Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash

Another classic way to use some leftover corned beef is in hash which at its base is a mixture of cooked corned beef, potatoes and onions and it is fried up for breakfast. This is a pretty easy recipe where you simply take some sauteed onions, add the corned beef along with cooked potatoes and fry it all up. The key to a good hash is the frying; you want to pack the hash down in the frying pan and let it fry until it is a nice deep golden brown and caramelized and then flip it and repeat. Although this dish is pretty simple, it is full of flavour because of that caramelization and it is pure comfort food that is great for breakfast the day after St Patrick's Day. When I made my corned beef dinner the other night I made sure to throw in enough potatoes that there would be some leftover for the hash the next morning and with the cooked corned beef and cooked potatoes ready this dish is really easy to make taking almost no time at all. Of course pretty much everything is better topped with a fried egg with a runny yolk!

Now THIS is the recipe I've been waiting for. I find something about a good hash to be so appealing. And You can never go wrong with a dish that is topped with a sunny side up egg.

I LOVE has, corned beef, beef, ham (I can't get corned beef), pork...
Topped with an egg or 2 - perfect for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner - too much work in the morning ;-))

Hash shouldn't be confined to corned beef. I have made an excellent steak hash.

Corned beef hash is one of those magical Saturday morning brunch dishes from childhood, and I still can't get enough of it. Last week we were out for breakfast and had my heart set on an omelet, but when I saw that hash was on special there was no debate!

I always want to make hash with leftover corned beef, but we so love just corned beef in general, we never seem to have leftovers! Maybe I should just make a corned beef specifically to make this Corned Beef Hash!

This is perfect! I love the egg on the top and it looks like the yolk is runny. I love those kinds of eggs.
