What is a Good Binder for Corned Beef Hash?

March 22, 2022

Cooking hash on a griddle.I recently searched for something to bind corned beef hash to make patties. A series of blog answers came up via this website. Of the few I read, there were suggestions but many still seemed to have difficulty with crumbling. I want to share what I did that worked for me:


Into about one quart of the hash mixture, I added about half a cup of sourdough breadcrumbs that I made from leftover bread I saved in the freezer, then an egg wash of two eggs and about half to three-quarters of a cup of coconut milk (not water, milk). I would suspect that any creamy milk product would work (almond, oat, soy, actual milk or cream, etc.)

I then hard pressed the mix into patties using a patty forming tool. Though I still had to be somewhat gentle handling them at first, they came out great. Topped with over medium eggs, they were delicious!

The hash topped with an egg.

I haven't eaten corned beef hash in many years. I saw a large (24 oz.) can, greatly reduced. I bought it with the intention of making patties of some sort and then frying and freezing most of them.Binder For Corned Beef Hash - bowl of corned beef hash


The hash was so crumbly, I couldn't form patties. I added a beaten egg. Still too crumbly. Another egg, still too crumbly.

I won't add more egg because if I do, the patties will taste eggy. What else can I use for a binder? I won't waste this hash and I don't want to just stir it in a pan til the eggs cook.
