HASH BROWNS

Originally the full name was 'hashed brown potatoes' (or 'hashed browned potatoes'), they are cooked potatoes chopped up, formed into cakes, (frequently chopped onions are added) and fried until golden brown. The name was gradually shortened to 'hash brown potatoes' (1945, H.L. Mencken), and finally around 1970 the most common name had become simply 'hash browns.'
