Hippie Hash

This mish mash of a recipe will add some zing to a weekend breakfast any time of the year.  Hippie Hash is actually just a funny name for veggie packed hash browns. 

This recipe technique comes from a small diner in High Springs, Florida called Springs Diner.  We went camping there last year and on our way home we stopped for breakfast.  We were a bit "under the weather" from the night before...if you know what I a greasy spoon diner sounded absolutely perfect to aid in our recovery efforts. 

As I perused the menu I noticed this:

and thought I would give it a try.  Score.  It was amazing.  Mine was served with an omelet and the hash was full of veggies and topped with feta cheese.  Instantly I knew I had to make it at home.


As for the original, I can't remember everything that was in it, but when I tasted my at home version it seemed just as good.  Here's how:

Hippie Hash
Print this recipe!

3 C of frozen hash browns
2 C of any (chopped) veggies you would like - I used diced tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and broccoli
2 T pesto
1/2 feta cheese

-Saute veggies in a little olive oil over medium heat.  Once softened, add hash browns and cook until desired doneness/crispiness.  About 10-15 minutes more.  Mix in pesto and top with feta just before serving.

Other great veggie add-in ideas:
  • zucchini
  • garlic
  • bell peppers
  • corn

This recipe is great to accompany eggs (I served mine with quiche last night) or add a bit of meat and make it a one pot meal.  You'll have your friends and family coming back for more, I promise!
