South Western Hash/Stir fry

Betty Perrie


I had this 1st time when I was only 13. It has stuck in my head ever since & I love making this dish for my family. My daughter grew up eating this & now my grand children. They never leave food on their plate when this tasty dish is made. You can use ANY meat for this recipe. I love making it with either Chicken breast, Turkey chunks or with Pork. To make it more a Breakfast or Brunch style dish. Use smoked sausage or Kielbasa in place of chicken, Turkey or pork. You can also add scrambled eggs for extra protein & filling. Any way you make it.. it's going to be delicious.
