Corn Beef Hash With Fried Eggs

A crispy and delicious Corned Beef Hash topped with Fried Eggs is the perfect way to used some of your leftover corned beef from St. Patrick’s Day. While you may be thinking of using some of the meat for a Rubin sandwich, I’d recommend that you not pile it too high and save some for homemade hash. While this dish is perfect for a Sunday brunch, corned beef hash topped with runny eggs makes a great dinner, as well.

Corned Beef Hash Topped With Fried Eggs

Just chop up some of your leftover corned beef and cooked potatoes along with some onions and peppers, sauté them until crispy and finish off with fried eggs and you have a hearty and satisfying meal for anytime of the day.  

Corned Beef Hash With Fried Eggs

Serves one generously, adjust the recipe accordingly.

  • 1 Tbsp. butter or oil, plus more to cook the eggs
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 c. leftover cooked corned beef, diced
  • 1 c. leftover cooked potatoes, diced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 to 3 eggs
  • chopped parsley, optional

Heat the oil in a nonstick sauté pan then add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and sauté until lightly brown. Add the corned beef and potatoes (if you have a cooking press, place on top of the mixture) and cook until the meat and potatoes start to brown, tossing once or twice. Season with salt and pepper, toss. Plate and keep warm. Wipe the pan clean, add a little butter or oil and cook the eggs sunny side up or cover and cook until the whites have set. Slide the eggs onto the hash, sprinkle with some chopped parsley and serve.


Corned beef hash is a warm and savory comfort meal and is perfect any time of day. Served with a side of toast, buttered English muffins or bread of your choice, it makes a terrific breakfast, lunch or if you wish, have breakfast for dinner. Using your left over corned beef and boiled potatoes, adding sautéed onions and red peppers for color, then topping with runny fried eggs, you can create a quick and easy meal that is delicious. Hash is also good prepared with leftover roast beef or pork if you don’t have corned beef. Of course you don’t have to wait until St. Patrick’s day or until you have leftovers again. Buy several thick slices of corned beef at your favorite deli, boil a potato or two and proceed with the recipe.

This is my husband’s favorite breakfast that he orders often when you go out to breakfast and he also loves cooking it. I have to thank him for sharing his recipe and of course for letting his breakfast get a little cold so that I could share a photo of his creation with you, my readers.

    I made corned beef a couple of months ago for a blog post and didn’t make any for yesterday. Now I’m regretting it. I’d love to have some corned beef hash and eggs this morning.

  3. This is the best meal ever! It’s what we will have this evening for supper – if there’s any leftovers at that poinst.

  4. lifeincharente says:

    Sounds delicious but I have never seen corned beef here in our area in France. Have never tried making it myself! Hope all is well, enjoy the coming week. Diane

    Omigosh, this is Phil’s favorite thing. I cooked a corned beef hoping to have enough left to make his some hash for Sunday breakfast, but except for a couple of slices it all got eaten.

  20. Looks delicious for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 🙂

  21. Love this for dinner! Looks delicious!

  25. What a wonderful start to the day, it looks delicious!

  26. That looks mouthwatering, Karen. I can see why it is your husband’s favourite breakfast. It reminds me a bit of Bubble & Squeak that we cook in England on Boxing day using leftover vegetables. 👍

  27. Although I’m inclined to order hash for breakfast out, I’m usually disappointed and get something that kinda reminds me of cat food! I like your husband’s version much, much better!

    A wonderful idea. This breakfast would keep me going all day!

    Oh My Goodness!! That is definitely the way to go with left over corned beef, looks delicious !!

  30. David says:

    My mother made this – and red flannel hash (roast beef and beets) quite often when we were kids – I just love it! I love hash that isn’t a mushy lump on the plate… this looks perfect!

  31. Oh perfect timing – I’ll be making this this week! It is my favorite breakfast too and this recipe looks to be just the one I needed!

  32. Save all of my share of the corned beef for hash! I way prefer it to a Reuben. GREG

  33. Those eggs are perfectly cooked. I would love this for dinner!

  34. Eva Taylor says:

    Corned beef hash is JTs favourite breakfast dish too, he would love this recipe. I didn’t cook corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day so I’ll just have to get some specifically to make this tasty recipe for him.

  35. This is my kinda recipe, for breakfast, lunch or dinner! It’s definitely the ultimate comfort food. I can see why it’s so popular with your husband 🙂

  36. Karen, you are absolutely right, this is perfect for dinner too! Lately, I have been making different types of hashes and cracking the eggs on top, covering up to cook a few minutes, then serving up. Your version is delightful. Thanks for the additional inspiration.


  37. mjskit says:

    My mother used to make a corned beef hash but she never put an egg on top. Oh, now I see what I’ve been missing all these years. YUM!

  38. Awesome idea! I love a good skillet hash for breakfast on the weekends, but I’ve never used leftover corned beef for it. I have a little bit left in the fridge, and I know exactly how it’s getting used now! 🙂

  39. My mom always made corned beef hash with leftovers from St. Patrick’s Day. The addition of bell pepper and garlic is a fabulous way to introduce more flavor! Leftovers never looked better!

  40. For the Love of Cooking says:

    My kind of breakfast! Yum.

  41. pamela511 says:

    Looks and sounds great, Karen! It would work here any time of the day, esp. with those delicious looking eggs topping it! Thanks for sharing!

  45. A classic. And for good reason!

  46. It might sound crazy on paper, but I’ve actually made excellent seitan corned “beef” before and can easily imagine it being delicious in this recipe! I’ll have to make enough to have leftovers next time. 😉

  47. marcie@flavorthemoments says:

    This is the perfect use of leftover corned beef!

  52. Classic comfort food and a big favorite of mine! Your version and image look spectacular. I was inspired to use my leftover corned beef for my take. Thanks.

  53. Oh, this is an all-around favorite in our house! Every loves corned beef hash and yours looks delightful!

  54. Kitty says:

    What a comforting meal, Karen! It’s making me hungry!

  55. Gosh, I haven’t thought of corn beef hash in years! Seems so very retro, but so delicious and comforting!! I have some corned beef stashed in my freezer—good timing!

  56. adina says:

    I had corned beef for the first time about 2 weeks ago in form of a sandwich and found it good. I would love to experiment more with it, this dish sounds perfect for the purpose. 🙂

  57. Sheryl says:

    This looks delicious. Sometimes the left-overs are even better than the original dish. Your comment about the breakfast getting a little cold while you took photos made me smile. That’s a common story at my house. :).

  58. I love hash, and I think it’s the perfect way to use up leftovers, as you suggest. The way you make yours is different from the way I make mine, so I was glad to read about it – I’m always eager to pick up on tricks I don’t know about, like the cooking press. Thanks!

  59. Now that looks like a fun and tasty dish!

  60. ladyfi says:

    This would be nice as a veggie version too!

  61. grace says:

    breakfast of my dreams!

  62. We absolutely love corned beef hash and this version looks super tasty – I like the red bell pepper in it!

  63. handmade by amalia says:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and allowing me to find you, Karen, though I’m quite hungry now. Looks delicious!

  64. You know this is probably my husband’s favorite going out breakfast too Karen! How is it that I’ve never made it!

  65. Amira says:

    Oh, this is my type of dinner. Love the idea so much, I have a lot of egg lovers in my home and I am sure they will be happy to see this.

  66. I like how colorful this dish looks.

  67. This was one of my favourite things to eat when I was younger, you’ve reminded me all about it and I need to give it a try soon!

  68. Doreen says:

    This is one of my husband’s favorites too. The only difference is he doesn’t cook it, just eats it ;).

  69. I Wilkerson says:

    I need to make hash more often!

  70. Egg-topped hash is one of my favorite comfort food meals! –Any time of day.

  71. hotlyspiced says:

    I’ve never made corned beef for St Patrick’s Day. I’d better start that as a tradition. This is a wonderful way to use up leftover corned beef and I love how it’s topped with fried eggs. I’ve been making a similar dish (although it’s vegetarian so not really that similar) but with making a potato rosti filled with cheese then topped with poached eggs. Usually make it on a Sunday night when I just want something comforting, quick and nourishing xx

  72. What a wonderful meal Karen! My little guy with DS and autism will eat next to nothing, but he actually picked up a fork and ate corned beed on St. Patty’s Day. This is a meal that may tempt him– hope springs eternal. Definitely going to try this, thanks for a great idea!

  73. This egg dish would be excellent for dinner!
