Minnesota Cooking: Having my Way with Corned Beef Hash

Updated on May 17, 2016

Call Me Crazy

I have always had a fondness for Corned Beef Hash. I used to be able to get it in little diner cafes but, since America has been going to eating healthier, my Corned Beef Hash seems to have disappeared off their menus.

What I love the most, is having the corned beef hash with a fried egg that has a runny yolk. Hard whites, but runny yolk, so I can mix the yellow yolk with my corned beef hash and then, I like to chew on a piece of toast with each bite.

Oh, and don't forget my Tabasco sauce while we're at it. I love my hot sauce on my corned beef hash. Mmmmm!


Corned Beef Hash is made right here in Minnesota in Austin, I believe, at the Hormel plant. They do their hash alright by me.

The label says to open the can, start up a skillet, break the hash into pieces and fry until crisp. So, I melted a couple pats of butter in a frying pan on medium heat and when my butter was all melted, tossed my chopped pieces of hash on the butter. The mixture in the can is congealed, so it needs to be broken apart so it lays in the bottom of the pan.

As it melts and crisps up, it will become a flat layer of meat and fried potatoes. I fried the bottom for ten minutes, then I took a flat spatula and flipped it over. Then, I left it alone for another ten minutes. By this time, the corned beef was turning a deep, rusty red color.


At this point, I broke a couple eggs open on top of the hash. Then, I smooshed the eggs sideways. I decided that I would do one more egg in the pan itself, easy over. The pan is very hot, so the egg cooks fairly quickly. I used some seasoning salt on the first side, and then, flipped it over. I like my yolks to be runny, and I prefer my whites to be hard. You can tell when the whites are getting cooked, because they start being clear and then, when they are close to being done, they are a white color and you can no longer see through them.


I doubt it, but, the oldest person in the world just passed away the other day, and she was 116, apparently. Congratulations for living so long, and also, congratulations to the woman who is now the oldest living person in the world.

Apparently, they have eaten what they wanted to eat their entire lives. I would assume they've had Corned beef hash my way, once or twice.


If living dangerously means eating Corned Beef Hash and eggs once in a while, so be it.

This time I squirted Buffalo wing sauce across it.
