  • Author: Gregs Vegan Gourmet

  • Yield: 4 large hash browns


Making vegan hash browns at home is super easy and the best way to enjoy McDonald’s style hash browns from the comfort of your own home. All you need is 20 minutes.


  • 3 large russet potatoes peeled and chopped into thirds
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 3 tbsp vegan JustEgg or homemade JustEgg
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for shallow frying
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium pot over high heat, parboil the potatoes until slightly softened on the exterior. Remove from heat and cool in cold water before shredding into a large bowl with a box grater.
  2. Add cornstarch, salt, pepper and vegan egg to the potato mixture. Stir until fully combined.
  3. On a large baking sheet, form the potato mixture into four rectangle hash brown patties. (This calls for making the hash browns larger, but you can form them into 6 equal smaller patties instead).
  4. Refrigerate the patties for an hour.
  5. Bring a medium pan with oil to heat and fry each side of the hash browns evenly until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Remove from heat and set aside to let cool.
