What Is Corned Beef Hash?

A 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?!)

Ingredients

CORNED BEEF

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. 

EGGS

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 from dinner, by all means use those (even leftover mashed potatoes will work in this recipe).  In a pinch, you can also use store bought hash browned potatoes.

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 your leftover corned beef! Potatoes, peppers, and leftover corned beef are sautéed until crispy and finished off with a cracked egg and baked to perfection.

  • 3 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 3/4 cup onion (or 1 small onion, diced)
  • 8 oz cooked corned beef (diced (about 2 cups))
  • 3 cups diced cooked potato (see note)
  • 1 green pepper (finely diced)
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • fresh parsley for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F

  2. Heat butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add onion and corned beef and cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon 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).
  4. Create 4 wells in the hash and break an egg into each hole. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
