I found two ziplock bags filled with recipe's. One filled with my parents recipes, the other with my grandmother's recipes. This one came from my grandmothers recipe bag. I love corned beef hash and this one is especially good because of the beets. Adds a wonderful flavor and no one has to know they're in there, but you! Enjoy~

PS. I remember the story about the 'red flannel' part of the recipe, as in 'Why red flannel?' It was quite a scandal in the 60's. Apparently, when Bette Davis would make this dish, a Red Flannel Shirt was all she wore! Even if it's not true, sure makes a good story.

How to Make Bette Davis' Red Flannel Hash

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop corned beef and potatoes into bit size pieces. Finely dice beets and combine with corned beef and potatoes.
  2. Season corned beef mixture with salt and pepper, and add a dash or two of cream, just enough to moisten meat mixture. Heat a large iron skillet on medium heat. Add 2-3 tablespoons butter, enough to coat the bottom of the skillet and add corned beef mix. Stir and spread evenly over bottom of skillet.
  3. Cook corned beef like you would hash browns. I mash the mixture down into the pan and cover with a lid. Cooking one side, flip and cook the other side. Once both sides are browned, about 5 minutes on each side, I stir it all up, to mix the browned bits with the inside bits.
  4. Reduce heat to med-low, drop eggs, one at a time, onto the hash, cover with lid and cook 3-5 minutes or until desired doneness. OR you can poach the eggs separate and serve with the eggs on top. Enjoy~
