Baked Hash Browns

My family is a big fan of hash browns. Every single person in the house loves them, and that is rarely the case unless it is chocolate or some type of candy. The problem when I make crispy hash browns is that my pan is not large enough. Now sure, I could break out the electric flat griddle, but I don’t. One, large pan of hash browns does not feed all five of us, and trust me, there are looks of disappointment when there are no more hash browns to be eaten with remaining pancakes and bacon.

How to Bake Hash Browns Recipe

So this past week when we decided to have breakfast for dinner (an all-time favorite of ours), I decided to attempt baking hash browns on a large sheet pan. Not only was I able to use the whole bag and feed everyone, but I was also able to provide that crispy exterior while keeping the potatoes tender inside.

Let’s get started.

  • 30 oz bag of Ore-Ida Country Style Hash browns, frozen
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Sheet of parchment paper

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Line your sheet tray with enough parchment paper to cover the top of the tray.

Pour the olive oil over the hash browns, and sprinkle the salt and pepper over the top. Get in there with your hands and mix the hash browns, ensuring that you get some of the oil and salt and pepper to coat those potatoes.

Place the tray in the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove from the oven, and give them a toss. Place back in the oven and cook another 15 minutes, or until crispy.

When you are ready to serve, simply slide the hash browns off the parchment paper onto your plate or bowl, and dig right in. Crispy, and tender, these baked hash browns satisfied everyone at the dinner table, and I will make these again. Have you tried baking hash browns before? Do you prefer the skillet or the baking method?

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Hey Dax, I just moved to the Mpls. area and was wondering if you’re a chef for Palermo’s pizza? There can’t be too many guys in Milwaukee with the name Dax!! If so, say hi to Lori and Giacomo!

    1. Hehe. Hey Lisa, no, I’m no chef for Palermo’s, however I am very familiar with their pizza and location by Miller Park. I’ve been wanting to visit their plant and restaurant, so next time I visit, I will let them know you say hello to Lori and Giacomo!
