5 Ingredient Recipe

Corned Beef – The canned version of corned beef works great as a substitute for leftover corned beef! Otherwise, use deli corned beef, diced ham, or bacon crumbles.

Vegetables – Stock up on frozen peppers, onions, and potatoes when they’re on sale and use them in everything from a breakfast casserole to a zesty steak stir fry.

Eggs – You can use 3-4 large eggs or 5-6 small eggs.

Variations – Use leftover mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or hash browns. Toss in mushrooms, cabbage, or corn.

How to Make Canned Corned Beef Hash

  1. In a skillet, saute corned beef and pepper-onion blend in butter. Remove and set aside.
  2. Cook potatoes in the remaining butter.
  3. Add corned beef mixture back to the pan.
  4. Add eggs and bake (per recipe below).

Serving Suggestions

Homemade canned corned beef hash is delicious with a dollop of sour cream, salsa, Tabasco, ketchup, or chili sauce. For breakfast, serve canned corned beef hash with a side of fresh fruit and orange juice, or if serving as lunch or dinner, a light and tangy cucumber radish salad.

Storing Corned Beef Hash

Keep leftover canned corned beef hash in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

For best results, reheat in the microwave, but remove the eggs so they don’t become rubbery.

Roll up leftover hash into portable breakfast burritos, or form into patties and fry in a skillet. Freeze leftover canned corned beef without the eggs in zippered bags for up to one month.
