Roast Beef Hash

Colleen Sowa


Old family recipe of my great grandmother Ellen Kay Sullivan, who gave it to daughter-in-law Mabel Kennedy Sullivan & told her, "This is Frank's favorite breakfast! He says it sticks to his ribs!"

When my parents married, grandma Mabel repeated this to my mother & my mother told me every time she made it!

Dad said he was a "Meat and Potatoes kind of guy." Must run in the family, because I am a Meat and Potatoes kind of girl.

I love telling my daughter & grandchildren all of the stories along with the recipes, so a little bit of each of them lives on...
