Corned Beef Hash Recipe

Make Corned Beef Hash “Eggs Benedict”



When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When it gives you corned beef, make corned beef hash with the leftovers. Corned beef hash is a treat. We serve it with poached eggs and ketchup.

This fancier recipe, for Corned Beef Hash “Benedict,” was created by William Oliva, executive chef of Delmonico’s Steakhouse Restaurant in New York City. It turns the corned beef hash into patties that replace the Canadian bacon in Eggs Benedict. A spicy hollandaise replaces the conventional hollandaise sauce.

This recipe is doubly Delmonico’s: Eggs Benedict were invented there in the 1860s (here’s the story).

September 27th is National Corned Beef Hash Day.
