Recipe: Amish Hash Browns Brazil style
Dinner time was coming close and I had no idea what I was going to make for the family. Since I hate throwing away food, I usually look in to see what will go bad first. I had some old potatoes and collard-greens (couve in Portuguese).
Since my boys hate mashed potatoes, the weirdos, I had to come up with something else. Thank you www.allrecipes.com!
I found my inspirations: Amish Hash Browns
. This is particularly great since I love me some breakfast for dinner. Here’s their recipe:
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 cups peeled and shredded potatoes
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 onion, minced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, salt and baking powder. Add potatoes, 1/3 cup of oil, eggs and onion and mix until evenly blended.
- Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop heaping tablespoons of the potatoes into the hot oil, flattening slightly. Cook until browned on the bottom and then flip and cook on the other side. Keep in a warm oven while frying the rest.
Since the whole point to this was to use the ingredients I had in the house, I substituted the cornmeal for farinha de mandioca. I also washed and finally chopped my couve (collard-greens), pre-cooked them a bit with some filtered water and olive oil in a pan, and mixed them into the mixture. Nothing makes a Mom happier at dinner than her kids eating something green.
I also cooked ONE semi-heaping tablespoon so that they weren’t too big. That also cut down frying time.
Served with a side of meat and BAM dinner is done! Both kids and Mr Rant ate everything and gave rave reviews!
Wow, just one more reason to love the Amish.
