Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs. Designed for breakfast, hearty enough for dinner, and really great leftover.
One benefit of food blogging is that from time to time we have to make a dish more than once. Especially if it’s a holiday themed recipe that needs to get out ahead of time. That’s exactly what happened this year in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day…times three. Yes, we cooked three rounds of corned beef between March 6th and March 17th. One for my New England Boiled Dinner post, one for my office St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon, and one for us to enjoy on St. Patty’s Day.
Red Flannel Hash might be characterized as New England Boiled Dinner‘s better half. As the story goes, no Boiled Dinner is officially over until the last of the red flannel hash is served. And since no boiled dinner has ever been eaten in just one sitting, this heavenly hash is the icing on the cake if you will.
Recipe inspiration you ask? Day after St. Patrick’s Day leftovers meets an open package of wonton wrappers on the second shelf of the refrigerator…and the plotting begins. By the time I woke up this morning they had formed a bond and a plan. When I opened the fridge door the Ziploc bag of wonton wrappers had neatly made it’s way to the top of the container of leftover boiled dinner. Clearly it was a case of love at first sight.
