Description

Comfort food personified, this hash is a winning breakfast or brunch dish, but makes for a good supper, too. It will be more satisfying if served with freshly baked biscuits (mix them quickly from a mix as a timesaver) and your favorite jam. A seasonal fruit salad would be perfect served alongside, or perhaps a green salad with apple slices, shredded Cheddar, and toasted walnuts. Try also topping the hash with a fried egg.

Ingredients

  • 5 slices bacon (thick-cut)
  • 7 ounces ham steak (boneless, cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper (seeded and diced, 1/2-inch)
  • 20 ounces hash brown potatoes (refrigerated)
  • salt
  • black pepper

Directions

  1. Cook bacon in large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat, turning once, until crisp and browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer bacon to paper towels to cool. Pour fat from skillet into small bowl. You should have 5 tablespoons; add vegetable oil, if needed.
  2. Return 3 tablespoons bacon fat to skillet over medium heat. Add ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add onion and red pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden, about 7 minutes. Add hash browns and cook until underside is mostly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons bacon fat over potatoes. Using metal spatula, turn hash browns over in sections. Continue cooking until other side is mostly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until hash is completely golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
  3. If desired, top each serving with a fried or poached egg.
