Pea & Bacon Potato Hash

Pea & Bacon Potato Hash

Last year I was on a pizza kick. This year, I'm all about making really quick hashes.

I think it started when I had leftover roasted potatoes in one of my weekly Meal Preps.

What I like about hashes is that they're a great way to clean out your fridge. I had a cup of fresh peas and 4 strips of bacon to use up, so I threw this hash together before I left for my trip. I also added some pesto and crumbled goat cheese for good measure.

Oh yeah and red pepper flakes because I love spice. Talk about Easy Gourmet! Hopefully this makes you consider having cooked potatoes in your fridge every week. You're seriously a few minutes away from an incredible dinner...breakfast or lunch.

And we're off!

First we cook the bacon. Cast Iron Skillets are necessary for good hashes. I obsessively season mine.

Bacon fried.

Let's reserve some of that fat for the potatoes. We don't need this big much fat though.

Bacon goes on a paper towel off to the side.

Cut up the potatoes. I like when some of the skin hangs off because I know it's gonna get crisped up.

And we cook. I add just a little bit of olive oil to help the crisping.

The key is to stir them only a few times. We want crispy bits.

Add in the peas and onions. We do this towards the end because we are looking for the peas to still be tender and the onions to be translucent.

After a few minutes we add the bacon back in.

Make two wells for eggs. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil in there.

Eggs go in.

COOKED!  Waiting for toppings.

Pesto & goat cheese topping!

A little extra red pepper flakes for me.
