  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cups diced cooked potatoes, or frozen hash-brown potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped lean corned beef brisket, (4 ounces, see Tip)
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 large eggs


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until it starts to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add potatoes and cook, stirring, until they brown in spots and become crusty, about 8 minutes more. Stir in corned beef and broth and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until liquid is absorbed, 5 to 8 minutes. Add parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, fill a large skillet with 2 inches salted water and bring to a gentle simmer. Break eggs, one at a time, onto a saucer and slide into the simmering water. Poach eggs until set to desired firmness, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Divide hash among 4 plates. Place eggs on top of hash.
  • Tip: Corned beef can be purchased at your supermarket deli. Be sure to specify lean: it has 1 gram fat per ounce and an ounce of regular corned beef has 5 grams fat.

Healthy Alternative We enjoyed this breakfast. It was a great use for leftover corned beef. I had a bit of difficulty getting the crisp I wanted on the potatoes, but did like the flavors. We added pepper to season but not salt due to the corned beef. I also added diced green peppers to the onion mix when I sauteed. Next time I am going to try this with leftover chicken... even healthier. Pros: Less fat that traditional corned beef hash, easy to prepare Cons: Had a hard time achieving the crispy potatoes
