Brussel Hash


As you can guess I have been spending a lot of time in Nashville lately which means I get to try new restaurants and find inspiration! Nashville is quickly becoming a hub of food culture. With all the different districts(The Gulch, East Nashville, Germantown, etc.) and the identities within each district some really talented chefs have made their way into their niche market and are making their mark. One restaurant in particular I tried recently was the Eastland Cafe. Everything I had there was delicious but one bit of inspiration I walked away with? The idea of brussel hash.  I was introduced to this incredible Charred Brussel Hash which featured brussel sprouts, asparagus and potato. What I loved about it is that potatoes were the featured ingredient in the side dish, the veggies were, which still allowed me to feel good about eating them all, which ofcourse I did. I tried my hardest to tell everyone at the table how awful they were so I didn't have to share. "Trust me...You don't want to try them, their just terrible...I hate to waste them so I'll just MAKE myself"  Just kidding, I'm a good food-sharer and if you don't think you'll like something I want to share...I'm a great force-feeder! I come by it honestly. 

1 lb brussel sprouts chopped
1/2lb asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2lb potatoes (baby or fingerling)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped bacon
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper

Saute onion, garlic and potatoes over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes. Add in brussel sprouts and asparagus, salt and pepper and toss. Let cook, stirring occassionally, for 7-8 minutes. Allow sprouts to char a bit before stirring and allowing to char again. Add water and let steam for 5 more minutes or until potatoes and brussel sprouts are cooked through. The brussel sprouts should be tender but should remain bright green - aside from the charred bits ofcourse!

Side Note:
I made these as a side dish for Beef Wellington when I made dinner for my friend Sloane from Sweat and Sequins and her husband Invisible Dave - You might remember his name from my Simple Cinnamon Roll post. They loved them as much as I knew they would!

Pair your Brussel Hash with any of the following for a perfect meal:

Patsy's Halibut

Seared Ahi Tuna

Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

  4. THE DENOMINATIONAL STANDARD VERSION
    The following are excerpts from the yet to be published new Bible translation: The Denominational Standard Version.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent for the forgiveness of your sins, however, you do not have to be baptized in water for forgiveness of sins because the thief on the cross was saved without being baptized."(DSV)

    John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that the few who were predetermined for salvation will be saved and all others will burn in hell. (DSV)

    1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and many Mediators between God and man, that man Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and other dead saints.(DSV)

    1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that unrighteous Christians will enter the kingdom of God, because of once saved always saved. Unrepentant Christians who are fornicators, idolaters, homosexuals, and drunkards will inherit the kingdom of God because of eternal security.(DSV)

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes will be saved. He who is not baptized cannot join a denominational church, but may enter heaven.(DSV)


    2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture, all church catechisms, all creed books, all post Biblical books of new revelation, all extra-Biblical writings are given by inspiration of God, so that the man of God may be complete.(DSV)

    The Denominational Standard Version has not been written as of now, however, it would have to be written in order to support denominational doctrine.
