Corned Beef Hash with Root Vegetables
By Chef George Bumbaris and Chef Sarah Stegner
Serves 4 people
Incorporating local ingredients in a traditional recipe adds new flavor and taste to an old favorite. In this we used heirloom squash and parsnips in the corned beef hash.
2 cups cooked corned beef
¼ cup Jalapeno peppers
¼ cup Heirloom Squash
¼ cup Onions
¼ cup Parsnips
2 Tbsp Olive oil
Salt and Pepper
(1/4 cup of each) Dice the vegetables evenly and sauté in a little olive oil with salt and pepper until each vegetable is tender. Then Mix together with 2 cups ground corned beef. Add 1 raw egg. Form into 4 small patties.
In a medium size skillet cook the patties until golden brown on both sides.
Cook 4 farm eggs sunny up. Add salt and pepper. Slide the egg on top of the golden patty and serve hot.
