Red Flannel Hash

This hash is a Yankee tradition, so called, some say, for its colors, which resemble a red flannel shirt. It’s customarily served the morning after a New England boiled dinner, when there's plenty of leftover corned beef and potatoes. Our version combines roasted beets and potatoes with a small portion of corned beef for a lighter take on the original.
