Recipe by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
"One of my favorite things to order when I go out to breakfast is hash - corned beef, roast beef or any other variation - which got me to thinking about trying to make it at home. After all, the ingredients are simple: As long as you've got some kind of protein, potatoes and onions, you're in business. And it makes a fast brunch or even light supper dish, with or without poached eggs."

vegetable or olive oil
onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 (16 ounce) can
crab (preferably claw), picked over
1 1/2 pounds
starchy potatoes (such as Idaho), cut into 1/2-inch dice
Old Bay ™ Seasoning
chopped fresh basil (or parsley)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
The potatoes get done faster if you cut them small and broil in the oven for 5-10 min rather than cook in pan on stove (they get crisper). then you can just add the crab mixture right into the pan you have roasted the potatoes in (we used glass baking pan).
Very tasty. I added a little more Old Bay than called for. This would be good with fried eggs for breakfast. The only reason that I'm not giving it 5 stars is that there seems to be something missing, which my husband and I couldn't identify. But we enjoyed it nonetheless.
Quick and easy, but crab makes for a more expensive shopping list, and the dish as a whole just isn't flavorful / colorful enough to warrant it.
Made a version of this with shredded potatoes that went pretty well. Also shredded the onions. Other then that I kept it mostly the same. Quite yummy!
