Mom’s Kitchen: Roast Beef Hash

Scan.BMPOne of the wonderful memories I have of Mom’s Kitchen, is the two of us sharing recipes and stories of the history of each recipe.  We would sit and go through her old cookbooks to find secrets.  Some recipes she would type out on cards, some she would just write out in pencil.  This one goes back to my grandmother and the depression when meat and butter was in short supply.
