Tuck Bassett’s Christmas Brisket Hash Recipe

Casey Bassett jokingly said he was hesitant to share his dad's secret brisket hash family recipe. (Thankfully, they agreed to share it with Buzz readers.) Read the story on Christmas breakfast traditions here


1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cloves minced garlic
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 (32-ounce) bag of frozen tater tots, thawed and broken up
1/2 to 3/4 pound of smoked brisket, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter
Eggs (to serve)
1 bunch of green onions, diced (to serve)

Recipe directions: 

In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and diced sweet onion to the skillet to sauté. Stir in the tater tots. Cook until they start to crisp up. Add the cubes of smoked brisket to the skillet. Continue to cook and stir until the brisket is heated through and slightly crispy at the edges. If desired, sprinkle red pepper flakes over the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a separate skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and fry the eggs to your desired doneness. Serve a portion of hash with an egg or green onion, if desired.
