Reuben-Style Corned Beef Hash Recipe

If you’re a fan corned beef hash and you like Reuben sandwiches, then you’re going to love, love, love my Reuben-Style Corned Beef Hash recipe!

Corned beef hash may be the perfect St. Patrick’s Day breakfast, but the moment I hear the words “corned beef,” my mouth automatically starts watering for a Reuben sandwich. Which got me thinking, why not combine all the amazing Reuben flavors I love with the crispy, crunchy potato-y goodness of corned beef hash? So I gave it a whirl.

Guess what? It’s incredible. Think, golden crispy potatoes and onions, salty meaty corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, creamy Swiss cheese, rye toast croutons and, of course, thousand island dressing. This one has it all and more.

The hash alone would make an amazing dinner. Just pair it with a salad and you’re all set. But I went the breakfast route, and you know what that means? Yep. I put an egg on it.

This is hangover food at its finest, my friends. If you’re planning on indulging in a few Irish beverages this St. Patrick’s Day, stock your fridge beforehand for breakfast the next morning. You’ll feel lucky that you did!
