How to Make Homemade Frozen Hash Browns

Potatoes are one of the vegetables you don’t normally freeze. As a rule, they turn black and get weird. But these homemade freezer hash browns turn out wonderfully and are so simple to make.

They are a great way to use up potatoes if you have more than you could use before they go bad. I know that properly stored potatoes can last quite awhile but that isn’t always the case.

What makes these hash browns freezer friendly? They are made from baked potatoes. Already cooked potatoes do much better in the freezer than their raw counterparts

This post is more technique than a recipe. I will be sharing delicious ways to use these homemade frozen hash browns here and there so never fear.

Here are a couple recipes I already have that these would be great in hash brown casserole and Pork Chops in Gravy in Potatoes.

You could also cook these just like you would any frozen hash browns from the store. It’s up to you.

Just a couple of notes: You will need to use a box or other hand grater. A food processor will turn the potatoes to mush. I speak from experience here. You don’t have to worry about peeling the potatoes because it will pretty much separate once your start grating

The number of potatoes you cook doesn’t really matter. You could always just toss a couple of extra in the oven the next time you make baked potatoes but the number is the recipe is a good stock the freezer number depending on the size of the potato.
