Corned Beef Hash and Egg Breakfast Squares Recipe

corned beef hash disclosure

My love affair with corned beef hash has started a long time ago when I was just a little girl. #HowDoYouHash #CollectiveBias

It's a keeper. Made these this weekend a great easy brunch recipe. Love the combo of corned beef hash and eggs.

On days off school my mom would take us to this awesome dinner for breakfast. It was my favorite. A bunch of old grumpy guys, metal stools and a real counter like in the moves. We were allowed to order ANYTHING we wanted and I always ordered the corned beef hash. I’ve never been a sweet breakfast girl. I’ll take savory, flavorful, fill you up hash over sugar drenched waffles any day.

Super good. Can't stop making these super easy corned beef hash breakfast squares. Easy brunch recipe

On one trip to the dinner the hash was a little different. The waitress mentioned that they had started making their own recipe instead of the can. All this time I thought my “dream breakfast” was some fancy kitchen concoction. But it ended up being even better in a way since now I was able to buy the one I loved and have it whenever I wanted. I kid you not, to this day you will always find a can of HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Corned Beef Hash in my cupboard. Told you love affair!20 Minute Corned Beef Hash breakfast squares recipe

My favorite way to eat it is cooked on a griddle with a couple of fried eggs so the yolks are all nice and runny in the corned beef but I thought I’d fancy things up a bit today with a super easy entertaining friendly Corned Beef Hash and Eggs Breakfast Squares recipe. These have all the same flavor but bump it up a bit in presentation.

new family favorite recipe. 20 minute corned beef hash breakfast squares. filling yummy and easy

Ingredients

  • Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough (2 tubes)
  • 1 Can HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Hash
  • 8 Eggs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Green Onions and Parsley (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Unroll the dough and separate into two squares. Roll up the edges of each square.
  3. Scoop about 1/4 of the can of HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Hash onto each square.
  4. Top each square with 2 eggs and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake at 400F for 12-15 minutes until the dough is browned and eggs are cooked to your liking. Note that the eggs might still look very wet but will be cooked just pull them out and touch them the first time you make it. Also they may keep cooking a bit while they sit on the pan. These pictured were cooked for 17 minutes and I wish I had taken them out a bit sooner since the whites and yolks were totally set. Still delicious but I you should just know the eggs will seem really wiggly due to the baked nature but they will be cooked.
  6. Sprinkle with green onions and parsley if desired. These can be served fresh and hot or room temp.

We're obsessed with these 20 minute corned beef hash and eggs breakfast square. Very yummy, filly and easyWe're obsessed with these 20 minute corned beef hash and eggs breakfast square. A very yummy filling and easy recipe.

This makes 4 hearty servings. You could even split them up to get 8 smaller servings for a lighter breakfast or if you are serving it with other items. A fun way to do that would be just to make one long sheet and cut them after they are baked or just make smaller rectangles!

Bacon and Cheese Croquettes Recipe

sour dough disclosure

These potato, bacon and cheese croquettes I’m sharing today are SO yummy and as a bonus they are baked instead of fried. #Switch2Sourdough #collectivebias

It's a keeper. Super good potato cheese and bacon croquettes recipe. Freezes great and a great tutorial on how to make your own bread crumbs.

I’m a big fan of croquettes for every day food as well as entertaining because they are easy to make ahead of time and either finish cooking last minute or just reheat.

Breakfast potato bacon and cheese croquettes recipe

These ones are filled with potato bacon and cheese would be a tasty addition to any Easter or Mother’s Day brunch although I have to admit eating them because it was Monday as a good enough reason for us ;) I like using homemade breadcrumbs (directions for those below) since I can use California Goldminer Sourdough Bread which I usually have on hand for sandwiches. Also they get bonus points for their yummy flavor but also since sourdough doesn’t spike your blood sugar as much as other breads it’s one of those little swaps I like to do in my recipes these days.

Easter-Croquettes- ingredients and how to make home made bread crumbs

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C Coarse Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 C Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Medium Potatoes
  • 1/2 C Shredded Cheese
  • 1/4 lbs Bacon
  • 1-2 TBS Green Onions chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Love these croquettes they are a great snack or addition to brunch.

Directions

  1. Peel and boil your potatoes until tender.
  2. Cook and crumble your bacon.
  3. Combine potatoes, cheese, bacon, and green onions and mash together with a fork. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Form into patties. I usually do ovals that are more flat so that they will cook faster but I have also done small balls.
  5. Prepare coating station with a bowl with the beaten egg and a separate bowl with the bread crumbs.
  6. Coat the potato forms with flour and then roll in the egg and then the bread crumbs. Repeat for all pieces.
  7. Spray generously with spray oil on both sizes and bake in a preheated oven at 450 F until golden brown about 15 minutes. Flip around the 10 minute mark.

One of our new favorite brunch recipes. Bacon and cheese potato croquettes

They are so good and easy. The recipe makes about 10 small (2x3x1 inch) croquettes. They are very filling and hearty. If serving as a side you only need 1-2 pieces. The recipe can easily be increased or decreased too and they freeze great.

How to make panko bread crumbs. Great homemade breadcrumb recipe

If you don’t already know how to make homemade bread crumbs they are super easy. I think it gives it that little extra something (plus you know exactly what goes into it). I like using California Goldminer Sourdough Bread that’s baked fresh daily at Smith’s and other Kroger stores. It is a sandwich loaf that you can find in their bakery section not the bread aisle.

California Goldmine Sourdough bread

To make the bread crumbs lay your bread onto a cookie sheet and dry it out by baking it at 300 F for about 15 minutes. Then just pulse it in your blender or food processor until you have coarse crumbs. This is a great way to use up extra bread that you might have left over from sandwiches or recipes. I keep a bag full of bread crumbs in the freezer for easy access.

delicious and adorable homemade croutons

And speaking of other uses for extra bread, this weekend we had a birthday party for my star and moon obsessed little boy and my mom made the cutest (and most delicious) homemade croutons by cutting the sourdough into stars, brushing with olive olive, sprinkling with garlic salt and Italian seasoning and then baking. I just had to share since they were so stinking cute. Learn more about the history of sourdough bread at the California Goldminer’s website, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest and let me know what some of your favorite uses for the rest of the loaf are in the comments.

EASY Marbled Lollipop Cookies Recipe

Have you ever made cookie pops with lollipops? They are so easy and fun and I thought I’d take them up a notch by making them with easy marbled sugar cookie dough.

Made these this weekend. So easy and the sugar cookie recipe is DELICIOUS. Easy flower cookie pops

I’m excited to be sharing this as  part of a National Craft Month celebration hosted by 100 Directions. I really can’t resist Fun Food I think it’s because it happily combines my cooking and crafty sides.

National Craft Month Series with 100Directions.com

I really can’t resist Fun Food I think it’s because it happily combines my cooking and crafty sides.

These are the cutest and so easy. Great lollipop cookies perfect for parties and more. Great recipe and tutorial.

This cookie dough recipe is one of my favorites it tastes great and cuts out shapes wonderfully. When you add the suckers they give the cookies a fun little stained glass window effect and of course you have the built in handle!

Works great! Super fun sugar cookie lollipops. Made these for a birthday party and they were great

World’s Best Sugar Cookie Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • Food Coloring (I like this gel kind)
  • Lollipops (I’ve used Trader Joe’s suckers as well as these mini ones)

Directions

  1. Mix flour, baking soda and cream of tartar in a small mixing bow.
  2. Cream sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract together with a mixer in a separate bowl.
  3. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. If wanting to dye the dough separate out into groups. Add a food coloring until you reach your desired color. I do it in the mixer starting with the lighter color but if you’re doing very different colors it might be worth wiping down or even washing the bowl and paddle in between since sometimes small bits of food coloring isn’t obvious.
  5. Divide into at least 2 balls. If you’re coloring them you’re probably good this is just so you can work with a smaller amount of dough at a time.
  6. Refrigerate at least 2-3 hours.
  7. Roll out dough as thin as you can and layer the second color on top. It’s okay if it doesn’t come up in a nice sheet it will still look fun. Roll into a long tube. Cut arosss to make discs. Press down with a rolling pin and roll a until it’s barely bigger than your cookie cutter. My discs were about 1 inch thick. And then you want to make it about 1/4 an inch thick before you are ready to cut.
  8. Cut in desired shapes.
  9. To make the pops lay a lollipop on top of your cookie, no need to press just lay it where you want.
  10. Bake at 375 F for 7-8 minutes.
