When I was growing up, my mother, who worked full-time in a factory needed easy, fast meals for the week nights. She would frequently make this delicious hash. When I was married, she told me how to make it and I've made it a favorite of my family for many years. I've put it in a recipe format to share with y'all. This is a great comfort food and is sooooo good, especially when it's cold outside. Hope y'all enjoy!

5-6 medium potatoes
1 medium to large onion
1-12 ounce can corned beef
1/2 stick butter
1/4 to 1/2 cup half and half or milk (you may also use evaporated milk)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel and cut up potatoes. Peel and quarter onion. Place potatoes and onion in dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and return to dutch oven.
Remove corned beef from can and cut into pieces. Add corned beef, butter, salt and pepper to taste. Add half and half a little at a time until reaching the desired consistancy (it shouldn't be dry, but it also shouldn't be runny). Cook on low to medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes or until heated through, lightly stirring occassionally.
Serve with vegetable or salad and rolls or biscuits.
VARIATION: You may also add one can of whole kernal corn (drained) prior to heating, if desired.

Hey there Laura! That sounds very good. I have also made patties out of the left overs and served them for breakfast with eggs. I'll have to try rolling them in flour and see how they turn out. Thanks for sharing!
