I was searching for breakfast recipes and found this on several different sites and it looked and sounded so good I came up with my own. They all had basic items in them each with a little twist, so here is my version. Wow, what a rustic meal and I loved the fresh steamed beets in this hash. Next time, I will certainly add more than 3 to the dish. I will also add tomatoes too. I didn't have any or else they would have been in there. This is a beautiful dish and I would hesitate to serve it for breakfast, brunch or dinner. Hope you enjoy my twist on Red Flannel Hash.

How To Make red flannel hash

  • 1
    I steamed my potatoes and then fried them in a pan with a little canola oil. I added the cayenne pepper to my browned and crispy home fries while in pan.
  • 2
    I also steamed my beets and then sliced them up in a bowl to be added to the hash.
  • 3
    Saute your onions, proscuitto and corned beef in 2 tbsp of butter till onions are cooked and meat has a nice brown on it and then add your tomatoes. Add your cognac and cook down.
  • 4
    Add your potatoes and toss together. Season your dish accordingly with garlic salt, pepper and a little more cayenne if you like it spicy.
  • 5
    Now add your beets to the mixture. (Add more butter if necessary).
  • 6
    Now if you are preparing this for breakfast or dinner and want to add eggs then you can cook them right on top of the hash as you see here. I like my eggs more over easy so I just put a lid on the hash and it cooked the egg perfectly.

    Then plate up your Red Flannel Hash with or w/o eggs. Serve with some Pumpernickel Rye bread which would be a beautiful contrast or your favorite bread.
