St. Patrick’s Day has its many time-honored traditions, from wearing green, drinking a pint of stout, and of course, corned beef hash. But this isn’t a corned beef hash recipe, exactly. This is a recipe for what to do AFTER the party has ended. A corned beef hash with eggs is one of my favorite ways to use up any leftover corned beef. Especially when it’s topped with a perfectly cooked egg. Hungry for a big brunch or looking for a hangover cure, this corned beef breakfast hash is just the solution.
2 ½ cups cooked corned beef, cubed
2 russet potatoes, cubed (about 1/4 -inch dice)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon cooking oil
¼ cup unsalted butter
¼ cup low sodium chicken stock
4-6 large eggs
Optional garnishes: 3 green onions, thinly sliced and 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large (10-inch) cast-iron skillet or nonstick, oven-safe skillet, sauté potatoes in olive oil until just softened.
Add butter to skillet. Sauté diced yellow onion, a teaspoon of kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Continue to sauté until potatoes and onions are softened, 3-5 minutes.
Add diced corned beef to the vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side. Flip after 3 minutes and press into the pan with the back of a spatula.
Pour chicken stock over top of the hash. Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
Top with your choice of cooked egg: fried, poached, or over easy. Optional: use a spoon to create a well for a freshly cracked egg, 4-6 wells for 4-6 eggs. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F for 8-12 minutes, depending on desired doneness for the eggs.
Serve directly from the skillet. Garnish with optional toppings: fresh cracked black pepper, green onion slices and chopped fresh parsley.
