This creamy potato chowder is comfort food times 10. We added a fresh pop of flavor with these tasty micro greens but you can add chives, fresh thyme or parsley or just eat it as is.

Man oh man, we love corned beef hash more that we can tell you. Add a runny fried egg on top and you’ve got a breakfast, brunch or dinner recipe that will blow everyone away.

Of course, hash is served for breakfast but also do try it for dinner with a crisp glass of white wine or a cold beer…it’s delicious!

Corned Beef and Brussels Spaghetti

One of our new favorites, this pasta recipe has it all. A little bit healthy, a little bit indulgent and SO easy to make. This recipe uses whole wheat spaghetti tossed with shaved brussels sprouts and that leftover corned beef in a light parmesan cream sauce.

No leftover corned beef? Try using bacon or pancetta or leftover ham!

Corned Beef Irish Nachos

Corned Beef Irish Nachos are an amazing corned beef leftover recipe for appetizers or dinner!

We’re taking our BEST Leftover Corned Beef Recipes to whole new level here with the Irish Nachos! Irish Nachos actually use thin sliced, fried potato slices for the “chips” instead of tortilla chips and they are crazy, crazy good.

We used a nutty Swiss cheese for this nacho recipe but you can really use any cheese that you like. Gruyere, sharp Irish cheddar or a more mild Monterey Jack would all be great options.

Cheesy Corned Beef Tater Tots

Let’s talk about some super delicious leftover recipes here…these homemade tater tots are IT. Cheesy, fried tater tots with big pieces of leftover corned beef tucked inside, I’m telling you these are highly addicting.

Use a Russian or Thousand Island dressing for dipping, or try our popular Awesome Sauce, or just stick to regular ol’ ketchup.

Corned Beef and Cabbage Fried Rice

Corned Beef and Cabbage Fried Rice is a leftover corned beef recipe turned into fried rice

When all else fails, we turn to fried rice. There’s usually not a week that goes by that we don’t make Chicken Fried Rice or some sort of fried rice recipe. Fried rice is a great leftover recipe because you can really add almost anything to it.

This version uses leftover corned beef AND leftover cabbage so nothing has to go to waste.

Corned Beef Stuffed Mushrooms

Corned Beef Stuffed Mushrooms are going to be a hit on St. Patrick's Day!

Kick up the appetizers with these cheesy corned beef stuffed mushrooms! We love this recipe so much that we make it pretty often. Just head to your deli counter if you don’t have any leftover corned beef and they’ll slice some up for you.

While these mushrooms are perfect for appetizers, they are filling enough to serve along with a nice salad on the side for a light dinner too!

Reuben Fritters

Reuben Fritters are a fried appetizer recipe

Last but not least on our BEST Leftover Corned Beef Recipes are these Reuben Fritters. Little deep fried balls of deliciousness, these babies are going to steal the show. Cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, sauerkraut and your leftover corned beef make up the filling.

Next, they get coated in panko bread crumbs and fried for the most tasty little bite. Dip into Russian or Thousand Island dressing for the perfect reuben flavor!
