Corned Beef Hash is a delicious and savory dish made with cubes of beef, potatoes, onions, and some simple seasonings. This classic diner-style breakfast is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, or the day after with that leftover corned beef. Serve it with eggs, coffee, and toast, so you can fill up before the day starts!
What’s in Corned Beef Hash
You only need a few ingredients to make this Irish breakfast staple. It’s hearty, savory, and easy to make!
- Corned Beef: Cut this salt-cured beef brisket into small cubes to make hash.
- Potatoes: I used a mix of red and white potatoes, cut into cubes. Cut them the same size so that they cook evenly.
- Butter: I like salted butter to add more flavor, but you can use unsalted butter.
- Onion: Diced white onion adds a savory flavor to the hash.
- Herbs: Use dried thyme to season the potatoes, and use parsley for garnish if you like. If you want to use different herbs and spices, try rosemary, oregano, or smoked paprika for a little bit of heat.
- Olive Oil: Oil coats the potatoes to help season them and cook in the oven.
Want to make this cheesy? Cover the hash with Swiss cheese (or your preferred cheese) and let it melt right before serving.

A cast iron skillet is ideal, but any heavy-bottomed skillet will work. You just want something that holds heat evenly. You can also use a Dutch oven, or a heavy-bottomed pot.
How to Store and Reheat
Store leftover corned beef hash in an airtight container, and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply warm it up in a skillet with a bit of oil or butter. You can also just microwave it until warm.
How to Freeze Homemade Corned Beef Hash
Leftover corned beef hash can be stored in the freezer up to 3 months. Thaw it before reheating. Potatoes may change texture when frozen and reheated, but small cubes like this are usually fine.
What Goes with Corned Beef Hash
Top your corned beef hash with a fried egg, or any style of eggs you like. For a classic diner-style breakfast hash, add toast and coffee. I recommend making toast with rye bread, sourdough, or beer bread, then slathering it with creamy butter. Or try these gluten-free biscuits! This hash also goes well with fried cabbage and bacon.
