Leek and Apple Hash

You can use either fresh or frozen for this, it's not too big a deal. And I intend to use more apples in my hash browns. It's like you mixed little caramelized something's in....

Leek and Apple Hash

1/2 an apple, diced finely
1 leek, rinsed and finely sliced
1 or 2 carrots finely diced
2 cups finely shredded potatoes
3 tbsp Bacon Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large saute pan to medium high heat. Add the leeks and the carrots and toss to cover in the oil. Saute for 2-4 minutes, the leek will become more translucent, like an onion and the carrots should start to soften up.

Add the apple and cook another 2 minutes, stirring often. Add in the other tablespoon of oil and sprinkle the potatoes over top and lightly mix everything together. Spread it all out in the pan in an even layer.

Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 3 minutes a side. The potatoes should be on the golden side of brown.

Sprinkle with salt and a little pepper and serve!

I know that not everyone is in to the Bacon Olive Oil. Don't worry. Just sub in your favorite flavor, Garlic would be nice, or Blood Orange. Go with the Persian Lime if you are feeling crazy!
