  • 6 oz. bacon about 5-6 slices, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small sweet onion finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 lb. russet potatoes cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. oregano dried
  • ⅛-¼ tsp. cayenne pepper depending on desired spice level
  • 1 tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 5 eggs
  • Cilantro chopped, optional


  1. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-low heat add cut bacon. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until fully cooked. Remove bacon pieces from the skillet and place on a paper-towel lined plate to let drain.
  2. Measure out bacon grease and add back in 3 tablespoons of it. If bacon did not put off that much grease, substitute the difference with butter or oil.  Add onion and bell pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Add garlic and continue sautéing for another 1-2 minutes.

  3. Push all of the vegetables to the side of the skillet and add cubed potatoes along with paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix potatoes and seasonings until well combined.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Begin mixing in the onions and peppers within the last 2-3 minutes.
  5. Make 5 wells in the center of the potatoes about 1-2 inches wide. Crack one egg in each well.
  6. Cover the skillet with a lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 6-8 minutes. (Closer to 6 for over-easy eggs and closer to 8 minutes for over-hard eggs.)
  7. When eggs are almost cooked to your liking, remove lid and sprinkle bacon bits on to warm them back up.
  8. Serve potato hash and eggs with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and enjoy!
