While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
This treat is fit for the pearly gates - February 2 is National Heavenly Hash Day!
Whatever mental image the name of this mystery dish conjures up in your mind, you're probably right! That's because the name "heavenly hash" has been given to several things, and indeed, they all sound divinely inspired.
If heavenly hash is mentioned around the holidays, it's most likely that fluffy white fruit salad that can contain any number of yummy ingredients all swirled together. Typically, sour cream, mini marshmallows, mandarin oranges, coconut and pineapple chunks are mixed and left to sit in the fridge overnight.
Heavenly hash is also the name of a candy, which you can make with chocolate, walnuts and mini marshmallows. Heavenly hash cakes and brownies are also popular. And just think, no matter what you go with, you're sure to get your daily serving of marshmallows in!
