How do YOU hash? I’m a hash type of girl, as you may be able to tell:

Why nachos? Well, nachos are life! Seriously, since I began dating Cassidy in 2004, he has impressed me with his nacho making. There used to be a nightclub in San Francisco that we’d go to to play Phish music and pretty much just dance until 2:00am. The club had a kitchen, and the women in that kitchen made the best nachos I have ever had to this day. The obsession started with me during those long, late nights, when I’d be jet-lagged from getting up at 5:00am, driving to JFK Airport, flying to SF, and then attending these parties. I’d go to sleep happy those nights, and after 24 hours awake!

Cassidy and I used to make nachos during the early parts of our marriage. We’d throw anything on that our hearts desired, and that expanded later when I was pregnant. Sometimes it was carrots. Sometimes it was olives. I loved beans. I learned how to eat avocados by living in San Francisco. Always, it was cheese and sour cream. Now that we’re parents and we’re in the middle of the frigid and endless months of a New England winter, I need a little more substance in my breakfasts lately. I need a kick to start my day. I generally need lots of protein and even more flavor. So then I thought of the perfect breakfast!

Breakfast nachos!!
I got the organic corn chips at our local co-op. I also picked up sour cream, cheese and avocados. I got eggs from my mother-in-law’s organic farm (you can’t make this stuff up!) and then I went to Walmart for the pièce de résistance:

Flavorful, hearty, convenient HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Corned Beef Hash.
It’s February vacation for the kids this week, and I’ve wanted to make a special breakfast at least once. We went out to breakfast yesterday, so I knew today was the day for my Skillet Breakfast Nachos. This is a hearty breakfast, which is great because the kids are going to a museum today and then spending three nights with their grandparents. I’m glad I gave them something that will fill them up for the day. I started with cooking up the HORMEL® MARY KITCHEN® Corned Beef Hash.

There’s a bit of a timing concern, as the nachos will still have to cook for ten minutes, but I like to steam my sunny side-up eggs so I left mine in a small saucepan with a cover for about five minutes while the nachos cooked.

I loved the result.

  1. Omg, you just made me look at nachos in a whole new light. Seriously, I have never had them for breakfast here, but thinking I may just have to try after seeing your recipe and yummy photos above!! 🙂

    1. It meant a lot to me that this recipe made you hungry! They were very delicious. And I’m sure glad the egg was photogenic for me! Usually mine look terrible!

    1. I was inspired to make them because I have a very fierce breakfast appetite. And if it’s not something like this, I’m generally hungry again by 10:00am! And reaching for chocolate too.

  2. OH MY GOODNESS… I need this! Seriously! I want to drive to the store right now and get some so I can make it for dinner. Maybe even the next few meals for the foreseeable future. Delish!

    1. I think you’re right! And not only that, I had them for a late night snack last night. I don’t usually like to eat late at night but I was sooo hungry for them.

  3. This brought back so many memories! My dad used to make corned beef hash in a skillet with eggs on top – so good! I haven’t had it in years, but the breakfast nachos sound even better. Will have to give this a try!

    1. Homemade chips are the best, in fact!
      I’d never really had avocado until I lived in California, where of course, it’s the most magical thing ever. So fresh and local and just.. everywhere.
      Now I can’t get enough.

  4. Breakfast is my favorite meal…I would eat this for dinner too! This looks like something you’d be served in a restaurant…you’re an excellent egg cooker, Tamara!

    1. That’s like the one thing I can do! Usually I’m sloppy. For this post, I steamed it in a covered pan for 5-10 minutes. It’s an Alton Brown trick for non-scrambled eggs! It makes them picture perfect.

  5. Wow, that looks so tasty! I just had an amazing corned beef hash last weekend for the first time and I am now a FAN! I had no idea how tasty it is. I will be trying your dish to make at home.

    1. This is really good and easy. And with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, you can make corned beef hash out of corned beef and cabbage leftovers. YUM.

  6. Hi Tamara, The most exciting thing we’ve ever done with Nachos, is to cover them in sweet chilli sauce, pile them up with grated cheddar and grill until hot and bubbly. Your recipe does sound nice, we don’t get corned beef here, but I’m sure I could try it with something else instead. A perfect ‘bad’ Friday meal.


  7. If my husband ever taught me anything about food, it’s that pretty much anything is improved with a runny egg. Nachos for breakfast seems like a great way to start off Cinco de Mayo! (it’ll be here before you know it)

  8. I never thought of nachos for breakfast but I eat dinner foods for breakfast all the time, so why not nachos?! Yum!
