A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer… one very funny Christmas parody song calls these the “stale TV specials.” What a Grinchy thing to say! Go ahead and roll your eyes, but we all have our favorite holiday specials and favorite lines, too! (“Nobody likes a Charlie-in-the-box!”)
My friend and I decided to recreate some dishes featured in our favorite holiday shows or in honor of them. He created a homemade cheese pizza just like Kevin’s in Home Alone. And I made this Who Hash, the last can of which the Grinch stole from the Whos.
Unlike the Grinch, I prefer a Who Hash that’s a cut-above the canned variety. This recipe for Who Hash has diced, fresh potatoes, onions and some roast Beast. I mean, beef!
How to make Who Hash
Step 1: Combine the meat, potatoes and seasonings
In a large bowl mix together diced roast beef, diced cooked potato and diced onion. Mix these together with milk and seasonings.
Step 2: Fry it up in a pan
Heat the oil in a large skillet, and when it’s hot add the beef and potato mixture. Spread it into a even layer and let it cook for 10 minutes. Once a crust has formed on the bottom, stir the hash around and cook it for another 10-15 minutes until it’s hot and browned throughout.
Step 3: Invite your Grinches to join you!
Serve the Who Hash while it’s hot, alongside buttered toast or hot biscuits.
- Use leftover roast beef from a dinner roast or purchase some from your deli.
What a tasty, savory dinner of Who Hash – and it makes a hearty breakfast, too. Fahoo Fores Dahoo Dores. The recipe is below, and here are a few more holiday treats for you!
Who Hash with Roast Beast (Beef)
- 3 cups diced potatoes
- ½ pound roast beef, diced
- 1 medium onion, diced
- ½ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon hot sauce
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Combine in a bowl the diced potatoes, diced roast beef, and diced onion.
- Add in the milk, salt, and hot sauce. Stir to combine.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat until it’s hot, so that a piece of onion dropped in will begin to sizzle. Spread the diced mixture over the bottom of the skillet in an even layer.
- Cook the layer for about 10 minutes, pressing down occasionally with a spatula, until a brown crust forms on the bottom. Then, stir the contents and continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the hash is cooked and browned throughout.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
- Makes 4 servings or fills 2 Who Hash cans.
- Use roast beef leftover from a dinner roast, or purchase some from your deli.
