On St. Patrick’s Day? I think a festive breakfast is a great way to kick off this March holiday, whether you’re keen on adding green food coloring to your eggs or not. In the spirit of green eggs and ham, I really wanted to create a breakfast recipe for St. Patrick’s Day that wasn’t a shade of green.
I’m a huge fan of breakfast hash. In my opinion, breakfast doesn’t get any better than onions, peppers, potatoes and eggs all cooked together in a skillet. It’s a one pot dish that is hearty and satisfying. For me it’s one of those essential techniques or dishes that every good home cook should learn how to make.
For this recipe, I incorporated cabbage and corned beef to really drive home the St. Patrick’s Day theme. Corned beef is cured beef that is delicious but not used that often. It can easily be picked up at your deli counter and this is the perfect recipe to use it in. If I were Alton Brown, I would consider making my own corned beef…but I have no problem taking a short cut here!
Consider making this delicious celebratory breakfast this week! It may not excuse you from pinching at the table in the morning, but the dish is knock-your-socks-off good. Get the recipe here!
