In my line of work, you end up with lots of leftovers, and lots of leftovers means that I make a lot of hash. I mean, a lot of it. What better way is there to recycle that little hunk of bacon, that half onion, and that just-about-to-get-wrinkled pepper than to chop them up, fry them in a skillet with cubes of potatoes, and serve them with runny eggs on a lazy sunday morning? (Hint: there is no better way.)

As anyone who's ever grown zucchini, eggplants, or squash can tell you, they're the type of plants that experience late-life growth spurts. They're garden procrastinators. They'll give you a reasonable number of fruits and blossoms to work with throughout the bulk of the summer, then one morning you'll look out the window over your plant beds and see enormous zucchini hanging out on the plant all casual-like, as if they're saying, "Who, us? We've always been here, mate." Finding useful ways to use them up is a challenge. Here's one way to do it.
It was the morning after the first leg of my recent cross-country road trip and I woke up to aroma of cinnamon and butter wafting through the air. When a gentlelady offers you her buns, no matter how sticky, it's only polite to offer her something in return, so I turned to my in-a-strange-kitchen-with-no-knowledge-of-what-they've-got staple breakfast: vegetable hash.

Unlike some dishes that lend themselves easily to highfalutin interpretations (lobster Benedict, fried chicken pancakes, etc.), hash is sublime in its simplicity. That's not to suggest that humble hash can't be elevated and celebrated, as proven by aptly named newcomer Hash.
