Crispy from the grill with a little bit of onion in it and 2 poached eggs on top.
Our son took his Mother, (& me) out for Mom's Day brunch today at T.C. Eggington's Brunchery in Mesa, AZ.

It's a "Skip & Buffy" place, but good. I had a Crab Stuffed Pastry - fresh baked pastry shells stuffed with artichoke hearts and lotsa crab meat, topped with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Homefries and fruit on the side. Very Good! $8.95.

Without the crusting, hash has no character. Plus, the crusting carmelizes the hash, bringing out some nice sweetness.

Had a wonderful corned beef hash omelet Saturday morning!  Hash had been grilled on the flat top to give it a nice crust first,  then added to a 3 egg omelet!  served with wonderful home fries and sourdough rye toast.  Great breakfast treat at the Java Jungle restaurant in Dansville, New York!

Corned beef has seems to predominate in New England.  It's almost always homemade and on the menu at diners and places that specialize in breakfast.  Elsewhere, not as much.

Best homemade Corned beef hash I have had in years was in Jackson Hole, Wy. It was at a Boutique Hotel that included breakfast, named the Rusty Parrot. Nothing like homemade Hash, they also had a Eggs  Benedict served on a croissant, much better than a English muffin....I don't know who came up with the english muffin idea in the first place...pnwc

It was I. It's a long, long story, but the fact is, I was having an English muffin one morning in the Yankee Doodle Coffee Shop in New Haven before school and I thought, "Y'know, if you were to top each half of this thing with Canadian bacon, and then top both slices of the Canadian bacon with poached eggs, that would be great." And then I thought, "Wait just a darned minute. How 'bout napping the whole thbing with a sauce -- maybe Hollandaise. Yeah, that's it." But then I had to head off to Hillhouse for my first class and someone stole my idea, added a slice of black truffle atop the Hollandaise, and that was that.

Good Idea Mr H..it really was outstanding as far as amount of meat -potato mixture except for that all important last step...this place though is kind of foo foo- has a chef instead of a cook- if they balk ,I'll walk...We have another breakfast place in town where the chef refuses to serve ketchup because his dishes `do not need condiments'...I decided his plave does not need me , thoughI have heard there is a brisk biz in black market ketchup packets in the parking lot!

I share your pain on this but I did discover a place in Westerville called The Best Breakfast and Sandwiches that makes their own corned beef.  It was featured on that PBS about breakfast and I finally made it there a couple of weeks ago.  The hash was really good and they do fry it up pretty well.  You get a ton of it.  Though since it is really large chunks I can't say that it got really crispy like some of the other ones shown here.  There is a picture on this review done by a local blogger ( I beleive he was also featured in that PBS special):

New England definitely is hash central, but Milwaukee -- a great corned beef city -- also has what I consider to be some of the best corned beef hash anywyere, at McBob's. It is as luscious as they come.

Oh, that corned beef at McBob's looks great.  It is so different from any other corned beef I have had, it is almost like a completely seperate dish.

I wasn't too familiar with corned beef hash before moving to Connecticut.  I've tried it at a few different places.  The best I've had so far has been at the Cromwell Diner:


 
They also do a chorizo hash, and I love chorizo, but it just tasted off to me somehow:


 
Here's Mitchell's on Main's take. I wasn't too impressed by it.  Maybe I just don't like crusty hash:


 
I liked the Olympia Diner's even less.  Very mushy:


 
I wasn't sure what condiment to use, but ketchup turned out to work very well.  Liberal amounts of it helped lift up the last two.

Fresh from this morning at Even Stephen in Berlin, CT:
 

 
Not quite as good as Cromwell's, but well-cooked all the same, and far above Olympia's mush.
 
Cozy little place, too.  This thread says they have creamed chipped beef on Sundays, so I'm definitely going back for that.  I can't remember the last time I saw that served anywhere.

Just came back from a short road trip to Saratoga, NY to spend a day (losing) at the races.  Stumbled on "The Kettle" - great place for breakfast and lunch, but mostly great for their home made corned beef hash.  Nice and crispy, large portion, and best of all, I was able to bring some home for leftovers!

While I'm more familiar with roast beef hash than corned beef, my favorite is ground rather than chunked and a crust is necessary.  No eggs for me but the condiment of choice is A1.

I made the corned beef hash yesterday…easy & delicious! I cook my 1/2 head of cabbage and add 1 onion chopped with a can of tomatoes and then the can of cornbeef. I make a slaw from the rest of the cabbage. This is a good and quick meal. Hope you enjoy it.

I had some interesting CBH a couple of weeks ago at the Cherry Valley Cafe in Cherry Valley, IL.  As far as I could tell it was corned beef, onions, and green peppers, and was served on top of hash browns.  I don't think I've ever seen it this way before, but it definitely did not come from a can!
