Mennonite Gold Hash and Eggs

Mennonite Hash

I’ve always been frightened of HASH. My concept was of a greasy block from a can, something similar to dog food. I was having brunch with my friend Laurie Figone who has her own cooking show out in California “Cooking with Laurie” http://www.cookingwithlauriefigone.com/and she introduced me to real hash. A simple recipe from one of my vintage cook books caught my attention. I twisted it up a little bit. This deserves a Hash Tag, don’t you think? (insert chuckle here)

Recipe inspired by: Bethel College Women’s Association; First Edition edition (1974) You can purchase this book on Amazon for about $50. It’s one of my favorite finds because I only paid a few dollars for this copy!

To start off with, I happened upon a happy little roast beef for an astonishing price of $5.00. Then baked it in the oven the night before, with seasoned salt and pepper. You could use an inexpensive steak or a left over pot roast.

Next, chopped and boiled some beautiful gold potatoes until tender. Added some melted butter and warm milk a little at a time, gently pressing until creamy but still lumpy.

Look at those gorgeous potatoes and that Sweet Vidalia Onion! Did you see the Gift Basket Prize from Black Gold Farms?

So Buttery!

Cubed up my cold cooked roast beef and chopped it with a Sweet Vidalia Onion. Did you see the fun gift basket you can win from Flavors of Summer?

Mix the meat/onion with the potatoes and we’re almost done. Season to taste with seasoned salt.

You don’t even need to clean your food processor. Just throw in a few slices of bread and pulse until crumbly. Stir your crumbs with some melted butter.

Stir together the Meat & Potatoes, sprinkle on the bread crumbs. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.

Fry up an egg. Let’s eat.
It’s like the toast, the hash browns, the steak and the egg, all in one dish.
