Hash: a dish of diced or chopped meat and
often vegetables, as of leftover corned beef
and potatoes, sautéd in a frying pan.
I am not sure you can define hash, but the above statements attempts to. Growing up, it meant some awful, smelly stuff that came out of a can that for whatever reason my Dad enjoyed, mostly at breakfast.
Butternut Squash Hash
2 cup small diced butternut squash
1 lb bulk mild breakfast sausage
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp butter
salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp rubbed sage
4 large eggs
Crumble and cook sausage until done. Remove from skillet. Set aside and cover to keep warm. Add onion and squash to skillet with water and cover. Cook over medium heat until tender-crisp. Uncover and continue cooking until all the water evaporates. Add butter and saute until the squash starts to brown. Add sausage back to the skillet. Season with sage and salt and pepper. Divide between 4 serving bowls. Top each serving with a fried egg to order.

This was a very hearty breakfast and kept me going most of the day. It will also make a wonderful comfort-food supper.
