How to Make 3-Ingredient McDonald’s Hash Browns at Home
You can have All-Day Breakfast again—at home!
We’ve been pretty bummed since we found out that McD’s all-day breakfast may not be returning to menus. While some locations are still secretly serving it up if you ask, we miss being able to get our hands on a Sausage McMuffin and hash browns for an easy breakfast-for-dinner or midnight snack!
While the McDonald’s breakfast menu in Canada might include a bagel smeared with Nutella, there’s no doubt that the famous hash browns are beloved around the world. So when we came across this easy copycat recipe with just 3 ingredients, we knew we’d found a winner!
The Best Copycat McDonald’s Hash Browns Recipe
This recipe by TikTok user @saucedupfoods gives you an easy way to make perfectly crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside hash browns—and it’s super quick! All you need are russet potatoes, an egg and some cornstarch.
- Grab two russet potatoes, peel them, cut them into thirds and boil them for about 8 minutes. This parboils or partially cooks them.
- Let them cool and grate them.
- Add one egg and a tablespoon of cornstarch. Mix it up, then shape the hash brown patties on a tray covered in parchment paper. Pop them into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
- Fry them on high heat and voila! You’ve got hash browns ready for breakfast.

Make It a Breakfast Feast
And if you won’t settle for anything lesser than the original breakfast, swing by your local McD’s before 11 a.m., and don’t forget to grab a blueberry muffin on your way out.
