I love the simplicity of a breakfast hash and the versatility of it. This easy bacon breakfast hash 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 that’s what I like to use.

You can choose to top the hash with shredded cheese and a fried egg. It really adds to the dish and is super hearty to keep you full for a while.
