Last weekend was my wife and my anniversary and I really wanted to come up with something special. So, whats more special than bacon? Ok, so we eat bacon pretty much every day so its not THAT special but still, bacon hash is pretty awesome. I was hoping that they would fry into hard patties but they pretty much fell apart after flipping. However, they were still melt in your mouth good and I think they may become our new breakfast staple.
First I prepped and cooked all of the vegetables. I knew I wanted vegetables in my hash but I didn’t want to cook them at the same time since the cooking times would vary too much. I like to cut my pepper into thin strips as shown so they get stringy when fried.
Start by frying the various vegetables. Since the onions were not fresh, I fried the green peppers for a bit and then added the rest of the vegetables.
Then I threw them the food processor from my immersion blender and let ‘er rip!
I tried to form them into patties using egg rings. It did help to cook them evenly on the bottom.
And there you have it, bacon hash! In case you’re wondering, I used the egg rings as a mold to place the hash on the plate so it lined up well with the eggs.
