Hamburger Hash

This morning I was talking to my Daddy on the phone and we were talking about “days gone by”. How things were much simpler back before computers, cell phones, video games, etc. We all sat down to supper together as a family and had real conversations about our day. Daddy would even take the phone off the hook during supper so there were no interruptions. Anyway, he ask what I was cooking today, I told him I had thawed ground beef but hadn’t decided what to do with it yet. He suggested hamburger hash, which he used to make all the time. I had everything I needed so that is exactly what I made. I used zesty tomatoes, but you can use regular in this recipe. We sat down to eat and after the first bite I was in “childhood memories” heaven.
