Camp Hash

"Here's a simple meal that's easy to fix and you don't have to have a ton of ingredients to mess with. Seasoning can be fun here too depending on the meat you use. I've even used venison burger with this and it's great. Prep time is approx. as I never time anything when camping."

  1. LOL, I was given a large pkg. of the Golden Grill dried shredded hash brwon potatoes and wondered...What on earth do I do with these? Well, I also have vension sausage in the freezer, onions, fresh bell peppers from the garden and Lipton Onion Soup Mix in the pantry. I browned the vension sausage in the bottom of the pot, adding in some chopped bell pepper and onion, cooking until they were crisp tender, draining some of the fat from the sausage as indicated, added the water and the potatoes, letting them refresh as it states on the pkg, and added a little salt and pepper and served the hash with eggs and buttered toast. It was sooo good and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing!


I’m over the hill and heading down the back side at a rapid rate it seems, single, and retired now. My loves? Good friends, most of all. After that I guess it would be wildlife and photographing it. In fact, I love anything that deals with wild animals and the outdoors. Then comes playing with my dog and making a mess trying to cook in the kitchen or around the fire pit, grill or smoker while enjoying a good tumbler of whiskey (whisky).
