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!

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Total Time: 35 min

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
⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
4 eggs
green onion, parsley, and almond ricotta (for garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a bowl, and leave the grease. Set bacon aside for later.
  4. Add onion, bell pepper and potatoes to the pan of bacon grease. If you need more oil, add some olive or avocado oil.
  5. 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.
  6. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add spices and sauté for 1 more minute.
  7. Add bacon back to the pan and stir to combine.
  8. 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!
