That's right! Red Flannel Hash

  • 2 1/2 cups potatoes (cooked)   
  • 3/4 cup turnip (cooked)
  • 3/4 cup cooked carrots

  2. pour over all the 1/4 cup of water.
  3. Cover and let cook slowly
  4. Stir occasionally until thoroughly heated and flavors are blended.
  5. Serve hot

Where does it grow?......... 
Does not grow... but is usually made from left-overs, yes I posted that correctly, from leftovers of Irish potatoes, cooked meats, mixed vegetables and a little salt and pepper.

How do you prepare it?....  
It is usually served with poached eggs and rye toast...

What does it taste like?.....  
Very Tasty.... if you like that sort of stuff.  Me, I have never quite acquired a liking for it. Maybe I am just not Irish enough... :)

Have you ever tried it?......
Yes... Many times two or three days after a great St. Patty's day party

What recipe would you suggest using this mystery Ingredient?.....
Because we like to use Corned Beef in ours, here is another really good recipe you can try.
1/2 lb. cooked corned beef, finely chopped
1 lb. cold boiled potatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup cooked carrots chopped
1/4 cup green bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup sweet onion chopped
2 cloves garlic diced
3 drops Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp. butter
sea salt, to taste
cracked black pepper, to taste
Melt the butter in the water, add the other ingredients, and cook until thoroughly heated through, then put into a baking pan and place in the oven until brown on top.Serve with a white sauce or two poached eggs, if preferred.
