Add a savory touch to any spring brunch with this hearty Spring Vegetable Hash!

Hash dishes were originally created as a way to use up leftovers and traditionally consist of chopped meat, potatoes and onions, but you can commonly find them on restaurant menus featuring a slew of delicious ingredients, including vibrant vegetables and protein-rich eggs.

In the spirit of spring, this hash is loaded with savory diced ham and seasonal produce like carrots, asparagus and red bell peppers. Finished with fresh herbs, this dish would make a remarkable main dish at an Easter brunch or a tasty post-Easter breakfast!
