DIY Hashbrowns

Have you ever bought a large bag of potatoes and ran out of uses for them? Have you ever left your potatoes lying around too long that the eyes started to grow?

Step 4: Throw in shredded potatoes into pan. Spread them out in a single layer. Add 1-2 tablespoons of spread and evenly distribute it. Wash your cheese grater and peeler after this; you do not want them to sit around unless you want to clean up oxidized potato bits.
