If you've got a waffle iron, it is perfect for making hash browns. Just spread a thin layer of olive oil in it and then put the hash browns in to fry...no spatula flipping needed. Just turn the waffle iron over like you would for a waffle. Because of the indentations, you get more crispy parts than you do in a regular pan; and, without as much work. This trick works with an electric waffle maker, too; but, you don't flip that kind and it cooks twice as fast because both sides cook at the same time. :)

My favorite is Rösti, a hash brown dish that's very common in Zurich, Switzerland. That, and the chocolate truffles were my favorite things when I visited there. There was even a rösti shop at the train station that had about 30 variations of it.

You can add any number of things like bacon, other meats, egg, cream, cheese, etc., but we like them just fried in butter. Probably have them most often accompanying grilled boneless pork chops. [darn, now my mouth is watering]

The secret is to boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes, then remove from the stove, drain, cool in cold water for at least an hour. Grate some onion and the potatoes. When we make these at home, we use a food processor, but on the road a grater would work, just slower. When ready, heat a (cast iron) skillet and add a few pats of butter. Toss in the potatoes and onions, press down and leave alone, then cook on low heat for about 15 minutes until the bottom is evenly browned. Put a large plate over the skillet and invert the skillet so the potatoes end up on the plate. Put the skillet back on the stove and slide the potato "pancake" back onto the skillet, uncooked side down. Cook for another 10-15 minutes. When ready, cut into wedges and serve.

I'm sure this procedure could be adapted to a dutch oven, but I hate to speculate as I've never tried it.

Wow VijayGupta,
Those sound really good!! I am not the cook you are and probably a bit too lazy.
:oops:

I just wash the potato (using a brush), grate it (peeling and all), place the grated potatoes on a hot cast iron griddle with a little olive oil, use a spatula to round the patty and flatten it out, and cook the first side until golden brown ... then flip the patty over to brown the other side. It is quick, only taking a few minutes, and tastes great.

I think Slow has left the building. Says user does not exist?

Let's just say that Slowcowboy is taking a sabbatical of sorts. ...Don't know if he will come back.
