Weight Watchers Friendly Recipe: Leftover Corned Beef Hash
Corned beef hash is a quick and easy way to turn your leftover corned beef and cabbage ingredients into a hearty and delicious breakfast, brunch or casual supper.
It’s not something I cook very often; but about once a year, usually right after St. Patrick’s Day when the fridge is full of the required leftovers.
While corned beef hash is fine on it’s own, I like it best with a fried or poached egg on top.
And the next time I make it, I’m going to use some of the suggestions I’ve discovered to boost it’s flavor, like adding chopped red bell pepper, minced garlic and thyme.

With *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus (or 8 if you add a large egg), it’s a satisfying meal that keeps me full for hours.
Leftover Corned Beef Hash Recipe Variations:
- More Veggies: Add 1/4 cup finely chopped red or green bell pepper
- Red Flannel Hash: Add 1 cup finely chopped cooked, or canned, beets
- Baked Hash: Spread hash in a butteres casserole dish and bake at 325F degrees for 20 minutes, or until heated through
- Eggs on Corned Beef Hash: Shape the hash into 3-inch round, 1-inch thick patties. Arrange in a greased baking dish, or put in individual ramekins. Press a hollow into each and then break an egg into it. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 325F degrees until the egg white is set, about 25 minutes.
Tips for Making Better, WW Friendly Corned Beef Hash
- Buy thick slabs of corned beef from the deli counter if you don’t have leftover cooked corned beef sitting in the fridge.
- Don’t stir your hash too often while cooking. Allow it to develop a browned crust before inverting it and browning the unbrowned side.
- Try boosting the flavor of your corned beef hash with garlic and thyme (or your favorite spices and seasonings).
