What is corned venison hash?
Corned venison hash is a wild game spin on the classic corned beef hash. Corned beef hash is typically a leftover dish of corned beef, potatoes, and onions and is often served with fried eggs. The origin of corned beef hash is a little muddled but Americans have been eating it for many years. The word "hash" comes from the French word "hacher" which means "to chop." The canned version became popular after WWII when fresh meat has limited availability. While the canned version still has its place, the homemade version is on a whole other level.

Putting it all together:
Once your hash is crisped to perfection, you could stop there and dig in. But, I like to dress it up a bit. A drizzle of homemade horseradish cream sauce adds a little zing to balance out the richness. Fry up an egg (or two) sunny side up or over easy and slide it on top of the hash. Break open the yolk and let it coat the hash with that creamy goodness. Serve with toasted sourdough bread. Enjoy!
