Pittsburgh Hash!

Breakfast at Pamela's on July 22.

My favorite breakfast, Pittsburgh Hash! I have been a huge fan of this meal since I had the first bite at the last visit. It's not on a menu. I found it on the new(?) menu ads on the window. The hash has potatoes (of course), Kilbasa and Sauerkraut, served with eggs and bread.
