  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Peel the potatoes and grate them using the large holes of a box grater. Place the grated potatoes in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess moisture.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated potatoes, grated onion, beaten egg, flour, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine all the ingredients evenly.
  3. Shape the Hash Browns:
    • Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Allow the oil to heat up.
    • Take a handful of the potato mixture and shape it into oval or rectangular patties about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Fry the Hash Browns:
    • Carefully place the shaped patties into the hot oil, ensuring they are not overcrowded in the pan. Cook until golden brown and crispy on one side, then flip and cook the other side until crispy and golden.
  5. Drain and Serve:
    • Remove the cooked hash browns from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  6. Serve Hot:
    • Serve the hash browns hot and crispy with your favorite dipping sauce or alongside other breakfast items.

Parents Unhappy with Disney's NYC Christmas Village

Disney's The Santa Clauses' Winter Wonderland on the rooftop of Pier 17 is receiving negative feedback from local parents. Many have taken to social media to complain about various aspects of the attraction. One issue is the size of the ice rink, which parents describe as "tiny." Some parents have also expressed disappointment with the appearance of Santa, claiming he is too skinny and doesn't fill out the red suit. The most concerning complaint is regarding a slide that reportedly caused injury to a child. The slide was subsequently shut down by security, and an ambulance was called. Parents also noted the absence of any Disney presence inside the attraction, despite it being advertised as a Disney event. There were no Disney characters or trademarks to be found. Another complaint relates to the size of the skating area, which some parents felt was too small. Overall, parents are frustrated and disappointed with their experiences, citing it as a waste of money. In response to the negative feedback surrounding Disney's The Santa Clauses' Winter Wonderland on the rooftop of Pier 17, it is crucial for the organizers to address these concerns and take proactive steps to rectify the issues. Firstly, the size of the ice rink should be expanded to accommodate a larger number of skaters and provide a more enjoyable experience for families. This can help alleviate the dissatisfaction expressed by parents regarding the current size being described as "tiny." Additionally, steps should be taken to ensure the safety of all attendees, especially young children. The incident involving the slide and injury to a child is deeply concerning and should prompt a comprehensive review of all equipment in the attraction to prevent further accidents. Immediate action to address this issue and provide reassurance to parents is crucial for rebuilding trust in the event.
