Learn how to make a delicious Potato Pie Crust using frozen hash browns. This easy-to-make, fool-proof crust is perfect for savory pies and there's no need to defrost the hash browns beforehand!


  • 16 ounce bag shredded hash browns, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon oil, plus more for the pie dish
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and place a rack in the lower part of the oven.
  2. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie dish. Add in the frozen hash browns, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and mix together to combine. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven. Using a spoon, carefully form the pie crust by pushing the potatoes up the sides of the pie plate to form the edges. Then, use the spoon to push down the potatoes on the bottom of the pie plate in a compact, even layer.
  4. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked through.
  5. The pie crust is now ready to use in your desired filling. It can sit for 1 day at room temperature, covered, before use.
