Last week I shared our traditional corned beef and cabbage recipe, and now I’m back with a great way to use up those leftovers. My husband LOVES when we make corned beef, but it’s always way to much for us to eat in one sitting. So the next day we cut everything up and toss it into a skillet. Less than half an hour later we’ve got a tasty, delicious, filling main dish.

You can easily crack a few eggs over top for even more protein or whip up a frittata like we do. If you don’t have leftover potatoes, you can cube 4 or 5 red potatoes and roast them (or use my favorite Ziploc Zip ‘n Steam bags for ease).

  1. This recipe sounds great and I intend to make it next week with leftovers from today. One question however do you use fresh or dried herbs in this recipe?

    1. I haven’t tried this recipe with the frozen potatoes O’Brien. I imagine you could use them. The flavor/texture might be slightly different, but that may be a good option if you are needing to put the meal together even faster. You’ll have to let us know how they turn out if you try it with the potatoes O’Brien.
