  • Hash is a dish consisting of diced meat, potatoes, and spices that are mixed together and then cooked either alone or with other ingredients such as onions. The name is derived from the French verb hacher. The dish has been described as originally dating to the middle ages, and possibly to Ancient Rome. Corned beef hash became especially popular in some countries including in Britain and France during and after World War II as rationing limited the availability of fresh meat. In many locations, hash is served primarily as a breakfast food on restaurant menus and as home cuisine, often served with eggs and toast, and occasionally fried potatoes. The dish may also use corned beef or roast beef. Hash has recently made a comeback as more than just a dish for leftovers or breakfasts of last resort. High-end restaurants now offer sophisticated hashes and the first cookbook dedicated exclusively to a wide variety of hashes was self-published in 2012.
