This Hamburger Hash recipe is perfect for using up leftover potatoes—just cook up some meat and toss in onions, diced cooked potatoes, and season it well. Easy!
The most important part of making any kind of hash is making sure you season it well. You will need more salt and pepper than you think you’ll need. I start off with about a teaspoon of salt and pepper and then go from there. It’s really a matter of seasoning and tasting.
- Large skillet
- Slotted spatula
- 1 lb A Little Onion & Chive™ Roast or Grill Ready Little Potatoes
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 shallot, diced
- 2 Tbsp salted butter
- (To taste) salt and pepper
If you aren’t using leftover roasted or cooked potatoes, you’ll need to prepare some. These Roast or Grill Ready Little Potatoes couldn’t be easier. They come in an aluminum baking tray and the seasonings are already provided.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown and crumble the ground beef along with the diced shallot. Season well with salt and pepper.
Drain any excess grease, place two tablespoons of butter into the pan to melt.
Put cooked beef back into the pan, then add in the diced Little Potatoes. Turn the heat up and season the mixture with salt and pepper and stir.
Using the back of a spatula, press down on the hash mixture. This will help the the beef and potatoes to get a little crisp. Let it cook for a couple of minutes. Then flip it all over and do the same process again.
At this point, you can turn down the heat and crack a couple of eggs over top, place the lid on and allow them to cook for a couple of minutes. Or you can serve it, as is, on the side.
