Looking for an idea to cook for that special man in your life this Father’s Day weekend?
This is your answer – especially if he’s are a meat n’ potatoes kind of man.
When I first thought about this recipe I had googled to find some help, and all I could find were recipes that used the canned corned beef hash — gross. To me that just reminds me of dog food. But whenever my family makes fresh corned beef hash – I can’t get enough.
This recipe combines the homemade hash with a simple egg bake that can be partly made the day before.
I N G R E D I E N T S :
(makes one 9×13 inch pan)
1 package corned beef, cooked and shredded
2 medium sized potatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 to 1/2 cup half and half (depending on how fluffy you like your eggs)
1 1/2 cups swiss cheese, grated
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
salt + pepper
P R E P A R A T I O N :
To make this partially the day before, cook your corned beef according to package directions. While that is cooking, take your potatoes and cut them into half-inch cubes. (As you can see above, I originally made this with sliced potatoes, but by cubing them it will make the bake easier to eat)
Heat the olive oil or butter in a pan and add in the chopped onions and cubed potatoes. Saute for about 7-8 minutes, just until the onions start turning clear and potatoes are starting to get soft. Season with salt and pepper to liking.
Butter the bottom of you baking dish and then add the potatoes and onions to the bottom. Layer the cooked and shredded corned beef on top.
Refrigerate until ready to bake with the eggs. (The eggs will take about 40 min to an hour to fully cook – so plan ahead).
Preheat oven to 375.
Once ready to prepare, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites and half and half. Once combined, pour the egg mixture on top of the corned beef and potatoes.
Top with grated swiss cheese and chopped scallions. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 35-40 minutes, or until the cheese on top begins browning and the eggs are set.
Cut into squares, serve with some extra crispy bacon and enjoy with that special man in you life!
Happy Father’s day to all the dads out there!
And a very Happy Birthday and Father’s Day to this man
I love you so much!
