Corned beef hash is actually one of my favorite go-to leftovers. Love the stuff. I've used turnips and they work great!

With the first option, the other half will probably never get used since I only eat corned beef once a year. With the second option, unless I can come up with a creative use for leftovers, I know that I'll be sick of it after about three days.

I have to go to a function on Sunday where it's potluck and I'm signed up to bring an appetizer dish. I was thinking of bringing individual quiches, and possibly incorporating some of the leftover meat.

This also sounds pretty good:

If anyone has other ideas, I'm open to suggestions.
How about individual Reuben sandwiches made with party size rye bread. And keep in mind, corn beef love to shrink when you cook it in water. So you don't have as much as you think you do.

I had an idea today: Reuben-inspired roll-ups. Layer a slice of corned beef on a slice of Swiss cheese. Make (or buy) Russian dressing and add lightly crushed caraway seeds, for the rye bread flavor. Spread a little dressing on the cheese and roll it up into a cylinder. Secure with toothpicks.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Turns out I didn't have as much leftover as I thought I would. First, I thought it was 6 lbs, but looking at the package, it was only 4. Still sounds like a lot of meat, but it reduced in volume since quite a bit of the fat rendered off while cooking.

I had enough leftover to make the Reuben Dip recipe I linked above, as well a good sized batch of corned beef hash that I'll enjoy with breakfast over the next few days.

I think the Reuben sandwich is my ultimate favorite. I have another corn beef in the freezer.

I'd take a nice 3 or 4 pound portion and slow cook it in a crockpot all day with some red potatoes, carrots, water, etc.. Yum.

Oh, that looks so good, Steve. And what perfect eggs.

We have some CB left over after our reubens. That'll go for hash over the weekend.
