This hash is an easy skillet dish made with leftover pork loin and diced cooked potatoes. This is a tasty way to use leftovers, and it's an excellent way to extend meals and make them budget-friendly.
Condensed cream of mushroom soup is used in this recipe, but cream of celery would make a good substitute. Or you may want to avoid processed foods and use a seasoned medium white sauce in place of the soup and milk. See below for a quick how-to.
Peas and carrots in the hash make it a well-balanced meal, and they add some color. Gussy up the finished hash with some extra paprika and fresh chopped parsley. A tossed salad or simple dressed greens would make a nice addition to the meal, or serve the hash with biscuits or cornbread.
There are plenty of substitutions and variations for this versatile hash recipe, and I've included some of them at the end of the recipe.
