Can I Eat Hash Browns on a Keto Diet?
Unfortunately, no. If you are following a keto diet, traditional hash browns are a no-go. A single potato contains more carbs than a keto diet allows for in a day.
Luckily, we have alternatives like these cauliflower hash browns. They’re crispy and delicious and will totally satisfy your hash brown craving.
What Are Cauliflower Hash Browns Made Of?
- Cauliflower: You’ll need 1 head of cauliflower to yield the 3 cups of riced cauliflower listed. I recommend ricing your own cauliflower. Frozen pre-riced cauliflower is not fine enough for this recipe.
- Flour: I use a blend of almond flour and coconut flour. I don’t recommend subbing in other flours. This recipe is designed for these two specifically.
- Eggs: Eggs are needed to bind everything together.
- Seasonings: We’re seasoning with a simple combination of garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
- Oil: I like to use avocado oil for frying.
How to Make Hash Browns with Cauliflower
This delicious hash brown recipe takes right around 10 minutes to prep!
- In a bowl, mix together eggs, cauliflower rice, almond flour, coconut flour, and seasonings.
- Scoop 1/4 cup of the cauliflower mixture out of the bowl and form it into a patty. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, add oil, then gently place the patties into the skillet. You may need to cook in batches. Cook until golden-brown on each side, then serve or cool and store.
For extra crispy hash browns, rice your cauliflower, then wrap it up in a towel and squeeze out as much moisture as you can. Less moisture yields a crispier texture!
Can These Be Baked Instead of Fried?
Yes, but you will need to adjust the recipe. Baking doesn’t work the same way frying does.
If you do want to bake your hash brown patties, reduce the amount of eggs to two eggs and broil after baking on both sides to make sure they get nice and crispy.
These cauliflower hash browns can be served in any way you would serve classic hash browns! Enjoy them with:
- Air Fryer Bacon and Scrambled Eggs
- Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich
- Breakfast Prep Baked Egg Cups
- Bacon and Sweet Potato Frittata
How to Store
These hash brown patties store beautifully, so I love to make a ton and save them in the fridge or freezer for meal prepping!
Fridge: To store your hash browns in the fridge, let them cool completely, then store them in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Freezer: To freeze your hash brown patties, cook and let them cool completely. Lay them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until hardened. Once they’re fully frozen, transfer to a ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To reheat, warm on the stove, in the oven, or in the air fryer to heat and re-crisp.
