Hash is a dish consisting of diced meat, potatoes, and spices that are mixed together and then cooked either alone or with other ingredients such as onions. The name is derived from the French verb hacher. In many locations, hash is served primarily as a breakfast food on restaurant menus and as home cuisine, often served with eggs and toast, and occasionally fried potatoes. The dish may also use corned beef or roast beef. Corned beef hash became especially popular in some countries during and after World War II as rationing limited the availability of fresh meat. Hash has recently made a comeback as more than just a dish for leftovers or breakfasts of last resort. High-end restaurants now offer sophisticated hashes and the first cookbook dedicated exclusively to a wide variety of hashes was self-published in 2012.
