Dilled Salmon Hash with Poached Eggs Recipe

Dilled Salmon Hash with Poached Eggs Recipe
Hash was originally made, usually on Mondays, with leftovers from Sunday dinner, i.e., chunks of leftover roast beef, chunks of cooked potatoes, and some gravy to moisten. However, over the years, hash has evolved into a popular brunch and supper dish, and dozens of varieties are even found on fancy and trendy restaurant menus. Corned Beef Hash is most commonly known, but good hash can be made with almost any meat, poultry, or fish. The following Dilled Salmon Hash with Poached Eggs and Hollandaise is perfect for an Easter or spring brunch. It can be made in less than 30 minutes, as long as you have leftover salmon and cooked potatoes. Hollandaise is a no brainer when made in the blender, so don’t let the thought of it intimidate you.
Steamed asparagus is a great accompaniment to this yummy hash, and if you’re making it for Easter brunch, Hot Cross Buns (with the dough made in the automatic bread machine to save time) are a must. Even if you hate to cook, or are short on time, you can serve this hash for Easter brunch, and it will draw raves.
