Don't eat greasy fast food potatoes! Make your own potato side dish at home and save yourself money and calories. Potato Squares are sure to please!

What You'll Need

  • 5 large all-purpose potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 medium onion, cut into large chunks
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine the potatoes, onion, eggs, oil, parsley, salt, and pepper. Process until the vegetables are coarsely chopped then add the flour. Process just until the flour is mixed in; pour into the baking dish.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the top is golden. Let cool slightly then cut into squares.


  • Serving Tip: This cuts best after being allowed to cool for about 20 minutes. It's a perfect make-ahead side dish because it reheats so well.

Did you figure out if you need that much oil or not? Also could you use real butter or olive oil instead? Thanks

Gee, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt isn't much at all, for 2 pounds of potatoes and 2 eggs. But why would anyone say that there's they aren't greasy, when the recipe calls for TWO THIRDS OF A CUP of OIL. Way too much oil.... more than you would get if you deep fried the same amount of potatoes!

The others are right cut out salt all together and I added a little grated cheese, these were the best I have ever eaten thank you for no grease potato sq.'s. They even rival Cracker Barrels hash brown casserole, but I think they are a little better than their's.

I would leave out the salt, and use Mrs. Dash instead in the flavor of my choice. If you do this leave out the pepper as well, because Mrs. Dash usually has pepper in it. Hope this helps. I would use about 1 Tsp. of Mrs. Dash.

I hope that there is a way to cut down on the sodium and still have the flavor.
