Originally, our cousins Drew and Anna were going to spend this long weekend with us, but were forced to cancel. Dad and I had already planned out a meal for them however, so we decided to go ahead with it. It, is a sausage hash recipe from Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock's "Gift off Southern Cooking" Cookbook, a family favorite.
The hash consists of onions, celery, and sausage in addition to the potatoes. Now, in the latter stages of cooking, everything simply rests in a pan, bathing in the cream and chicken stock.
The hash was excellent - simple ingredients prepared well. Warm, rich and wintry, the ketchup on top made it feel like it belongs in the winter of an era before we could get fruits and veggies from the southern hemisphere in winter. If you have a potato and a few vegetables, hash is definitely the meal to make.
