Breakfast is an important meal of the day. We all know it but do we really make sure we eat our breakfast? I make sure my family eat their breakfast every day, especially on the weekends when I have more time to make something for them.
Corned beef is not as popular here compared to the Western palates. However, I enjoy my treat of corned beef once in a while. I have always had corned beef for breakfast while studying in US. There’s something familiarly comforting about the flavours of corned beef with eggs and potatoes that brings me back to memories of my college days.
Corned beef is relatively salty and to balance up the salty notes, I thought why not add my favorite chili sauce to it? So one weekend, I made a Breakfast Corned Beef Sandwich with LINGHAM’s Chili Sauce for my boys and turns out, they enjoyed it very much. The sweetness and light spiciness of LINGHAM’s chili sauce worked so well with the salty corned beef and made it more moreish. Since corned beef is almost always enjoyed with potatoes and eggs, I added crispy hash browns for extra crunch and fried egg for extra yumminess.
The sandwich is rich so I added pickles to give some tang to the sandwich and made it easier to enjoy as well. If you don’t like pickles, add some freshness to the sandwich with crisp greens or fresh tomato slices or cucumber to balance the richness of the corned beef with fried egg and hash browns.
Last but not least, I added more LINGHAM’s Chili Sauce to my sandwich for extra oomph!
