This is a very simple recip0e with very little prep and cooking time, and the end result is, golden tasty hash browns with a good texture. This is a very mildly seasoned recipe using only salt, pepper, and onion so there is plenty of room to add extra seasoning if you wish to. This is a great side dish for breakfast, lunch, or supper.

Enjoy
2 medium russet potatoes (shredded)
1/2 medium onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oil for frying, or as needed
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Rinse shredded potatoes until water is clear, then drain and squeeze dry. Place shreds in a bowl, and mix in the onion, flour and egg until evenly distributed.
2. Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is sizzling hot, place potatoes into the pan and press into about a 1/2 inch thick layer with a spatula.
3. Cover the whole bottom of the pan, or make separate piles like pancakes. Cook until nicely browned on the bottom, then flip over and brown on the other side. (If the hash brown patties are large they cut very well after they are browned on one side so you can manage them a little easier)
4. Remove from pan, drain on paper towels- Season with salt and pepper, and serve hot.
