Red Flannel Hash
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
A traditional New England recipe--the "red flannel" refers to the inclusion of beets. Frequently served for breakfast or lunch using the left-overs from a New England boiled dinner the night before. Traditionally each serving is topped with a poached egg, but this is optional. A "quick and dirty" approximation can be had by combining a can of corned beef hash and a can of beets, chopped, and frying in a skillet. Some people top it with catsup. Preparation time does not include pre-cooking the vegetables, since leftovers are so commonly used. Tasty, but definitely not for people avoiding fat or salt.
