What to serve with it?

Hot dog hash is a complete meal on its own but what hash would be complete without an egg? You can poach the egg or fry it.

Serve with ketchup on the side.

  1. Do you know, I have never even realised that hash comes from the French hacher – it makes perfect sense though ! Love the sound of this dish. I have a big pack of sausages to use up so this will be a great idea. Sounds delicious too 🙂
