Corned Beef Fritters

Cheese & Leftover Corned Beef stuffed into a mashed potato ball, breaded and fried! Dip it in 1000 Island for a full on Reuben experience.

I’m always looking for something fun  to do with my leftover Corned Beef. I know it’s always good the next day just as is, but we so seldom have Corned Beef I really like to do something special. These Corned Beef Fritters are it!

Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef

Corned Beef - Glazed with a Whiskey & Marmalade Glaze that's deep, rich & sweet. Adapted from the Silver Palate.

I make the same Corned Beef & Cabbage every year. Year after year. It’s that good. But every now and then, I’m up for a bit of a change and this year was it. Even this Grandma wants to be a bit “trendy” once in awhile, if there is such a thing as a “trendy” Corned Beef.

Irish Pub Nachos

Irish Pub Nachos - Home-made oven roasted potato chips drenched in wing sauce, cheese, bacon (or corned beef) salsa and dolloped with a home-made ranch!

Ok, so they’re not Irish and they’re not really Nachos. But what they are is ooey, gooey, cheesy potato deliciousness with the spiciness of nachos. And there’s bacon (or corned beef, if you have some) sprinkled throughout. You might call this an appetizer, but for us it was a fun meal.

Reuben Potstickers (Gyoza) with a Cheesy Sriracha Dipping Sauce

First of all, no need for congratulations; I’m not pregnant! If I were, I’d have ice-cream with this. 🙂 I’ll admit, though, this is a decidedly different combination of ingredients, perhaps a bit odd, and it might just cause cravings! Flavorful corned beef, tart sauerkraut, sweet pickle and a touch of cheese all tucked into a crispy, tender pan-fried dumpling. See, nothing is sacred any longer…

Connemara Soup with Bacon or Corned Beef

This is an adaptation of Connemara Soup from the Simon Pearce Restaurant in Vermont. A rich tomato soup flavored with bacon (or as I did today, Corned Beef) and brimming with tomato, potatoes and healthy cabbage. If you’ve made a Corned Beef Dinner, a little left over Corned Beef and the vegetables can be diced up to make this tasty soup. Best of all, you can use some of that broth* from the Corned Beef Dinner, defatted, of course.

Nested Corned Beef Hash Cups with Toast . $3.20

While Corned Beef Hash is wonderful, it does require some attention. These little Corned Beef Hash Cups are not just “cute” they save a bit of the last minute labor. One might very well be justified in feeling quite brilliant bringing these to the table for brunch! A crunchy little potato cup, softer, creamier potatoes in the middle, a layer of Corned Beef and a gorgeous egg on top, done as soft or as hard as you’d like.

Corned Beef Hash

There is Corned Beef Hash, and then there is Corned Beef Hash. I think Hash should be more than some lightly browned “Hash Browns.” At it’s best, it’s a dish with a crunchy crustiness, the outsides of the potatoes golden brown, the insides gorgeous and creamy. The Corned Beef should be crispy with just a bit of give, like a really nice bacon. There should always be a little something fresh. Egg, for me, is always optional, but makes this feel more like a meal.
