Cheesy Crispy Hash Brown 香脆芝士马铃薯饼

Cheesy Mozerella Hash Brown

Loaded with cheese and cabbage, coated with bread crumbs





Ever since my little boy started to like crispy food, I had been making hash brown myself. I never buy frozen hash brown that added with loads of unnecessarily ingredients... food additives and preservatives that's what I mean. 

My boy's favorite is always the original hash brown that I made using only potatoes, egg and cheese. But sometimes, I'd add some finely chopped cabbage in it..yeah, just want him to eat more vegetables. I personally like the cabbage version, but little boy still prefer no-vege-added hash brown. :)

My version of hash brown is less oily, less salty and more healthy. I have tried many ways of making hash brown. Plain hash brown without any coating, hash brown coated with rice crumbs, hash brown coated with bread crumbs, some added with flour and other ingredients. The version that I like most is the one coated with bread crumbs because I like the crispiness. Coated with bread crumbs, I don't deep fried with oil because the bread crumbs would absorb lots of OIL while deep frying. When I have time, I pan-fry with a little oil and when preparing hash brown for breakfast, I normally use my Tefal Actifry, air-fried hash brown with no mess in my kitchen! Or alternatively, you can bake the hash brown with oven, but it will take much longer time. 


Ingredients: Make 4 hash brown

2 Medium Potato (Peeled and shredded)



1 Egg
50g Shredded Cheese Mix (Mozzarella and Cheddar or Pizza Plus, amount can be increased if the mixture is too wet)
Optional: 50g Cabbage (Finely chopped)


Some Garlic Salt and white pepper for seasoning
Optional: Some Bread Crumbs or Rice Crumbs for coating
Some Olive Oil/ Cooking spray for cooking 

Method:
1. Squeeze the shredded potatoes to dehydrate it. Put in a clean bowl.



2. Add cabbage if used. If not using, skip this step.



3. Add egg. 



4. Add some garlic salt and pepper. Mix to combine.




5. Add shredded cheese. Mix to combine.



6. If the mixture is too dry, reduce the cheese. If the mixture is too wet, add more cheese.



7. If using bread crumbs/ rice crumbs, layer some generous amount of bread crumbs/ rice crumbs on a clean plate. Use an ice cream scoop, scoop the potato mixture and put it on the bread crumbs, shape as desired and make sure the hash brown is well coated. (There's no in-progress pictures shown here because I need two hands to get this job done as quick as possible)



For air-fry method using Tefal Actifry:
8. Grease the Tefal Actifry pan with some olive oil. Place the hash brown on the pan and gently press to flatten. Spray with cooking spray. Cook for 6 minutes, flip over and continue to cook another 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

Please take note that the cooking time is depends on the size of the hash brown. Do adjust accordingly.

Alternatively you can bake the hash brown in a preheated oven 180'C, bake until golden brown. I never use this method before because the cooking time is too long for me. I like something quick and easy :)
