Corned Beef Hash

There are so many vegetables in this corned beef hash recipe that it makes it a full balanced meal for breakfast. Shredded Brussels sprouts would also be great in this dish, maybe?

Ingredients

Meat – 10 oz Corned beef or cooked bacon or ham, cooked

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY CORNED BEEF HASH:

This hash is cooked in two stages.

  • First sauté the vegetables to get them softened and starting to brown. Toss in shredded corned beef and brown it in the pan for a couple of minutes.  
  • Transfer the hash to an ovenproof dish and keep it warm in the oven while you brown the potatoes. Stir potatoes in with the rest of the ingredients. Make 4 wells and crack the four eggs on top of the wells. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 20-25 mins. Enjoy!
