  • 2-3 russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • Using a cheese grater, grate all potatoes until completely shredded. Use the large holes of the grater to get nice sized shreds.
  • Place potato shreds on paper towels and remove all excess liquid from them until dry.
  • Heat butter and oil over medium high heat in a large skillet (add more butter and oil if the entire surface of the skillet is not covered).
  • Once butter/oil mixture is hot, add potato shreds to pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Once a golden brown crust develops on the bottom of the potatoes, flip them on the other side.
  • Once golden brown on both sides, season to taste and serve hot.



Make sure you really take the time to completely dry your potatoes removing as much moisture as you can to ensure that they dry until golden brown and super crispy.
