My kids finally like potatoes.
That only took nine years.
I was starting to seriously question whether there was a mix-up at the hospital.
But here we are – better late than never. And I am so filled with happy. Because this opens up such a world of possibilities for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Can I get an amen?
Naturally, they still gravitate toward the shredded and crispy (a la tater tots, french fries, and hash browns), as opposed to mashed or baked. But they’re coming around there, too.
These hash browns are their favorite. Sometimes I serve with eggs and bacon. Other times, all on its own. And they seem perfectly ok with that. Progress!
Hash Browns with Everything Seasoning
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil , divided
- 4 cups shredded hash browns , thawed if frozen (I used 1 package refrigerated Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns)
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
- 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
- 1-2 tablespoons everything seasoning
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Add the shredded hash browns to the skillet. Spread in an even layer; press down lightly with spatula. Cook for about 6 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. With the spatula, turn potatoes over. Cook for an additional 6 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
- Divide among 4 plates. Top with greek yogurt, scallions, and a sprinkle of everything seasoning, to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Reader Questions and Reviews
All set to go with this dish. I bought the Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns (love them, too) and minced onion. I had all the other ingredients on hand. Somehow between the market and my kitchen, the minced onion disappeared. I’m hoping I’ll find it one day. Since I didn’t want to wait another minute to try this out, I used a bit of onion powder just to get some onion flavor. I’m sure the minced onion will be better, but it was so good, we not only put it on the potatoes but also flavored the chicken I had prepared.
Looks like this will be a staple on my shelves.
The dried onion would be better than onion powder, but I like that you improvised. So glad you made it and loved it…and yes, the Everything Seasoning is awesome on so many things!
In the future, if your kids decide they don’t like any potato recipes, you can feel free to send their servings my way. Especially if there is everything seasoning involved!
haha. . my kids don’t like mac and cheese! I mean, come on . . what kid doesn’t like mac and cheese. . :P love love love the everything seasoning!!! genius!!
Wait. Your kids didn’t like potatoes? How is that even possible?
Hashbrowns are my fave! I want to make these right now but I had to throw away all my potatoes because they were funky. Eww.
I first learned about Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns from a previous posting and was very impressed with the product. I will definitely try this recipe.
what would I do without potatoes, and YES to has browns, now I’m starving
Ok my mind is officially blown. I love everything seasoning and I can’t resist crispy hash browns!!
Ok. Not liking potatoes is even stranger than not liking chocolate. But, then and again, I spent the first 20 years of life allergic to chocolate, so I don’t have the love for it like I do for my potatoes. I sing sonnets about potatoes (and rice). Glad that they’ve seen the light!!
THEY FINALLY LIKE POTATOES! *tosses confetti*
These look amazing. Also, there are people who don’t like potatoes? How can that be!!!!
I know. I’m as perplexed as you are!
Will you please come make these for my breakfast this morning? Whoa they look amazing!
Um, yeesss! If only you lived closer!
I’m not the biggest potato lover, but these? I would demolish! I would definitely put an egg on it and call it a full meal :)
Ah yes. A runny egg makes everything better!
