Bacon Breakfast Hash – Lower-Calorie, Gluten-Free

This bacon breakfast hash makes a great breakfast and will keep you full for hours. A perfect weekend breakfast ready in under 30 minutes.


I love the simplicity of a breakfast hash and the versatility of it. This recipe is made with potatoes, red peppers, onions, and bacon. However, this is a dish that is perfect for using up any leftover vegetables on hand. The peppers are easily interchangeable, as well as the type of meat used. Bacon happens to be my favorite breakfast meat so thatโ€™s what I like to use. This is an easy breakfast too. Some chopping of vegetables and for the most part everything cooks together until tender. You can choose to top the hash as well with shredded cheese and a fried egg. It really adds to the dish and is super hearty to keep you full for a while.

Not too long ago I went out with a friend to breakfast. When I saw the restaurant had a breakfast hash on the menu I ordered it. Mainly because I knew itโ€™d be delicious and filling. What I noticed after I ordered was how high in calories the dish was. It was pushing 1000 calories for the one dish. I realized, after the dish came out, how incredibly greasy it was. My vegetables were practically swimming in grease. This is one of my favorite reason to cook at home. I can control the amount of every ingredient that goes into my food.


To make this hash, start by cooking the bacon. After the bacon is fully cooked, chop it up and set it aside. Then, get the potatoes, onion and pepper chopped up. After that, heat some olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the the oil is heated, add the potatoes, onions and peppers and cook until everything is tender. Once everything is tender, add the bacon in and mix together well. Then, divide the hash up between four bowls and top with a couple tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese and a fried egg.

What can I add to my breakfast hash?

Breakfast hash bowls can be made with a variety of meats and vegetables. Carnitas, brisket, roast chicken, turkey and sausage are great meats to use for a hash. Any kind of potato, sweet potato, or yam will work too. Bell peppers, carrots, spinach, mushrooms and kale make great hash vegetables.
