HASH. Always reminds me of my Dad. He always appreciated a good hash. I can hear him saying it now with his super raspy voice. I love him dearly. We all know hash as a culinary dish consisting of chopped meat, potatoes, and onions fried. The name is derived from French: hacher, meaning “to chop”. Did you know it originated as a way to use up leftovers? By the 1860s, they called a cheap restaurant was called a “hash house” or “hashery. Canned corned beef hash became especially popular in countries such as Britain, France, and the United States, during and after the Second World War. Hash may be served for breakfast, lunch, or supper. When served for breakfast in the United States hash may come with eggs, toast, hollandaise sauce, or even baked beans. I decided to branch out and get a little creative with this hash recipe. This recipe includes lush green zucchini and yellow squash mixed with flavorful ground chicken. I would usually use ground turkey, but I wanted to mix it up a little bit. This was my first time working with plant-based eggs, and let’s just say I was impressed. HELLO eggs again! It’s truly one-of-a-kind. You can either add the red potatoes or choose to omit them if you wish. Do you have a special hash recipe to share? What do you like in your hash? Please do tell!
