Any of the following can be added to the potatoes to vary the flavor: chopped parsley, chives, bacon, hard-cooked egg, grated cheese, and garlic.
Shred boiled potatoes on the large holes of a hand grater, or use a machine. Prepare as in basic recipe. Potatoes should be very crisp on the outside but soft inside. (These are often called hash brown potatoes but, strictly speaking, hash browns are made with chopped potatoes, as hash means “to chop.”)
