Mix all ingredients together. Butter hamburger buns and spread mixture on fairly thick. Wrap individually in foil.


Broil 20-25 minutes. These are great man-sized sandwiches and they freeze and keep well.

I make it into a sandwich spread. Just like tuna salad.
Rinse the corn beef under hot running water to melt off the extra fat.( I do this in a strainer) Break up the meat and add diced boiled eggs. relish, diced onion and mayo or salad dressing. You can also add diced celery if you want more crunch.

My English mother-in-law taught me to make this...the best recipe I've ever seen for canned corned beef and great on cold days.

Mash the corned beef into the bottom of a casserole dish, cover with hot mashed potatoes, top with a thin layer of biscuit dough (Bisquick recipe). Bake at 425 F until biscuit is done. Serve with a rich brown or beef gravy with a side of cabbage. It's great and a real man pleaser.

I am looking for a recipe for something that used to be called "Corned Beef Von Ruben". It was made with canned corned beef and crutons and some sort of cheese. The recipe used to be on a cruton can.

Thanks in advance,

Top with remaining croutons and sliced Swiss cheese. Beat eggs and milk together; pour over croutons. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes or until brown and set in center. Serves 8. Note: Do NOT bake or reheat in microwave oven - it ruins the croutons!

What brand of canned corned beef should I use for corned beef and cabbage?

By Deana from Gaineville, FL

By far the best results I've had in cooking this dish is to use packaged corned beef (in vacuum pack plastic), NOT IN THE CAN. After using corned beef from the meat department at Aldi's, I would NEVER go back to using canned. Yeah, I know my mom always used canned (usually Libby's, I believe), but I'll NEVER go back!

Here's a picture:

DH loves sandwiches made with canned corned beef. Today he used the top of the fridge box for a "cutting board". It doesn't take a sharp knife to cut into a chunk of corned beef so there is no damage to the container or lid.
