Weeaboo Hash Browns

30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)

I discovered this recipe by accident, one night while I was trying to finish off a large amount of rice and had no other food. The name was originally utter as a joke, but I decided to work with it. For those not familiar with the term, Weeaboo is normally a derogatory term for a Caucasian person who is obsessed with the Japanese culture, and is commonly applied to many Anime fans in the US. In this case it's used in good humor, and not to chastise the people it may or may not apply to.You'll want to make a batch of rice, depending on how many of these you want. These are done in the style of McDonald's hashbrowns, which are served in large solid clumps and usually eaten by hand. I'll be using a small example batch for this recipe. Multiply the measurements to fit the amount you wish to yield from the recipe.
