Open the bag of frozen hash browns. Microwave them in the bag for 6 minutes to soften. Pour them in a bowl and add 1 stick of melted butter.
Add a generous amount of salt and pepper to suit your taste. Stir it up. Heat a nonstick skillet on medium and melt a little more butter in it. Pour the hash browns in the pan and press them down.
Do not stir the potatoes! Let them be. They are happier with minimal fussing from the cook. When the edges begin to get brown, put a plate over the skillet like this.
Holding the plate tight to the skillet, flip the potatoes over onto the plate.
Melt a little more butter in the skillet, and carefully slide the potatoes back into the skillet. When the edges are brown on the underside, they are ready. We gently lift them with a spatula to check for brownness.
Flip them onto a clean plate and serve.
