Homemade Corned Beef Hash and Eggs
We're cooking up a big pan of Corned Beef and Hash this morning, my friends. Care to pull up a chair for breakfast?
Whenever there is leftover corned beef, corned beef hash is a recipe go-to. It's easy to make, and a perfect way to enjoy the leftovers from your St. Patrick's Day celebration, which is when most people in the U.S. make corned beef and cabbage.
We always have leftovers, pretty much for this simple breakfast or brunch meal.
Never had corned beef hash?
What is Corned Beef Hash?
Corned beef hash is a simple dish of chopped corned beef with potatoes and onions. A "hash" is derived from the French word "hacher" which means "to chop". It is basically any dish made with diced meat, potatoes and spices that cook together.
It is an economical way to use leftovers.
With a corned beef hash, we incorporate corned beef and potatoes with other spices, along with peppers, onions, and some simple spices to round it out. Top it off with eggs and BOOM! Such a wonderful dish.
Corned beef has and eggs. Pure awesomeness.
Let's talk about how to make corned beef hash and eggs, shall we?
Corned Beef Hash Ingredients
- Butter and Olive Oil.
- Yellow Potatoes. Yukon gold potatoes are ideal here, but you can use others. Try it with sweet potatoes for a change up.
- Peppers. Use bell pepper for a milder version, or use jalapeno or serrano pepper (or your favorite hot peppers) for a spicier version to your preference.
- Seasonings. Garlic powder, salt and pepper. I include optional red pepper flakes for a bit of heat. You can use other spice blends to your preference, like a nice Cajun seasoning or blackening seasoning for extra flavor.
- Cooked Corned Beef. This recipe is a great use for leftover corned beef.
- Fried Eggs. For serving. Patty enjoys sunny side up eggs, but you can also poach them.
- For Serving. I prefer fresh chopped parsley, optional red chili flakes, hot sauce.
How to Make Corned Beef Hash - the Recipe Steps
Heat the Pan. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium heat and add butter and olive oil. Melt and swirl.
Spice and Cook the Potatoes. Increase heat to medium-high and add the diced potatoes. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Cook them for 10 minutes, turning to get all sides, until they brown and start to crisp up to your liking.
Peppers, Onions, and Corned Beef. Reduce heat to medium and add peppers, onion and corned beef. Cook for 5 minutes.
Top with Eggs and Serve. Top the pan fried hash with 2 lightly fried eggs and serve with your favorite hot sauce on the side. Patty prefers sunny side up eggs, and I love poached. But I'll take it any way!
Enjoy! This is my favorite corned beef hash recipe around. Such a great recipe.
Seasoning Upgrades. Spice up your corned beef hash with a nice Cajun or Blackening Seasoning Blend when seasoning the potatoes.
Cheese Option. Once your hash is done cooking, top with 1 cup shredded yellow cheddar cheese and cover. Simmer 5 minutes to melt the cheese, then serve.
Storage and Leftovers
Store any leftover corned beef hash in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It will last up to 5 days.
Let me know how it turns out. Enjoy your corned beef hash and eggs. I hope you love the dish as much as we do.
Corned beef isn't something everyone has around often, as it's usually around for St. Patrick's Day recipes, but I think it should be more readily available year round. Look at all the recipes you can make! Also, Mike says don't forget the hot sauce. I say don't forget the Bloody Mary.
