The title word is used a lot in our language: hashtag; make a real hash out of that; corned-beef hash. The word itself is from the French verb << hâcher >> meaning to chop. When we ‘hash it over,’ we cut it into small parts to analyze. I bring this up because the breakfast proposed here is a sort of hash, made of ham. Looks like corned-beef in the photo, but it is ham. On a similar note, another French word is used in the kitchen: “mince.” We use the word mostly to mean that something is cut finely, or to mince words. But the adjective << mince >> in French also means “thin,” something to which many aspire. You can use both those words as you prepare dinner. Bon appetit!
