My job is having a holiday brunch potluck this Wed. and I volunteered to bring potato hash. It was on the suggested list, and I knew I remembered seeing a recipe in veganomicon or one of isa's books. I'm a huge fan of breakfast potatoes and hashbrowns, so I thought, no problem!

Well, now that I've looked into it I realized that hash seems to be a special variety of breakfast potatoes that contain meat/protein (and are usually topped with eggs). I did not know this!! I guess I never ate it before.

I'm hesitant to bring something to an omni potluck with soy crumbles or tempeh, etc. Some of the folks are somewhat vegan friendly, but I think a lot of them might think it is weird. We're talking like 25 people at least.

On the other hand, apparently no one has signed up to bring any meats - an email just went out saying it was still missing yesterday. So maybe it might go over surprisingly well if I made something with the mini field roast maple sausages, or even the apple sage ones, or maybe beyond meat crumbles. (nothing soy)

The problem is I can't find the perfect recipe online. I saw a few that suggested kale, white beans, butternut squash and apple sage sausages might be great. But I don't want to do something untested for a potluck!!

I also thought maybe something southwestern, with peppers, black and or black eyed peas. Most of those recipes call for avocado on top, which won't due for a potluck because it will get brown.

I also considered waffle-maker hashbrowns...but then, those might not be crispy reheated in the microwave. Whatever it is I have to be able to make it the night before and reheat it. At this point I would do anything breakfast potato related.

So does anyone out there have a great has recipe that might work?

Well, if it makes you feel better I think of "hash" as just being small diced potatoes, that CAN have stuff in it but doesn't need to. I feel like plenty of dinery places do sides of potato hash that are just potato, small diced onion, maybe green pepper, and like...salted. Maybe paprika. I would go with something like that if you really think people will be put off by something fake meaty, but I also think those field roast breakfast sausages are delicious, and I think if people didn't Know they were eating some weird vegan thing, they wouldn't think twice about it.

I think those field roast breakfast sausages will go over really well with omnis, esp if you don't mention it. Cut up small in hash they won't even know.

Vegan brunch has a really delicious Brussels sprout hash.

Roasting a big pile of cubed potatoes is the way to go for sure. I doubt whoever made that list was thinking that an appropriate dish to make the night before, bring to work and microwave is a potato, meat combo with an egg on top. That sounds revolting and a recipe for food poisoning. And I liked eggs pregan. Everyone will be thrilled with a bunch of roasted potatoes.

Yeah! This one knocked my socks off! It's incredible.

I also like the red flannel hash in vegan brunch if your super wary of vegan meat and it's really easy.

well, to follow up everyone liked the potatoes. they just weren't quite up to my standards.

i think the problem for me with potlucks is scaling up. All of my pots and pans are only sized for 4, so when I make a huge recipe for more people things don't cook the same. i'm definitely keeping this in mind as a lesson learned for future potlucks!
