With homemade sausage, fingerlings, and fresh herbs, this as one classy hash. But, truth be told, you can also make this dish to clean out the refrigerator: Just use whatever vegetables and herbs you have on hand. You can use a cast-iron skillet because the residual heat gently cooks the garlic and warms the fresh herbs.
