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.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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! Read More

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. Read More

Thought I had canned corn beef, but sadly....no. Call me crazy, but used a can of Spam instead. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Will definitely try this as written though. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My husband really loved this one! I made a few changes...used instant mashed potatoes and I used campbells pork and beans and leftover corned beef from a brisket I made last week. It is a keeper for sure! Read More
