If you’ve never had breakfast hash before, it’s a great way to enjoy leftover corned beef & potatoes!
Corned beef hash is a full meal in one skillet. Fried diced potatoes, peppers, and leftover corned beef are topped with eggs cooked to perfection, just a little bit runny.
This meal is hearty enough to enjoy for breakfast lunch or dinner!
What Is Corned Beef Hash?
Add in some leftover corned beef and you’ve got yourself Corned beef hash!
Corned beef itself is a beef brisket that has been brined. I typically cook corned beef in the slow cooker with cabbage but always buy a large enough corned beef so I have leftovers! If you don’t happen to have leftovers, you can use ham or ask them to cut your corned beef a little bit thicker at the deli.
You can top this with a poached egg or add them directly to the pan and bake in the oven few minutes. (I usually do them in the oven per the recipe below, it’s easier)!
POTATOES & ONIONS
If you have leftover roasted potatoes, boiled or even baked potatoes, by all means, use those. In a pinch, you can also use store-bought hash brown potatoes.
Anything you pair with a corned beef dinner is great in corned beef hash!
- Minced garlic cloves, fresh herbs, chives.
- Leftover potatoes (even mashed potatoes), hashbrowns, or sweet potatoes.
- Leftover cabbage, mushrooms, or other vegetables.
How To Make Corned Beef Hash
- Sautee corned beef, onions, peppers & potatoes until nice and crispy.
- Create 4 holes or ‘wells’ in your hash and crack an egg into each.
- Then, bake the whole thing until the eggs are cooked how you like them (about 12 minutes)!
I like my yolks to be soft and slightly runny as they definitely add a creaminess to the dish, but of course, cook them to your liking!
Leftovers? No problem! Corned beef hash reheats in the microwave easily, but remove the eggs first so they don’t become rubbery.
Make sure you use an oven-safe frying pan! If you’re unsure whether your pan is oven safe or not, a general rule is to ensure your pan doesn’t have a heat guard on its handle (and the handle is not wood). Cast iron pans are almost always oven-safe and work great for this homemade corned beef hash and eggs.
