Corned Beef Hash-Stuffed Potatoes with Eggs


  • 4 leftover baked potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika

  • Hot sauce, to taste

  • 3/4 pound deli-sliced corned beef, roughly chopped

  • 1/2-3/4 cup half-and-half or heavy cream (eyeball it)

  • 4 eggs


Pre-heat oven to 400ºF. Slice a thin piece off of the tops of potatoes lengthwise – you want to slice off less than 1/4 of the potato. Scoop out the potato flesh from both cuts of the potato into a mixing bowl and transfer the potato boats to a baking sheet. With a fork or potato masher, smash up the potato in a bowl until somewhat smooth.

Place a medium-size skillet over medium high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Add the onion, garlic, some salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook, stirring every now and then, for 2-3 minutes, until the onions start to get tender. Add the reserved potato flesh and paprika to the skillet, stir to combine and cook, stirring every now and then for 2-3 minutes, until nice and golden brown. Add the hot sauce, corned beef and half-and-half or heavy cream. Heat mixture through and re-season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pile the potato-corned beef mixture back into the reserved potato boats. Bake in the oven until the tops are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. While the potatoes are browning up in the oven, cook up 4 eggs however you like them. Remove the potatoes from the oven and top each with an egg before serving.
