If you're like us, you know that nothing quite hits the spot when you need a hearty breakfast like corned beef hash. This recipe will come in handy anytime you need to scratch that itch.

With just a few simple ingredients, this recipe is ready to eat in under an hour. How about that?

Russet potatoes, onion, and corned beef are the base of this tasty meal, seasoned only with unsalted butter and a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Corned beef is a cured with salt and spices already, so be careful about the amount of added salt you use here.

When we made this recipe, we made our meal complete by frying a few eggs to put on top, however, this step is completely optional.

This is definitely one of those meals I can never get tired of eating and the fried egg on top is the perfect compliment. Usually, I'll use freshly peeled and diced potatoes so this will be something new for me to try. Did I misunderstand or are the potatoes supposed to be mashed into the corned beef and onion in the pan?

This looks delicious! Such an easy dinner to make too. I would probably leave the eggs off, even thought my fiancee would probably like it better with eggs... whoops! lol

I really enjoyed the potatoes in this dish and the overall flavor of this recipe.

This recipe was so good! I can't wait to make it for brunch.
