New England Beet Hash


AKA Red Flannel Hash

1/2 package sliced bacon
2 or 3 medium/large potatoes cubed small
2 cans beets, drained and chopped fine
1 small onion chopped fine
salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes till just before done. Drain and then set aside. Fry bacon till done. Set off onto paper to drain. If there is excess grease pour off grease into a cup. Saute onion. Now add potatoes and fry a little, add more bacon grease or butter if needed. I take the can from the beets and use it to chop the beets very fine. Now add beets to potatoes and onions. Next add bacon, crumbled, and fry a little until all is mixed in well together.You may need to add more grease, thus use it from what you drained off into the cup or butter. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Note: This recipe was given to me by my grandmother, though she used hamburger. I recall my mom making it with bacon, but you can use corned beef or hamburger {though I don't think hamburger is very tasty} for this recipe.
