Farmer's Breakfast Skillet
Farmer's Breakfast Skillet - diced potatoes, fresh veggies, ham, and bacon, all pan-fried to crispy golden perfection, and topped with melty cheese and eggs
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4 -6
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1/2 green or red bell pepper finely chopped
- 4-6 medium potatoes cubed
- 1 cup diced ham
- 1/2 pound bacon cooked and crumbled
- salt & pepper to taste
- a pinch of ground thyme
Boil your potatoes in a large pot of water for 5-7. They should be firm and not-quite-done. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and saute until softened, about 4 minutes.
Add the bell pepper and saute another 2 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients, including potatoes, and mix well. Cook hash until well browned, at least 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In order to firm up the hash a little more, I'll place in a medium baking dish and pop it in a 250° oven while I'm cooking up the rest of the meal.
Serve warm. Top with cheese and eggs, if desired.
