Corned Beef Hash With Baked Beans And McCain Oven Chips
I was recently contacted by McCain about sharing a recipe, which included something from their frozen potato range, for their ‘Back To Normal’ campaign. We were sent a pack of goodies including an oven tray, serving tongs, oven gloves, enamel plate, egg timer and a supermarket gift card to buy ingredients. All I needed to add was my culinary expertise.
Rather than just use McCain chips, fries or wedges as a side dish, I wanted to share something which made use of my chosen potato product in the actual recipe. Luckily, I knew exactly what to make having prepared this meal numerous times before – a delicious corned beef hash which uses McCain oven chips rather than fresh potatoes.
I first made this meal during my Uni days, however it has continued to make an appearance in our lives since then because it’s easy, tasty and makes use of store cupboard essentials. Sometimes, you barely have any ingredients in the house, so you have to get a little creative with what you have in the freezer and cupboard. Let’s just say that a hungry wife returning from work and a ravenous toddler grabbing at your legs can be a very unforgiving combination.
The beauty of this meal is that you can just use whatever you have laying around as there’s no ‘right’ way to make a hash. If you have an onion, great, then throw it in. If you only have frozen veg, then that’s no probs, use them too. If you have a tin of baked beans, that’s fab, add them to the mix. It’s also a meal which will satisfy the taste buds of everyone in your family – the missus, Toddler L and the dog are all fans of this!
