Who Hash (aka Roast Beast Hash), inspired by How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I love Dr. Seuss. We have pretty much every book ever written by him hanging out around the house somewhere. Even some old VHS tapes like The Lorax and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The originals, or cartoon versions. The newer remakes are cute, too - but I love the classics.
Somewhere along the line, I bought the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas on DVD, as well. I had to; our VCR prefers eating tapes to playing them. Show of hands for anybody old enough to remember taking a VCR apart to rescue one of your favorite movies.
But also in celebration of the Grinch's heart growing not two, but THREE sizes when he discovered that Christmas came with presents or packages or bows...
This Who Hash can be made using some of that leftover roast beast, Mr. Grinch. It's the perfect breakfast or brunch for the day after the big feast.
