These hash cakes act as the base for these perfectly poached eggs, fresh hollandaise sauce and balsamic glaze. The sweetness of the glaze helps balance out the saltiness of the cakes and bitterness of the arugula. Who needs to go out for brunch when you can make this in under 30 minutes!

Instructions Checklist
  • Place egg yolks, lemon juice, and hot sauce in a blender. Blend until eggs are a pale yellow, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. While the motor is running, add the butter in a slow steady stream until it is all incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium and let simmer until reduced by about half, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  • Combine corned beef hash, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, and parsley in a mixing bowl.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Measure corned beef mixture into 6 patties using a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Place them in skillet; Reduce heat to medium. Fry until just starting to brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat.

  • Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar, and keep the water at a gentle simmer. Crack an egg into a small bowl then gently slip egg into the simmering water, holding the bowl just above the surface of water. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Cook eggs until the whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, and place onto a warm plate.

  • To plate, place one hash cake on a plate, top with a handful of arugula. Place a poached egg over the arugula and drizzle with hollandaise and glaze. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

You can make a lot of these different components in advance to make it even quicker than it already is. The glaze and hollandaise can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use. You can prep the cakes the night before and cook them in the morning. Also, if you are uncomfortable poaching eggs, fried or scrambled eggs would work too!
