A hash is known to have meat, potatoes and onions fried in a skillet. It is a great way to use up leftovers from a traditional meal. The combination can be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It has amazing flavor and can have many variations.

Corned Beef Hash Ingredients:

  • Butter: This is for the skillet and creating that crispy outside for the potatoes.
  • Potatoes: Diced potatoes evenly.
  • Bell Peppers: Red is my favorite and brings out some color in the potatoes.
  • Onion: Chop up and add to the skillet to be cooked.
  • Corned Beef: Use leftover corned beef that is already cooked.
  • Italian Seasoning: So many seasonings in one bottle.
  • Eggs: Make the eggs just how you prefer and add them on top of the potato blend.
  • Salt and Pepper: Just a pinch!
  • Red Pepper Flakes: Add a little bit of spice if you prefer.

How to Make Corned Beef Hash:

  1. Cook potatoes on the skillet:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a medium sized skillet, melt butter then add diced potatoes. Cook 5-7 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and slightly crispy. Add bell peppers and onions, and cook 4-6 minutes until tender. Add the Corned beef and cook until warmed and slightly brown.
  2. Cook the eggs: Crack the eggs on top of the hash.
  3. Bake the hash in the oven: Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until eggs are set.  Season with salt, pepper and pinch of red pepper flakes.
