3-Ingredients: Hash Browns, Teriyaki Chicken + Shortbread

Our Fakeaway series was so fun and interesting to do! If you don’t know what I’m talking about then go and check out our previous posts. Despite all the free time we now all have whilst in lockdown, if there was any negative to draw from it it would be that most of the dishes were time consuming and surprisingly complex in terms of the number of ingredients they required.

With our next series, we wanted to strip it back and focus entirely on simplicity. They say that the best dishes are the simplest and we’re here to either prove or disprove that – with just 3 ingredients are next few posts will bring you meals or snacks that are as easy as 1, 2 3…

Be it alone with a dollop of ketchup or part of a big Saturday morning fry-up, these hash browns were amazing. The oil means we can’t claim they’re anything close to healthy, but the taste was top-notch.

Does anyone else rank hash browns as the number one ingredient in an all-English breakfast?

Hash Browns

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: Hashbrowns

Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes peeled & grated
  • 1 medium onion grated
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  • Grate the potatoes and onion into a tea towel (or kitchen tissue) and squeeze to remove any excess liquid. Place the mix in a large bowl.
  • Add the egg, (and season well with salt & pepper). Mix until combined.
  • Heat a good glug of oil in a frying pan and when the oil is hot, add your shaped potato mixture into the pan. Flip over once browned and crispy.
  • Eat straight away or add to your fry up 😉

Something a little bit more substantial now, with a chicken and rice dish which is brought huge flavour to by the humble soy sauce. It’s one of them which we’d probably spice up by adding X, Y and Z, but in its simplest form, it’s still a quick, easy and tasty mid-week lunch.

Teriyaki Chicken

Course: Lunch
Keyword: Teriyaki

Ingredients

  • 4 4 chicken fillets chunks
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Sear the chicken evenly in a pan.
  • Add the soy sauce and brown sugar, stirring and bringing to a boil.
  • Stir until the sauce has reduced and evenly glazes the chicken.
  • Serve with rice and/or veg, if desired!

Before the national flour shortage which has meant we now haven’t baked in weeks, another quick treat we rustled up in no more than half an hour are these shortbread biscuits. They do exactly what they say on the tin to be honest – simple, tasty, dangerously moreish.

    I love how simple these all are! I actually showed the hashbrowns instantly to my husband and we agreed that we’re going to be making them asap. We are big breakfast people – there is something about breakfast foods that are so much better than anything else!

    Hash browns are LIFE. They look soooo delicious. I’ve just finished my dinner but could definitely wolf down a plate of hash browns too! I didn’t realise they were so easy to make, tbh!

    What a perfect and simple meal! I love a good, crispy hash brown well fried on my griddle.
    The shortbread is the perfect light and not-too-sweet dessert to end the day on.
