This hash begins with bacon, cooked until crispy in a heavy skillet, then removed to drain.  Sautéed diced onion, mushrooms, fresh corn off the cob and cubed sweet potato (seasoned with fresh herbs) are cooked until tender.  The beautiful thing about hash is you can incorporate a variety of veggies and aromatics, the key is to pan fry them, pressing them into the pan as they cook.  It’s the nice crispy edges that makes hash so delicious.
