Classic comfort food gets a makeover with Corned Beef Hash Patties. Use up your leftovers the next day to make these crispy, crunchy potato and corned beef filled patties!
You know what I absolutely love about holiday foods?
All the leftovers.
I mean I love eating the food fresh the day it’s made but truthfully, leftover day is always a little more fun. That’s the day you get to go in the kitchen and figure out how to repurpose some already fine tasting food into something even better. Some of my favorite meals came from having too many leftovers hanging around.
While there might be debate on what the ultimate leftover recipe is – my answer is simple, corned beef hash. I can pass on a turkey sandwich and I need to be in the right mood for a toss everything into the pot kind of soup. Corned beef hash? I can eat that anytime, anywhere!
What better time to sit down to some corned beef hash than the day after St. Patrick’s Day?
I’m a sucker for the classic recipe with crispy pieces of potatoes and crunchy nuggets of corned beef tossed throughout but change can be a good and delicious thing!
These corned beef hash patties are the perfect way to use up all your leftovers in a different light! Instead of shredding or cubing potatoes, I’ve gone ahead and used up some leftover braised potatoes from my corned beef bake a few weeks ago. Already soft, these potatoes were mashed, mixed, seasoned and loaded up with cubed corned beef before lightly pan fried into crispy patties.
They absolutely lean more to the potato side than the corned beef side but when is having too many potatoes in your life a bad thing? After all these Idaho Potatoes are packed full of nutrition. You’ve got a nice dose vitamin C, potassium, a good source of vitamin B6 and they are heart healthy too!
The best part is you can serve these corned beef hash patties up any way you like them. Make a big batch for brunch with a couple of eggs on the side or a light dinner after indulging in your big St. Patrick’s Day meal from the night before! Anyway you slice it, dice it or mash it, these guys are a leftover winner!
