The great thing about potatoes is that they're extremely versatile. You can cook them endless ways and you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  For this week's Kentucky Cookin' segment here at WBKR, our friend Kelly Bland, from the UK Cooperative Extension Service in Daviess County, is serving up a recipe that can served for any meal really.  And, proving that potatoes are truly all-purpose, this recipe can be served as a side dish or the main course.

Here's how to make a quick, tasty and incredibly affordable potato hash.

POTATO HASH

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3 pounds petite red or gold potatoes, diced to 1/2-inch cubes

DIRECTIONS

Heat the olive oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
