Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs
Yield: 8 servings
For the Poached Eggs:
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 large eggs
Pour enough water into large roasting pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Pour enough water into a large skillet to reach a depth of 1-1/2 inches; add 1 teaspoon salt to skillet and bring to a simmer.
Crack each egg into a separate custard cup. Working with 4 eggs per batch, gently slide 1 egg at a time into simmering water in skillet. Cook just until egg whites are set, about 1 minute (yolks will be only partially cooked).
Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer eggs to prepared roasting pan with water. Reserve skillet with water.
For the Hash:
- 4 cups (approx.) roasted vegetables (from corned beef recipe)
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 2 cups finely chopped corned beef
- Kosher or sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2/3 cup sliced red onion
Chop leftover vegetables roughly and place in a large bowl. Add eggs and corned beef. Season to taste with salt and pepper; stir well. Set aside.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil and sauté onion until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add corned beef hash mixture and cook until golden brown on bottom, occasionally pressing down with spatula, about 4 minutes. Turn hash over in small portions and cook until second side is golden brown, occasionally pressing down with spatula, about 3 more minutes.
Meanwhile, bring water in reserved skillet (from poached-egg preparation, top) to a simmer. Using a slotted spoon, gently transfer poached eggs from roasting pan back to skillet. Cook just until yolks are softly set, about 2 minutes.
Divide hash among plates. Top with one or two poached eggs and serve. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
