Ah, brunch! It’s my favorite meal of the day. I can have breakfast and lunch at the same time. Weekends were made for brunch and I was made for weekends. Do you know what else was made for brunch?Corned Beef Hash & Eggs

Easy Corned Beef Hash & Eggs PLUS Spring Brunch Ideas

I’m a Morning Person

I admit I never sleep in. If I sleep past 5:30 am, even on weekends, I feel like I’ve wasted the entire morning. When my kids were little and I was sleep deprived, I made a promise. I promised myself that once my kids were older, I would sleep as late as I wanted to every Saturday morning. No one bothered to warn me that I would become a morning person and never sleep in again.

One of the reasons I love brunch is because I can get up early, go through my morning routine and drink my first cup of coffee all by myself. As the rest of the family slowly awakens, preparations for brunch begins.

Corned Beef Hash & Eggs

You don’t need a special occasion to throw a fab brunch including Corned Beef Hash & Eggs. You just need these tips:

1. Plan Your Menu

Duh! This seems like a no-brainer, but you need to find a little balance here. I like to make sure I serve some breakfast and lunch foods. If I’m feeling really festive, I’ll add a mocktail. If not, juice and coffee work just fine. Eggs are always on my menu.

In addition to Corned Beef Hash and Eggs, I usually serve fresh fruit, tea sandwiches, a sweet element like muffins, doughnuts or waffles, and a veggie tray. Coffee Cake or Blueberry Scones often make an appearance at brunch.

As I plan my menu, I also jot down my grocery list. Then I head to Food Lion to find everything I need for my brunch, including HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Hash. It’s in the canned meat aisle and is the key ingredient in my main dish – Corned Beef Hash and Eggs. You can’t beat the flavor, the convenience or the hardiness of this hash.

Helpful Hint: Make a fab main dish and keep the rest simple.


2. Pick a Color Scheme

This is not the time to use paper plates. I promise you won’t be in the kitchen all day. I have a rule in my house:  The cook does not do the dishes.  Once you sit down to eat, your job is over.

You don’t have to plan an elaborate decor. I usually stick to white and add a touch of color – white vases, pretty flowers, etc.  If I’m celebrating a holiday, I’ll incorporate those colors into my decor.

Helpful Hint: For a fab centerpiece, make lots of small flower arrangements from one large bouquet of flowers. Gorgeous!

3.  Buffet or Sit-Down Affair?

At my house, brunch is always buffet style. I don’t have to set the table and my family and guests fix their own plates. Then we all gather at the table and the fun begins. For me, it’s all about relaxing and catching up – and the food, of course.

Helpful Hint:  Brunch is usually served between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

I always use my trusty old iron skillet when I’m making Corned Beef Hash and Eggs. I’ve had this skillet for over 30 years and it just gets better with age. If you don’t have an iron skillet, use a casserole dish. It’s all good.

Not only is my Corned Beef Hash and Eggs delicious. It’s so easy to prepare and the presentation is beautiful. Your guests will think you’ve been slaving over the stove for hours.

First, I brown frozen hash browns in my iron skillet and cook until tender.

We tried to eat brunch but my husband can’t handle it. He’s a morning person who needs to eat breakfast.

Up Run for Life March 4, 2016 - 12:15 am

I haven’t hosted a brunch per say. We do make breakfast for dinner sometime.

I also haven’t tried hash.

I have never had corned beef hash and eggs, but this look so good! I will have to give this a try at the next brunch I have.

First off this came out perfect. I’ve always been anti beef hash, but I’d not had any since I was a kid. This looks like one I can get down with. I need some diversity in my breakfast menu.

Zan March 4, 2016 - 8:46 am

I cannot believe the recipe is so easy. I recently bought frozen hash brown potatoes and forgot all about it. Plus I have not bought corned beef has in years. I used to eat corned beef all the time growing up but not as a hash. My husband grew up with corned beef hash. Now that I remember the potato in the fridge maybe I should make this. I am always up for easy and delicious weekend breakfasts. Thanks Alli. Love the photos and the recipe looks delicious!

BTW: My mom had an iron skillet when I was little – those things are a hit. I wish I had one, too:)

Mary Edwards March 4, 2016 - 10:26 am

Corned beef hash and eggs is by far one of my favorites. I never knew how easy it was to make!

Mary March 4, 2016 - 11:58 am

Oh, memories My mother would make hash in her cast iron skillet also. I can almost smell it. Brunch is a grea idea

Chantal March 4, 2016 - 2:22 pm

Brunch is my favourite meal! This looks like an amazing recipe but I have never had corned beef before, might have to give it a try.

Emma Spellman March 4, 2016 - 4:20 pm

Corner beef hash by hormel is one of my husband’s weeknesses. I am going to make this for him because he loves the hash and hashbrowns and it just looks perfect.

Cathy March 4, 2016 - 5:30 pm

Brunch is my favorite meal! I love the idea of putting the eggs right on top of the hash browns!

Prairie Gal Cookin March 4, 2016 - 9:00 pm

Would you believe I’ve never had corned beef hash?!? I think I might need to after seeing this!!

This is a great recipe! I don’t eat corned beef myself but I love making potatoes like this for breakfast or brunch.
