Corned Beef Hash British Style

Recipe by  

"This is my husband's favorite meal. I always had a different version of Corned beef hash until I met my Scottish husband who taught me how it was meant to be made. It is a wonderful casserole type dish that is very filling and perfect for cold nights in. Serve with vegetables or crusty French bread."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pot with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash, flavoring with milk, butter, salt or however you like to make them.
  3. Pour the baked beans into the bottom of a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Slice the corned beef and arrange on top of the beans in an even layer. Season with a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Top with mashed potatoes.
  4. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes in the preheated oven. The mashed potatoes should start to crisp up but not yet brown. Top with the cheese and return to the oven. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until cheese is browned.

This is one of the first meals i served my french husband when we lived in Brighton. The only difference i make is to caramelise one onion and I also do half mashed sweet potato and normal potato with a little cheese through it. I've also introduced it to my Aussie friends and they love it too!

I tried this recipe, and those that ate it with me - we love it. It was a true success.

I found this a very good recipe for leftover corned beef. I used a little over a pound sliced very thin, for the mashed potatoes I added some sour creamand a few minced cloves of garlic sauteed in a couple tablespoons of butter. I had to leave casserole warming in the oven for about a half hour after baking it, and the cheese formed a very nice crust (I used a little over a cup so it covered the mashed potatoes completely). Overall, a bit starchy, but fine for a cold weather meal, and very tasty with a bit of A1 Sauce on it.

yuk! i made this for a dinner with one of my best friends who is from "across the pond," and she said that there is absolutely nothing "british" about this recipe. neither of us liked it. i'll stick with the more traditional recipes!

Thought I had canned corn beef, but Call me crazy, but used a can of Spam instead. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Will definitely try this as written though. Thanks for the recipe!
