Kyle’s Hearty Venison Hash

Kyle's Hearty Venison Hash - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A filling and spice packed venison hash!Today, I was supposed to work.  BUT I DIDN’T HAVE TO.  And it was an awesome surprise. To celebrate, I woke up at 4 AM and then started meal planning with this awesome deer sausage my friend, Kyle, gave me last night.  Kyle and I work together, but he is an awesome friend and has the most adorable family. Plus he follows my blog and when people follow my blog, they get an extra gold star in my book. To make this hash, you just need to follow the following steps:
1. Find an awesome friend, preferably named Kyle because this recipe doesn’t sound as catchy when it’s called “Brad’s Hearty Venison Hash.”
2. Have said friend give you venison sausage.  Because venison is amazing, and you don’t hunt so you don’t really have a way to get it yourself (have you guys noticed that I LOVE fragments for the blog??)
3. Become an amazing cook, like me, and make the hash.
See?? Easy, right?
BUT FOR REAL.  I threw a ton of vegetables in with the sausage, but the spices and tomato paste are what take it to the next level.  Tomato paste is CRIMINALLY underrated – I am yet to make a recipe where it is an ingredient and not fall head over heels in love with it.  This bad boy is gluten free and cooks in one pot! Plus, it’s almost fall and fall is made for hash (hash is a fancy cooking word for hodge podge of food) and also for football.  Make it ASAP, watch football, drink a Karbach, and be thankful that you have a friend who is MAYBE as awesome as my pal Kyle (but I doubt they are as awesome, no offense).***
OH ALSO, have big cookie recipes planned for the blog in the next 2 weeks so make sure you pay attention!!

    As a self-proclaimed professional food eater, I must say, BEKS has outdone herself on this one. It’s been a while since food has made me cry, but here we are…
