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?

A breakfast hash is a type of breakfast skillet and is usually made by frying potatoes, meat and veggies into one big dish, kind of like home fries with more goodies. (Yum right?!)



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)!


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

This is the perfect meal to enjoy leftovers from corned beef and colcannon!

  1. Sautee corned beef, onions, peppers & potatoes until nice and crispy.
  2. Create 4 holes or ‘wells’ in your hash and crack an egg into each.
  3. 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.

Corned Beef Hash

Corned beef hash is the perfect way to use up any leftover corned beef! Potatoes, peppers, and leftover corned beef are sautéed until crispy, topped with a cracked egg, and baked to perfection.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 27 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter divided
  • ¾ cup onion or 1 small onion, diced
  • 8 ounces cooked corned beef diced (about 2 cups)
  • 3 cups cooked potato diced, see note
  • 1 green pepper finely diced
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley for garnish chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add onion and corned beef and cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining butter and stir in the potato and green pepper and continue to cook 5-7 minutes longer or until the potato starts to brown (don’t stir too frequently to allow potatoes to crisp).
  • Create 4 wells in the hash and break an egg into each hole. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your preference. Note, the eggs will continue to cook once removed from the oven so do not overcook.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.



I use leftover potatoes if I have them. If you don’t have leftover potatoes, either boil potatoes until fork tender or bake potatoes in the microwave until cooked, peel and dice. Store bought hash browns can be used in place of potatoes.
Note, the eggs will continue to cook once removed from the oven so do not overcook.

  1. I haven’t tried this yet, but it’s pretty much how I always make corned beef hash, so since I think mine is delicious, I’m giving this 5 stars! I also want to say that I when I make corned beef, corned beef hash is the first meal, then if there’s leftover meat, I’ll make a sandwich!5 stars

  2. This is a great recipe. The only thing I did different was dice fresh peeled potatoes and browned those along with the onion and pepper, rather than use leftover precooked potatoes. I like my potatoes crunchy. I have added a dash of dried thyme, or fresh if I have it on hand, just as a personal preference too. If I don’t have green peppers on hand, I do use whatever color I have in the fridge.5 stars
