Red Flannel Hash is a dish that’s just about as New England as you can get! For upwards of a century, this recipe has warmed the bellies of many a farmer and family. Customarily eaten the day after serving a traditional New England Boiled Dinner, the hash is made by chopping the leftover corned beef, potatoes, carrots, turnips and cabbage, and frying it up in a cast iron pan with a big old knob of butter and then topping with soft cooked egg. The “red flannel” part happens with the addition of cooked beets and, in typical Cabot fashion, we’re going to finish it off by topping it all with a big handful of Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese!

To make 2-4 servings of this corned beef and root vegetable hash, heat an 8-10” cast iron pan to medium-high and melt the Cabot Salted Butter.
Combine chopped corned beef and vegetables in a large bowl, mixing to distribute evenly. Add the mixture to the pan and let sit undisturbed for 5 minutes, allowing a nice crust to form.
Carefully turn the hash over and, when you notice a crust forming, and the hash is heated through, sprinkle a handful of Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese on top. Turn off the heat and place a lid over the top to melt the cheese and keep the hash warm.
Heat another pan for the eggs (if poached eggs are desired, bring water to a simmer instead). Add butter to melt and then fry your egg(s) however you prefer them (i.e. sunny, over or poached).
Once eggs are done, you can serve this dish one of two ways: 1) Keep the hash in the cast iron pan and top with eggs, serving from the pan or 2) Plate the hash and then top with eggs.
Serve with a side of apple cider vinegar, horseradish or more cheese!
