Texas Hash ~ an Ebner-Piland Tradition

This is a good ‘ ol recipe for a hearty, quick & easy comfort meal that reminds us of some real Southern Cookin’! This is my take on the recipe I got from my mom in law who lives in Kilgore Texas, Janis Piland. Play around w/it a little til you find how your family likes it best & make it a tradition in your home too!
