  • 1lb. white potatoes, peeled
  • 1 large white onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

Step by Step:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and butter a large baking sheet.
  2. Toss the potatoes with the salt and leave to stand in a medium bowl for 5 minutes. Squeeze as much moisture as possible out of the potatoes and drain on paper towel.
  3. Put the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and add the potatoes. Toss until the potatoes and onions are evenly coated.
  4. Divide the potato mixture into 4 equal portions and pile on the baking sheet with at least a 2 cm space in between.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the hash browns, flatten with the back of the spatula, and turn the oven down 350°F. Bake for 35 minutes or until the hash browns are soft inside.
