Red Flannel Hash

It's been a while since I shared a recipe so I'll give you the one pictured in 105. It is pretty much an open ended recipe, you and increase or decrease the ingredients as necessary.

It is named for a mining camp legend. A woman keeping a boarding house near a mining camp was running short on ingredients one day, so she ground up and tossed her husband's red flannel union suit into her potato hash to extend it a bit. The bright red hash proved so popular with the miners that she had to find a way to make it every day, and beets proved cheaper that red flannel union suits, so she substituted those, and a recipe was born!

Red Flannel Hash
1 cup beets, in small cubes
1 cup sweet potato or yams, in small cubes
1 cup white or red potato, in small cubes
1/2 cup yellow onion, in small cubes
1/2 cup corned beef, in small cubes (optional)
4 Eggs
Fresh rosemary
Olive Oil

Combine all ingredients except eggs in a large skillet and saute until the vegetables have cooked through and are tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Fry or poach eggs and serve atop the vegetable mixture.
