This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation

This is part of the vegan alternative to the frying an egg on a cast iron skillet BB.



Here are a couple of ways to make hash browns in a cast iron skillet:
  - Shredded Potato Hash Browns
  - Sweet Potato Hash Browns

This how to cook hashbrowns on a cast iron skillet:



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - you must use a cast iron skillet
  - the hash browns must cover the entire skillet
  - the hash browns must make one large intact gob
      - a bit like you are making a giant potato chip from a bunch of grated potatoes
      - without sticking

To show you've completed this BB, you must provide:
  - a video that is no longer than 30 seconds long showing
        - grated potatoes going in
        - the first flip as one piece, and there is no sticking
        - the single piece being moved onto a plate - no sticking
        - cleanup
        - feel free to edit the video and even speed up the video
        - put the video on youtube and embed the video in this thread

Clarifications:
- All food prep and preservation BBs strictly prohibit plastic, teflon or aluminum touching the food at any point

Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

I think you're close. The intent is that the taters don't stick at all so that you can slide them off onto the plate without having to lift or free them from the pan with the spatula. The video misses that so I can't certify it. Plus you're missing the clean up shot.  Sorry

I followed a tip I saw about squeezing the excess liquid out of the grated potato, this worked well (unlike the first time I tried hash browns). I had to trim the video down to fit into 30 seconds so hopefully, I show everything needed.  I cleaned up using a damp cloth.  This is a new family favourite which we have on days where I want to have chips but not the oven on!

Hey Skip team! I'm so pleased with this hashbrown method! My kids love store-bought patties, but I hate the additives and preservatives. I've never squeezed out the excess spud liquid before! Now they cook so fast, without the squid-texture, haha! Big hit, I think it's a new fav. Here's our little video:

Note: I hereby certify that this badge bit is complete! (I didn't see 'clean-up,' but the skillet looked perfectly clean when removing the hashbrown, so I think it's good!)
