Made for the Cooking Tag Mania Special because Icelanders view potatoes w/every meal as a near religious imperative. This was easy-to-fix & flavorful. I added diced red onion & let it caramelize while the potatoes browned. A sprinkle of shredded cheese is also often used & then a mound of the hash is topped w/fried eggs. My DH & BIL were well-fed & happy campers. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
