Once the hash is assembled, you will need to create four indentations (wells) in the hash in the pan.  Place a raw egg into each well.  If all of the broth (or water) has been absorbed, you may need to add up to 1/4 cup more liquid.    Cover the pan, and allow the eggs to steam in the wells over a low to medium heat.Corned beef hash with eggsYou may have noticed that there are only three eggs in the photos.  There’s a very good reason.  There were only three people home when I prepared this.  I could easily have included one (or possibly two) more eggs in the pan. Corned Beef Hash with eggsOnce they are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, plate each egg surrounded by the hash in which it cooked. Corned Beef Hash with eggsWe like to serve corned beef hash and eggs with ketchup and toast, but it’s delicious just by itself.  Corned Beef Hash with eggs
