Easy Corned Beef Hash with Eggs

corned beef hash with leftovers

You know that pile of stuff some folks think looks like something your cat coughed up that people call Corned Beef Hash? Well, although it tastes pretty good it is a very unattractive dish. After I made some corned beef getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day today, I decided to use the leftovers of the corned beef and of my potato galette to make an easy and delicious version of corned beef hash with an egg on top to for breakfast. It was beyond delicious and pretty too!!

Level of Difficulty:Easy
Time Required:Prep Time – 5min; Cook Time – 15 min

Ingredients:

I made this just for myself for breakfast, it would be easy to portion this for how ever many people you are feeding but cooking the eggs in mass quantities is not easy. I’d recommend for 4 or fewer people.

1 egg per person

about 3oz corned beef, chopped

about 3oz previously cooked potatoes, chopped

salt and pepper

olive oil

How to make easy corned beef hash with eggs:

Drizzle a sauté pan with a little olive oil and place over medium high heat. Add the potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the corned beef and cook for an additional 3 minutes tossing to mix and brown evenly.

Reduce the heat to medium, crack one egg over the top of the corned beef hash and cover the skillet with a lid to keep the steam in (it doesn’t have to fit).

Cook until egg is cooked to desired firmness (or runny-ness in my case).

Add salt and pepper and serve! This is a great use of leftovers and much better than a traditional corned beef hash!!

St. Patrick’s Day Menu

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It’s amazing how many people are suddenly Catholic and Irish! 

This time last year, Melissa made a traditional St. Patrick’s Day Menu for the church group she cooks for once a month. It was so good, we decided to publish it again. Besides, we have grown so much in the last year…some of you may have missed it!

Salad:

Green Deviled Eggs – I found this on FoodNetwork.com .  I left out the ham for this recipe and served the eggs over a bed of arugula dressed with just lemon juice and a touch of olive oil.

Main Course:

Corned Beef – I was ready to make this from scratch and pickle my own brisket, but I just did not have the 10 days to make sure it was really good. As I was going through Costco, I found corned beef brisket ready to cook. Three of those (about 3.5lbs each) was enough for our crowd of 36 today. I followed their instructions on the package to cook, about an hour a pound at 350 degrees, but I did doctor it some by braising it with carrots, celery, garlic cloves and onions too.

Roasted Red Potatoes – what’s an Irish meal without potatoes, really?!

Braised Red Cabbage – I found this on FoodNetwork.com as well. I must have read through 10 braised cabbage recipes until I found this one from Guy. It was exactly what I wanted to pair with the meal. Turned out great.

With Saint Patrick’s Day right around the corner, you may need some good ideas for a St. Patrick’s themed meal.

It was time to cook for the folks at church again today and Denise came and helped me out again! I love hanging in the kitchen together. It really is so much fun. Since St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday, we decided on a complete Irish meal. I researched a lot of recipes and decided on the following. It all turned out delicious!

I bought three of the huge apple lattice pies from Costco. They are always a hit.
