Hash is a mixture of foods cut into small pieces. Corned beef hash is perhaps the best known recipe, typically made from cubed or shredded corned beef mixed with chopped onions and diced potatoes. If the potatoes are shredded or riced and pan-fried potatoes, they are often called hash browns.
In less affluent households, when there was no money for corned beef, potato hash would suffice. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious.
Here’s a vegetarian potato hash recipe with an optional strip of bacon for those who love their breakfast meat. Yield 4 servings, prep time 10 minutes, ready time 35 minutes, cook time 25 minutes.
