Step 7:

Place a pan over heat and fill it with about 1 inch of oil. Let it heat until it reaches 350F. Once you have the right oil temperature, add the hash browns and fry for 6 minutes. Flip and fry the other side for 4 minutes.

Step 8:

Once crispy, place in a cooling rack to drain the oil completely. It quickly gets soggy when there’s a lot of oil.

Step 9:

Make the cheese sauce. Add flour and butter to a clean pan over heat. Mix constantly on low heat until browned. Stir in the milk then add the cheese. Mix until melted. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 10:

Serve the hash browns with the sauce. Enjoy!
