Though I am delayed with my third post under "Say Cheese" for BM#49, I thought this simple and quick snack will take care of that. I had previously made something similar to these hash browns as the Latkes. Latkes are traditionally eaten by Jews during the Hanukkah festival and the recipe is elaborate when you compare it with Hash Browns.
There is actually no recipe for Hash Browns, it's just shredded, grated, or riced potatoes, cooked on low flame, to get a delicious, flaky small pancake. This is traditionally eaten for breakfast in the US. When a binding ingredient is added to this and made, it's called a pancake. Or you can call it patty as well.
Since my theme was about cheese, I had to incorporate cheese into this. Trust me, this turns out to be so sinful! I added Cheddar Cheese to the grated, cooked potatoes, to bind them. Once it was completely crispy and done, I topped it with Mozzarella cheese. You can simply keep it on the pan, within minutes your cheese melts and you have heaven in hand, quite literally!
I was actually upset that I had to wait to dig in and completed clicking the final picture as quickly as I could and went straight into dipping in that sauce and enjoying it. Yes, I know this is basically for the Kids to approve, well the kid in me, surely enjoyed this feast!

How to make the Cheese Hash Browns
I have read recipes, where the potatoes are boiled and then riced before making has browned. Boiled potatoes will be more in shape when we make the hash browns.
