Corned Beef Hash Patties

Corned Beef Hash Patties

September 27:
National Corned Beef Hash Day

Hawaii locals love their canned meats! Besides Spam, corned beef is another favorite food. Whenever we get together with fellow “expatriates” for a Hawaii homestyle get-together on the mainland, our friends Patrick and Phyllis S. often cook corned beef hash patties because they are a popular pupu. They are so ono (delicious) that they are eaten quickly. Add some aloha to an appetizer tray and cook corned beef hash patties on National Corned Beef Hash Day!

Recipe

(Adapted from Patrick and Phyllis S.)

Version I

  • 3-4 jumbo potatoes (Russet)

  • 1 can (12 ounces) corned beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (if mixture is too wet)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Refrigerate the soft mixture for 2-3 hours to firm up. Shape mixture into 2-inch round patties. Refrigerate for at least another 30 minutes. Heat a little oil in a skillet. Place a few patties (do not overcrowd) and fry over medium high heat until the bottom is browned and crisp. Carefully flip the patties over and continue frying. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
