Corned beef hash revisited

Cooler weather means it's time again for easy corned beef hash. The ingredients: corned beef, Southern-style frozen hash browns, onion. Plus an egg or two.
Someone may try to tell you that corned beef doesn't need any embellishment. Don't listen.
Saute the onions in a little olive oil, then throw in the hash browns and meat. It might be a good idea to add a pat of butter at this point. Spread everything out in an even layer and let it sit.

Resist the urge to keep stirring; you want to get a nice crusty layer on the bottom. After a while, you can flip everything over with a spatula and brown the other side.

Watch your heat and don't get too distracted, or you'll end up on the darker side of done. Whoops!

Lastly, dish out the hash, fry up an egg in the pan and put it on top. Take it to work and make your cow-orkers jealous.
