Scandinavian Hash (Biksemad)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is a very traditional Danish dish and one that merchant sailors love to make when they come off night watch and want a quick easy hot meal. It is so simple and very good. Great recipe for re-cycling left over roasts etc. Add some peas or some mushrooms, Any left over veggies. The egg is optional but don't miss out on it

Absolutely would make again and if you asked me what time is dinner? It's when I see you come through the door.
