Hash (as in the dish you can order in diners) gets its name from the French word hacher, which means to chop. One popular hash recipe is made by reheating pre-cooked chopped meat, onions and potatoes in a cast-iron skillet. Back before most American households had a refrigerator, making hash was a great way to use any leftover meat and vegetables from previous days. So while hash was a favorite dish, it also helped families save a lot of money…
These days, everyone still loves hash, but even chefs at fancy restaurants have gotten in on serving gussied-up hash recipes. You’ve probably heard of corned beef, beef brisket, and pork hash. But what duck confit or chorizo?
For our hash recipe below, we suggest using smoked sausage with flavorful ingredients like onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes, as well as any leftover onion, potatoes, and spinach. But you should also use fresh ingredients from the farmers market, like meat and mozzarella cheese.
The Hillshire Farm smoked sausage in this recipe is made from premium cuts of pork, turkey, and beef. You can also make your homemade hash with chicken smoked sausage with roasted garlic or beef smoked sausage, both of which are best-selling Hillshire Farm smoked sausage products.
- Cut sausage into ¾” cubes. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add sausage and onion; cook stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes or until sausage is lightly browned and onions are tender. Remove sausage and onion from pan; keep warm.
- Add olive oil and heat until hot; add potatoes and cook 20-25 minutes until golden brown and tender, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium. Add red pepper flakes and garlic; cook 1 minute stirring constantly.
- Add sausage mixture and spinach. Cook, stirring gently, just until spinach wilts and mixture is heated through, about 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off heat. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top and cover. Let stand 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
