This will also give you a pretty presentation because it gives you a nice perfect circle....of course you can always break them up if you want.
That sounds like swiss rosti I love them and they are easy to make.

I don't make them often, but when I do I try to get as much moisture out of them as possible before frying...I like the results I get with Cast Iron the best.

Uncle Bob has the secret. Shred the raw potatoes and dry them thoroughly. That includes wrapping them in a towel and twisting the towel to wring out as much moisture as possible.

That will give you a grispy brown hash brown.

I wonder if salad spinner would do the job of drying the potatoes.

Never owned a Salad Spinner --- It may work to some degree --- The trick is to squeeze the day lights out of them The more moisture you remove the better...

Have Fun!.
