Glorious, glorious hash browns! Your breakfast needs them.
What your breakfast doesn’t need is pale, limp, unsalted, yuckiness. To avoid that horrible fate, you are going to need to plan ahead and do a little work the night before.
This version is buttery from the use of ghee. I like it like that, ymmv. If you are afraid of flavor, you can use some canola oil to fry them up instead of butter. Whatever you do, make sure you brown them well.
