If you’re like us, then you enjoy breakfast any time of day. Whether you’re looking to mix up your morning meal ritual or simply seeking a delectable, hearty dish at any hour, look no further than our bacon breakfast hash recipe.
Topped with fried eggs, or wrapped up tight with scrambled eggs in a flour tortilla, this breakfast hash recipe is as diverse as it is tasty. We happened to have bacon in the fridge, but savory sausage or ham serve as fine alternatives to crispy bacon. And we dare say—if you’re trying to get to someone’s heart through his belly, cook those taters in bacon grease!
Peeling the potatoes is optional, or if you’re really short on time, you can always buy potatoes from the freezer section and skip right to adding the meat and veggies to suit your family. Serve immediately and don’t forget your favorite condiments like ketchup, hot sauce or fresh salsa!
