Yankee Red Flannel Hash (Corned Beef Skillet Dish)

Recipe by KeriLou

This was one of my favorites made by Mother, growing up in Nashville, TN. She got it from her Better Homes & Garden Cookbook (much older version than the one I got when I married). I recently tried this out on a dear upstate New Yorker friend who claimed "wasn't too crazy about beets" but loved this.
