No, not the condensed marijuana, but pretty addictive anyway. My Beloved loves hash under his eggs, so I set out to surprise him with a new version last week.

I cut some yellow fingerling potatoes into small dice, chopped an onion, slivered a big clove of garlic and cut the kernels off an ear of corn. I had some prosciutto in the fridge, so I cut those slices into small pieces and sautéed them until nearing crisp in some olive oil, added all the rest of the ingredients except the corn and cooked them long and slow to bring out the sweetness of the alliums and to put a nice brown crust on the potatoes. A little fresh parsley would have been terrific if I had had it. In the last few minutes, I stirred in the corn niblets and cooked it all together for few more minutes before plating it with an egg on top, easy over as he prefers.

Not really classical hash, but it was homey and fresh at the same time. Definitely habit-forming.

Prosciutto hash works for me. The heck with toast for breakfast.

Too late for "brunch," but I'm finally making the meatloaf hash today, thanks to your experience with some in Marin. What a good idea.

Even better idea -- what you made with prosciutto. A delicious sow's ear out of a silk purse.

Greg, it was deep-down good!

Cookiecrumb, yes, it's really only ham, after all. :-)
