recipes that are simple and delicious.
I have a couple of things that I truly love for breakfast. The first is corned beef hash, and the other is a Canadian bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. Corned beef has is something that I learned to make from my dad. It seemed like something he would get excited to make, and overall, his hash was pretty darn good. But recently, Nueske’s was kind enough to send me a package, of which included corned beef hash, and I had to do something with it. I had no clue Nueske’s even sold corned beef hash as I was so used to their other wonderful smoked meats such as their bacon and pork chops, so obviously I was very excited to try their corned beef hash.
The basis of any great hash is great corned beef and potatoes. What I loved about Nueske’s when I opened their package was that the dice of both the corned beef and potatoes was spot on. I was even more excited as I knew their product would be perfectly seasoned.
So as I sat home one morning, I decided that I wanted to make some corned beef hash and eggs, but I also wanted to use some country bread I had recently purchased from the bakery. This is how I came up with the corned beef breakfast sandwich, and it was awesome!
Let’s get started.
Start by taking a 1/2 tablespoon of butter and heat it on a medium skillet on medium to high heat. Add in the olive oil and make sure the butter bubbles.
Crack your egg onto the heated butter and oil being careful not to break the yolk. Season with salt and pepper. You’ll want to cook the egg over easy as it will continue to cook when we build the sandwich.
Butter one side of each slice of bread.
Add another skillet to the stove, and bring that to medium heat. Add one slice of the bread, butter side down, then add a slice of Swiss cheese. Top with the cooked corned beef, top with the cooked egg, then top with the cheese. Add the second slice of bread, butter side up.
Cook for a few minutes, then carefully lift and see if the bottom side is beginning to get nice and golden. Once nice and golden, carefully flip the sandwich over, and continue to cook until that side is nice and golden. Just be careful not to push down on the sandwich as you do not want to break the egg.
When you are ready to serve, simply place the sandwich on the plate and slice on the diagonal.
The end result is a perfect breakfast sandwich. Not only did Nueske’s get it right, once again, with their corned beef hash, but the sandwich itself was awesome. The Swiss cheese is perfectly melted and that egg that oozes into the seasoned corned beef, well, need I say more?
If you love corned beef hash, try Nueske’s. It’s really great, and furthermore, if you love corned beef, try it in a sandwich. Hope you enjoy.
