One item missing from the picture above is corned beef hash. I love corned beef hash and have been on the search for the best hash in Lansing. Corned beef hash is a nice compliment to any breakfast.

Corned beef hash is a simple dish. Wikipedia describes hash as:

Hash is a culinary dish consisting of chopped meat, potatoes, and fried onions. The name is derived from French: hacher, meaning "to chop". It originated as a way to use up leftovers. In the U.S. by the 1860s, a cheap restaurant was called a "hash house" or "hashery." Canned corned beef hash became especially popular in countries such as Britain, France, and the United States, during and after the Second World War as rationing limited the availability of fresh meat. Hash may be served for breakfast, lunch, or supper. When served for breakfast in the United States hash may come with eggs, toast, hollandaise sauce, or baked beans. High-end restaurants offer sophisticated hash dishes on their menus. Modern preparations can be made with unconventional ingredients such as lamb, fish, venison, turkey, chicken, shrimp, or steak.

I am a big fan of my corned beef hash well done, crispy. My favorite breakfast would be a plate of crispy, corned beef hash topped with two poached eggs. Plain and simple, the egg yolk adds richness to the hash.

Some of the best hash I ever consumed was at Beggar's Banquet in East Lansing. It's been about twenty years since I had brunch at Beggar's but their roast beef hash is some of the best hash that has ever hit my tastebuds.

If you like hash (corned beef or whatever), there are some tasty places to get your hash fix.
