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.

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.

You can add bread crumbs, panko crumbs, or oats.

I have added left-over mashed potatoes or even flake "instant" potatoes but it takes a pretty firm hand to make a patty of this type hash. I believe some brands are more difficult than others to form patties but I'm not sure which brand I had problems with.


Have you considered just placing your hash into serving size portions and freezing them for a later date? Maybe by then you will have less volume to deal with and can experiment with different solutions/recipes?
I have made delicious stuffed green peppers with hash and cooked rice as well as mixing a little pineapple with just pan frying the hash and serve as a main dish or serve with eggs on top - usually everyone loves it.
