Hash Brown Sticks from Del Taco features potatoes as its main ingredient. This dish takes a few simple ingredients that you can easily find in your kitchen. Let us know all the ingredients first.

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound Russet baking potatoes
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation

  1. To prepare this recipe, first peel the potatoes and grate them using the large holes of a box grater.
  2. The next step would be to squeeze out the moisture from the grated potatoes. It can be done easily with a potato ricer (or an orange or lemon press), using it much like you would do in a garlic press.
  3. Do this process in batches and only fill the ricer half-way with the raw grated potatoes. You can also wrap the raw grated potatoes in a clean kitchen tea-towel and squeeze it until you have squeezed out as much moisture as you can. 
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When the oil heats up to the point of shimmering (remember it should not be smoking), add the grated potatoes, spreading them out evenly along the bottom of the pan. 
  5. The potatoes should not be too thick in any one place—about 1/4 to a 1/2-inch thick. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the potatoes.
  6. After a few minutes, lift up one edge of the potatoes to check how well they are cooked. If they are golden brown, they are ready to flip. 
  7. Use a large metal spatula to flip the potatoes over all at once. You can also divide the large potato cake into halves or quarters and flip it easily. Continue to cook until they are golden brown on the bottom from the other side also.
  8. Use a metal spatula to cut into quarters and serve.

Del Taco Hash Brown Sticks

Del Taco's hash browns taste exactly like what you might think — an afterthought. We're not even sure they're trying here. Not that we blame them, considering the competition out there in fast food breakfast and can be awfully fierce, and most people who get up before 10:30 in the morning probably aren't aware Del Taco even has breakfast. They're also called hash brown "sticks," a word that should not, in our opinion, be applied to food unless it refers to that which holds together a kabob. Sticks are small and dry. Maybe it's psychological, but these feel pretty small and dry, as well. In fact, they're the exact same shape and size as something you'd find in your cat's litter box. But they are fairly crispy, and crispiness is generally acknowledged to be the signature of a good hash brown. That, and lack of grease. One Yelper claims that even though Del Taco served her lukewarm hash browns (there's nothing worse than a lukewarm potato product), at least they didn't give her mouth a "weird oily film" like some others do. We just wish they'd make them a little heartier, and a little more potato-y. In the meantime, we'll stick with tacos, thanks.

Great Breakfast Tacos

We love getting their breakfast tacos and adding the hash brown sticks into the taco. Just enough hot sauce to make it good but not too spicy. We also love their bean burritos and add sour cream. The staff is so nice.


The Most Popular Queries

How can I make the potatoes crispier?


Ans: You can make the potatoes crispier by adding 1 tablespoon of corn flour or rice flour to the potatoes. Coat the potatoes well with the rice flour and then fry in the oil. This will give you a crispier version of hash browns. Moreover, you can experiment by adding spices like chilli powder and pepper, which will add more fun to the dish.
