This Corned Beef Hash is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.
As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day.

Peel the potatoes, cut them into chunks, then cook them in boiling salted water until they are soft.
While the potatoes are cooking wash and roughly chop the spring onions, and cut the corned beef into chunks and set them aside.
When the potatoes are cooked drain them and roughly mash them. You don’t want it too smooth as the hash should be quite chunky.
Mix the spring onion and corned beef into the mashed potato, then spray a frying pan with some low calorie cooking spray and heat it up.
Add the potato mix to the hot pan and allow it to cook until the bottom has browned. Flip the hash over and cook for a few more minutes.
Divide the hash into 3 equal portions and serve topped with a fried egg.

HI, I wondered if the calorie count was with or without the egg?
HollyMonday 27th June 2022
Hey Lottie, anything written in the ingredients list or part of the method is included within the nutritional information so the fried egg to serve it with would be additional. Hope that helps!
Pat HolmanSunday 29th March 2020
It would be helpful if you would post the size of the tin of corned beef as it comes in 2 sizes. Thank you

Can this be frozen after cooking please.
Emma TMonday 11th September 2017
The egg would add some moisture, you could add a splash of milk to loosen it, but may effect how much if crisps up.
Hope you enjoyed them!

I’ve just bought some lean corned beef from the Coop local store so it must be becoming more widely available now…

Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons all have Princes Lean Corned Beef available to order online, so I think they should have it instore too

We like to keep our recipes as quick and easy as possible because we find that if they’re a bit too complicated or time consuming then people are more likely to fall off the wagon 🙂
