You may think of corned beef hash as a more suitable solution for breakfast on St. Patrick’s Day or perhaps for post-St. Paddy’s Day leftovers, but it’s also great for Christmas morning breakfast, brunch, or any random Tuesday morning.
I’ve made some major improvements in this recipe since the last time I shared it with you. I hope you like them. Simple to put together, very filling, and always delicious, this corned beef hash is what’s on my menu for Christmas morning.

My family loves to add guacamole, corn and black bean salsa, hot sauce, and / or queso dip to this corned beef recipe. I generally put out a jar / bottle of each so everyone can add toppings and sauces according to their own personal tastes. I also make plenty of toast to serve with this recipe, and occasionally we’ll even top the finished corned beef hash with sausage gravy for a truly indulgent breakfast – that’s perfect for holidays and other large family gatherings.
