- 2 lbs Idaho® potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 cups leftover corned beef, cubed
- 2 scallions, chopped green and white parts
- ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup whole milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
- 1½ teaspoons black pepper
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Put the potatoes in a large pot, add 2 tablespoons of salt, fill with cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until the potatoes are fork tender about 20 minutes, drain well and place the potatoes back into the pot to cool for about 10 minutes.
- Using a potato ricer or grater, rice the potatoes into a large bowl - you should have about 4 cups of riced potatoes. Add the cubed corned beef, chopped scallions, milk and egg to the potatoes and stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat a cast iron skillet skillet over medium heat with about ¼ cup of vegetable or avocado oil and form ½ cup of potato mix into a round patty. Fry for about 3-4 minutes per side or until it’s a nice medium gold color on each side. Make sure you place no more than 3-4 potato patties at a time in the frying pan.
- Once finished transfer to a paper towel lined baking sheet to drain any excess oil and season with more salt.
- Keep the cooked patties warm in a 200°F heated oven. Serve the patties hot and if desired with a fried or poached egg on the side.
Time Saving Tip: Potatoes can be boiled and riced 1 day ahead of time and placed in the refrigerator before use. You can also use leftover boiled potatoes from a St. Patrick’s Day meal or baked potatoes, you will need about 4 cups of riced potatoes. Leftover corned beef hash patties can be frozen in a single layer on a sheet tray and then stored in a freezer bag for up to 1 month. Remove and heat in the oven until hot before serving.
