I always ate the deep fried hash browns and even though they taste yummy, the amount of oil they absorb is alarming. So, I tried to use the same ingredients and bake it like a casserole and family loved the cheesy, crispy hash browns that are more healthy. So, we have an option now.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes 
Bake Time: 30 minutes 
Serves : 3-4
Potatoes: 3 large 
Shallot : 1 chopped finely 
Cilantro: 1/4 cup chopped finely 
Egg : 1
Shredded Cheddar cheese: 1/4 cup
Black pepper: 2 tbsp 
Salt to taste 
Wash, peel and grate the potatoes. Add some salt and mix well for 1 minute. Let it rest for 10 minutes. 
Pre heat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Drain all the water from that came from the potatoes.
Add all the ingredients and mix well.
Spoon the mixture into a baking pan, 9×9 and press it down tight. 
Bake for 30 minutes.
Take it out, cut into desired pieces and serve with ketchup.
