If you love to s t r e t c h your food dollar, it’s hard to knock any recipe that’s been featured in The Unemployment Cookbook.
While my Mom’s recipe is a slightly different version, most hash recipes are a simple combination of beef, onions, tomatoes, rice and seasonings.
Perfect for a hearty, quick dish that’s budget friendly.
foodie tips ~
♥ For oil we used olive oil. But I bet Mom would have used Crisco Vegetable Oil.
♥ For the big can of tomatoes we used 28 ounces of San Marzano tomatoes . . . my favorite.
♥ If you like to kick up the heat a bit add some chopped jalapeño while sautéing or a few cracks of fresh black pepper just before stirring and baking. Sets my heart on fire!
♥ Before baking you don’t have to stir the ingredients but we preferred stirred to layered for the finished dish.
