Sharing is caring!

What to do, what to do, with a lowly can of plain old corned beef hash? Wy not have a little fun and make these Cheesy Corned Beef Hash Crescents! These would be especially fun on St. Paddy’s Day for breakfast or brunch!

If you’ve got a can of corned beef hash, a little cheese and a pie crust – – you’re mostly there!

If you want to make this with homemade corned beef hash, go for it! But this was a clean out the pantry kind of morning, and we liked them just fine. 😉

I simply started by frying up the corned beef in a frying pan with a little garlic, onion and black pepper added.

The way to fry this is a little different than what you would normally do. You spoon it evenly into the pan and just let it do it’s thing. Then you turn large areas of it with a spatula. Just fry it until it looks a nice deep color. It’s already cooked, so you really can’t mess this up.

Then, unroll a pastry sheet onto a floured surface, and roll it out just a little to flatten it nicely.

Spoon and spread the meat out all over the top of the pie pastry.

Then place 8 triangles of cheese evenly over the corned beef mixture.

With a pizza wheel, slice just as you would a pizza, into 8 “slices”. Roll each one up starting from the wide end, and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

I placed mine directly onto the baking sheet and mine stuck a little. So make sure you use some parchment underneath.

Whisk up a simple egg wash and brush the tops and sides. Sprinkle them with coarse ground black pepper and pop them into the oven!


That’s all there is to it! 😀

You could add some sautéed cabbage if you like, or use another cheese such as swiss or co-jack, too. Just make them however you like.

We both really enjoyed these cute little buggers all wrapped in flaky pastry! I dipped mine into ketchup, my condiment of choice since a child with corned beef hash! But you can enjoy them plain or even dip into mustard or white peppered country gravy if you’re planning on making some with the rest of your meal!

I just had a few alone, but the hubs thoroughly enjoyed his along with some scrambled eggs. Apple juice also went really well with these! Simple and delicious! Sometimes that’s all you need! 😉


So, if you want something “special”, but easy, on St. Patrick’s Day, you might want to give these little guys a try! Have fun! And enjoy! 🙂
