Baked Corned Beef Hash

Serves 4

A tasty dish when I am feeling like a lazy cook...

4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
Vegetable oil
1 Onion, peeled and diced
1 Red Pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 Tin of Corned Beef, chopped
Horseradish sauce/cream
A splash of Worcester Sauce or Mustard, depends what you fancy
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste
chopped fresh flat leaf Parsley to garnish

1] Boil the potatoes in a pot of lightly salted water for about 5 minutes. Drain well and allow to dry slightly.
2] Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the Onion and Peppers. Cook for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.
3] Tip in the dried Potatoes. Cook and stir for about 10 minutes until they start to turn golden brown.
4] Stir through the corned beef. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Fold the Horseradish into the hash.
5] Preheat  the oven to 200*C/ 400*F/ gas mark 6.
6] Tip the hash into a lightly buttered casserole dish. Place into the oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, until bubbling and beginning to brown.

To serve you can top it with grated cheese or a poached/fried egg.
