When it comes to eating breakfast for dinner, Red Flannel Hash created by food author, Linda Gassenheimer is everything you would want. She shared with us this recipe that’s a tasty mixture of beef, potatoes, and beets. It’s a New England specialty and turns a beautiful red color (hence the name). Get the full recipe below.

Serves 2 

1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 pound red bliss potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
1 cup sliced red onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups canned no-salt-added beets, drained and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (not pickled)
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 pound cooked, low-fat deli roast beef, cut into short 1-inch-wide strips
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Helpful Hints:
Yellow potato or canned potatoes can be substituted for red potatoes.
Look for canned beets that are not pickled.
Minced garlic can be found in the produce section of the market.
A quick way to chop parsley is to snip the leaves from the stalks with a scissors.

Countdown: Prepare ingredients. Make hash.

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potato and onion and sauté 5 minutes. Add the garlic and beets and stir to combine. Stir the flour into the vegetables.

2. Mix the broth and mustard together and add to the skillet. Lower heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add the roast beef to warm for 30 seconds in the skillet. Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve on 2 dinner plates.
