  • 8 ounces prime rib Steak, Brisket, Ham, Bacon, Pork Any amount is fine...
  • 1 pound Russet Potatoes Diced
  • 8 ounces Small Onion diced
  • 3 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 + cup Any Leftover Vegetables Peppers, , Zuchini, Eggplant if you have them
  • 1 Tbs Tarragon substitute what you like, oregano, basil, thyme
  • Seasoned Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 8 large eggs
  1. Cut your leftover meats into bite size pieces.
  2. Rinse diced potatoes very well, then toss in a towl to remove any excess water. (If the potatoes have any water with them, they will cause the oil to splatter when added to skillet. By rinsing the potatoes you are removing the starch from the sides, this allows for a more crisp textured potato.
  3. In large skillet turn on heat to high and get pan very hot. Once it is hot add olive oil to pan and swirl it around to coat entire surface area.
  4. Once pan is coated reduce heat to medium high.
  5. Add diced onions, saute until translucent. (about 3 minutes)

  6. Add potatoes to pan, stirring occasionally so all sides are able to really brown and get crispy.
  7. Once potatoes are starting to brown add the vegetables, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper.  

  8. Once potatoes are thoroughly cooked and browned to a crisp 20-25 minutes, add your leftover meat and stir constantly until meat is warmed throughout about 5 minutes.

  9. Create small wells to fit a cracked egg into.  Place eggs into the well, cover with a lid and cook about 3 minutes until egg whites are solid white and the yolk is still soft.  Alternatively you can poach eggs while the potatoes are cooking and place them over the finished hash recipe at the end before serving. Serve immediately. 

  10. If you want a poached egg, follow recipe for poaching an egg in Frise Salad here https://www.westviamidwest.com/bacon-eggs-frise-salad/ and add to top of hash.

Recipe Notes

This is a great way to use up leftover meats and vegetables. There is no set quantities because its just a mix of things you have. My family really likes potatoes so I add a few extra potatoes. I have a friend who is a vegetarian, so when I'm making it for her I can substitute tofu for the protein if I have it, or I can just use a lot more vegetables. Because the meat goes in at the end, its easy to serve both hearty meat eaters and vegetarians with out sacrificing for either one.
