Homemade Hashbrowns

Almost everyone I know has experienced their potatoes growing “eyes” or sprouts.  So what do you do with them without throwing them away?  I was able to teach my mom this trick as well…..

Take the sprouts off the potatoes and bake in the oven at 350 for 1 hour.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Peel off the peelings and shred the potatoes with either a salad shooter or cheese grater.  Then measure out desired amount (I generally do 4 cups per bag) and put in freezer bag.  Freeze until ready to use.  Cook the hashbrowns on the stove like you would the store-bought kind.  You can also use them in breakfast casseroles or the overnight egg bake that I have posted here.
