1 Russet Potato
1/4 tsp salt
Oil for frying
Peel your potato and rinse.
chop up into chunks and put in the food processor.
process until finely diced
heat on a plate in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds.
add salt and mix in.
let cool for 10 minutes.
put potato on sushi mat and roll like you would with sushi rice, if you don't have a sushi mat just use plastic wrap.
wrap your potato log in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for 20 minutes to cool and firm up.
take out of plastic wrap and use the same piece of plastic wrap to cover the potato log and cut into 1 inch pieces with a wet sharp knife, the same way you would cut a sushi roll.
deep fry pieces in hot oil until golden brown and enjoy.
Shape like patties to make fast food style hash browns.
Fry up a bunch and freeze them, then cook them in the oven when ready to use.
if you don't want to use a microwave you might be able to experiment with cooking potato bits in the oven at 350 until they have a sticky feeling. (I have not tried this but it should work)
