A Tasty Breakfast Twist

You are probably familiar with corned beef hash, which is a baked or fried mixture of corned beef, potatoes, and vegetables that have all been cut into small pieces. Hot dog hash is my take on this traditional breakfast dish. Hot dogs are my all-time favorite breakfast meat, and I think this hash tastes great!

Tips and Techniques

  • Make the hash more flavorful by adding butter.
  • Add oil to butter to avoid the latter from burning.
  • Serve with toasted bread or fried rice.
  • Mix all the ingredients continuously to prevent everything from sticking to the bottom of the pan, which might cause burning.
