Hash is traditionally a dish made of leftovers in which the vegetables are fried and served hot. Bubble and squeak, made from leftover potatoes re-fried with cooked cabbage, is a typical hash. Usually the mixture is stirred and turned in the frying pan to incorporate the crunchy browned bits but vegetables can also be formed into cakes and fried until the outside is crisp and brown.
Potatoes are good used in hashes as they help to bind the vegetables together, however, other carbohydrate foods such as rice or fresh breadcrumbs, perhaps with an egg too, can be used instead.
