a tray and add the mixture. Spread it out and score cut marks for each square. Freeze until solid. Break into sections and pack in a bag and keep frozen. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and cook the hash browns from frozen for 2 minutes on each side and drain on a grid. Cool and cook again for 1 minute to crisp.

Serve with 2 slices of bacon, a poached egg, hollandaise and chopped parsley.
