Smoky Bacon Potato Hash

Learn how to make a breakfast favorite in our house: smoky bacon potato hash!

How often do you make brunch at home?

I used to go all out on the weekends. I’m talking egg frittata, pancakes, homemade jam, loaded breakfast fries…sometimes all on the same day 😂 So much fun to do, but so much cleanup.

These days, I prefer dishes that only require 1 pan and less than 30 minutes, and this Smoky Bacon Potato Hash is a favorite!

Servings: 4


  • Cast iron or other oven-safe pan
  • Slotted spoon


  • 4-5 slices bacon
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • ½ bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups 2 cups Baby Dutch or Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • green onion, parsley, and almond ricotta (for garnish)


  • Preheat oven to 375℉.
  • Place diced bacon in a cast iron or other oven-safe pan over medium heat on the stove. Cook, stirring occasionally, until color darkens but not fully done.
  • Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a bowl, and leave the grease. Set bacon aside for later.
  • Add onion, bell pepper and potatoes to the pan of bacon grease. If you need more oil, add some olive or avocado oil.
  • Sauté for 7-10 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender, stirring enough so your potatoes don't stick to the bottom of the pan. If you're in a rush, you can add a tiny bit of water and put a lid on for a few minutes.
  • Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add spices and sauté for 1 more minute. Add bacon back to the pan and stir to combine.
  • Make wells for your eggs in the potatoes. Crack your eggs, then transfer pan to the oven.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how done you like your eggs. Serve!
