Date Night Recipe // Homemade Mini Hash Browns

Written with love, by Sarah-Elizabeth Stone

Once in a while I become a bit of a recipe thief. There are days when I don’t feel like getting creative and simply beg, borrow or steal a recipe off of a friend or family member.  It’s fantastic to try something brand new when you know someone has worked out the kinks and made their very own mistakes already! It’s a bit of a cheat, but hey if you’ve got a friend who loves cooking as much as you do, why not be their guinea pig in the process!

That being said, I can’t take credit for this healthy and delicious recipe for your next date night. Use it as an appetizer or a breakfast in bed treat – either way these mini hash browns are to die for!
