What exactly is "hash", by the way? I've always wondered (all '35' of my years alive).Websters defines it as a "hodgepodge, jumble, or confused muddle". ...Which doesn't really sound very appetizing, no offense.
Depends on where you get it. It's generally either shredded potatoes (or even leftover potatoes from last night's side dish: roasted w/ veggies or mashed) or corned beef (or sausage or similar meat) or a combination of the two sauteed/pan-fried with peppers, onions, and whatever else is on hand. Basically, it is a hodgepodge and, if made well, a mighty delicious one.That's how I've always seen it in the Northeast at least. Could be different in other parts of the country.
Hash is a thick stew topped with potatoes (traditionally sliced). Corned beef is the king of hash. Not to be confused with Lancashire hotpot or cottage pie.I can't help but notice that the house speciality is a burger topped with 2 eggs, 2 links (sausages I assume) and 2 pieces of bacon. It should be called "The Heart Attack".
I love the "Roast Beef Hash" at Bob Evans restaurants. Check it out.
They must follow the lunar calendar.
