Once in a while I write about recipes that I really like and that tend to be easy to make, and the other night I was wracking my brain trying to come up with something for supper and “Wham, bam, thankyoumam”, it came to me: Hash.
Super simple meal that only has 4 main ingredients (I like those the best), takes little time to prepare (bonus points*) and contains 2 food groups that Rick loves: meat and potatoes (those are food groups, right?).
Here’s what you need:
Ground sausage (any kind – plain, Italian, moose**)
Potatoes (I like to use leftover home fries)
Here’s what you’re gonna do: Brown up the sausage and onion together and drain. While those are set aside, cook up your taters. When those are done, mix in some mushrooms. Add the sausage and onion mixture and heat everything through. DONE!
What, you expected something complicated? I thought you knew me!
Here comes a little secret ingredient that takes it over the top: Liquid Smoke. Throw in one or teaspoons of this lovely liquid after everything is mixed together and you have just entered Yummyville.
Now, you’ll notice I didn’t tell you how much of each ingredient you need. Bwahahahaha! That’s because you get to determine how much you like depending on your taste (and number of people you are feeding)!
Don’t have any left over potatoes? Use frozen Southern Style Hash Browns (you know, the tiny square thingys). Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out! Want a bit of color? Add some green or red pepper.
Personally, I add a little garlic, chives and Lawry’s to mine and I’m a happy camper.
Now go and make some hash for your family for supper tonight. Because, you’re like, drooling on your keyboard and it’s kinda gross.
*Double triple bonus points for this recipe from the fact that it is adapted from something my Mom used to make for us when I was a kid. She worked her arse off but always had something hot and nummy for us for supper.
**Really? You got moose? Let me know how that tastes, ‘K?
