Enjoy this delicious start to the day with this Hearty Corned Beef Hash, packed with potatoes, peppers, onions and topped with cheese and an egg – you’ll look forward to this all week long!
It’s well documented that I love a good hearty breakfast, especially on weekends. Being able to use up leftovers is an added bonus! This particular hash is made from freshly shredded potatoes, freshly diced onion and peppers – it’s just the beef that is from leftovers! It reminds me very much of a dish we eat in New Zealand called “Bubble N Squeak” where you basically cook last night’s leftover mashed potatoes and meat in a pan with some vegetables (can vary from cabbage, carrots, parsnips). It’s kind of similar to Colcannon – which is eaten around St Patrick’s Day. What it is, is delicious.Love this? Tweet it!Click To Tweet
I buy corned beef when it is on sale and either freeze it right then, or cook it, dice it and freeze in breakfast sized portions. This is just too yummy to only be eaten once a year! It is pretty easy to make, and takes around 15 minutes from start to finish. Just long enough to brew a pot of coffee and set the table. But don’t just think this is for breakfast – this is fabulous ANY time of day. How can you go wrong with this?!
