I just realized my posts this week have been all about bananas or breakfast. That ends after today though, mostly because I’m out of bananas.
Let’s talk about corned beef hash. This is another thing I hated when I was a child. I didn’t understand corned beef at all. Why would cooked meat be pink!? It grossed me out. But now I love it!!
Since this is a quick corned beef hash I used Boar’s Head Corned Beef. It’s not the same as cooking in the slow cooker all day, but I think it’s pretty darn good.
The most important thing you can do is use a food scale to weigh the corned beef. If you are using Boar’s Head it calculates to 1 point for two ounces, 2 points for 3 ounces, basically the points change for every ounce. The food scale is a must for me while doing Weight Watchers.
I also used frozen cubed hash browns to make this recipe quickly. This is something I almost always have in the freezer. The first time I did Weight Watchers was when my oldest daughter (who is 15) was a baby. Every morning I would have 1 scrambled egg, 1/2 of an English muffin with raspberry jelly and 1/2 cup hash browns. I don’t remember what the points were, but I looked forward to that breakfast every morning!
Here are a few of the things I used for this recipe:

Yield: 2 Servings (3 Freestyle points per serving)
- 1 1/4 cups frozen hash browns
- 3 oz. Boar’s Head corned beef
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons onion, chopped
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Spray a medium frying pan with no stick cooking spray. Add the hash browns, onions, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Cover and cook 4 minutes. Stir potatoes, then cover them back up. Cook 4 more minutes.
While the potatoes cook, chop up the corned beef. After 8 minutes of the potatoes cooking add the corned beef and cook for 2 more minutes, or until the corned beef is heated through.
Spray another pan with no stick cooking spray and cook the eggs how you like them.
Divide the corned beef hash into two servings with the eggs.
