The great Dr. Seuss was born on this date in 1904. In my favorite Dr. Seuss story, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” he wrote, “You’re a monster, Mr. Grinch, Your heart’s an empty hole, Your brain is full of spiders, You’ve got garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch.” Celebrate with this garlicky rendition of “Who Hash” aka Garlic Hashed Potatoes. It’s great as an accompaniment to eggs or as a savory side dish.
Garlic “Who Hash”
2 Yukon Gold potatoes, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 cloves garlic, minced
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Rinse the shredded potatoes and pat them dry.
Spread the shredded potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss the potatoes with the minced garlic, then spread them back on the mat. Return them to the oven and bake 5 more minutes.
