Diner Hash Browns

serves 4

3 small Russet potatoes
1 Tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons butter

Put a large skillet on medium-high heat.  Add the oil and butter.  Peel potatoes, rinse them, and dry them completely with a clean kitchen towel.  Place a clean dry kitchen towel (but not your favorite one, because the potatoes will stain it brown) on the counter, and put your box grater on it.  Grate potatoes on the large holes.  Remove grater, bring the edges of the towel together with the potatoes in the center and squeeze out water.  Repeat, moving the potatoes to a dry part of the towel.  On a large plate, place a double layer of paper towels. Spread the potatoes in an even layer and microwave on  high for 2 minutes.  Turn out the partially cooked potatoes into the hot skillet, pressing down with a spatula.  Cook for about 5 minutes, until as brown as you like on the bottom.  Turn in sections, adding more oil or butter for the second side if it seems necessary.  Cook for 4 or 5 minutes more until done.  Hold on a cookie sheet in a warm oven if necessary.
