breakfast brunch essentials: easy brisket hash

a recipe by

Got some leftover brisket… Well, here you go. What I love about this hash recipe is that it can be made with whatever you have on hand. I happened to have some leftover brisket, but it will work with ham, chicken, or use more veggies and make it vegetarian. In addition, I wanted something that was easy to put together, and didn’t require a lot of time tossing and sautéing. I’m making this in a small cast-iron skillet and it will feed two “normal” people, or one hungry person. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Chef's Note: The hardest part of this recipe is flipping the hash over... it takes a bit of practice. If it breaks up during the flipping, no worries, just serve it up as a "rustic" dish.

    Chef’s Note: By the end of the cooking time, the potatoes should be nice and tender.
