Red Flannel Hash

How to Make Red Flannel Hash from Spinach Tiger

I had my first red flannel hash a few weeks ago at one of Nashville’s best brunch places, the Old School, and you better believe the next weekend I dicing beets and sweets and making my own.

The colors of red flannel hash brighten the morning and heighten the senses. The flavors of earthy beets, sweet potatoes, and bacon marry together well as a tasty setting for oven fried eggs.

Where did Red Flannel Hash come from?

I thought red flannel hash was a southern thing, but learned it’s actually a dish born 70 years ago in Vermont, originally part of a church fundraising supper. It was made with corned beef, which you could still do, but we in the south just love our bacon! Some say it must be served with eggs; others say this is a supper dish and to be served with beans.

We like it for Saturday brunch, when my mom comes for breakfast and wants her biscuits and well-cooked eggs. I have just enough time for fuss and get festive.

Oven Fried Eggs are Perfect for Red Flannel Hash

There are a number of ways to make this hash. Aside from choosing corned beef or bacon, you can mix up your ratio of beets to sweets, substitute white potatoes for sweets, or even purple potatoes which I added the second time I made red flannel hash.

Shallots add the best flavor boost, but red onion will work also. Once the hash is made, add your eggs and stick it in the oven for about seven minutes until the eggs are oven baked, or bake the eggs separately using this recipe.

A few years ago I discovered sunny side up eggs can be made in the oven. 

You can also oven bake your bacon, the same time you roast the vegetables.

The nice thing about red flannel hash is making it your own! The first time I made it I did oven fried the eggs separately and made my famous southern fluffy biscuits.

  1. May God help me. When I looked at the picture, I wanted to dive into the skillet. Looks sell this for sure. I did not care WHAT was in it. I dislike beets. BUT I will try this recipe. I have never heard of golden beets. Where do you find them…I am Mississippi born and raised. Daddy planted beets. They were purple. I also like corned beef. Sounds excellent for new years with cabbage. Because my health is failing and I have always been a very big gal, I have developed several cheats…I use bacon bits. I do eat bacon once in awhile.

    There are various ways, such as breaking them into a pan which already contains almost-cooked bacon and using the residual melted fat of the bacon to cook it, but when I’m on holiday in Greece I like the Greek way.
