What is better than a potato!? If you have a response for that let me stop you right there with two words, french.fries.
Potato, poTAto.. spuds, all in the same! You can mash em, fry em, bake em, saute em…. the possibilities are endless! They are a delicious (not to mention inexpensive and filling) way to bring together a meal for anytime of the day…
Today I’m presenting to you my Anytime Hash! This recipe is a traffic stopper, and not just because the ingredients are red, yellow and green 😉
Casey’s Anytime Potato Hash –
1 24oz pack of new potatoes, halved (quartered if on the larger side)
1 tablespoon of olive oil, + 1 additional teaspoon
4 oz of Canadian bacon, diced
1/2 small red onion (about 1/2 cup), small dice
1 medium yellow pepper, diced
1/2 cup of broccoli florets (the tops, cut away from all long stems)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon of sherry vinegar
1/8 teaspoon of paprika
salt & pepper to taste
1. Place your potatoes in cold salted water (if you can only find large-sized potatoes that is fine! Just weigh out 24oz of them at the store and cut into 1/2 inch pieces) Turn heat on high and bring to a boil. Once the pot comes to a boil, it should be about 8 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Remember! We don’t want them overcooked so keep an eye on them 😉
2. Meanwhile, in a large saute, add the tablespoon of oil and heat it up on medium heat. Add the Canadian bacon in and mix to coat, let that crisp up nice (nothing worse than soggy bacon!) but remember you will be cooking other items as well so only cook the bacon until it starts browning, about 6 minutes.
3. Now add in the red onion, yellow pepper, and green broccoli (hence my traffic stopping joke before.. see now you think I’m funny, right?! haha) Mix to combine and let that cook until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the minced garlic and stir until fragrant.
4. Drain the potatoes, but do no rinse them! They have amazing natural starch on them that will hold our hash together nicely. Add the potatoes to your saute pan, add in the vinegar and paprika, and toss to combine. Allow the vinegar to cook off, about two minutes, continue to stir it.. breaking up some potatoes to create a nice mix of crushed and whole potatoes! (It’s all about texture and visuals!)
5. Remove from the heat and stir in the teaspoon of olive oil to give it a nice shine and add another level of flavor. Salt and Pepper to taste, enjoy!
How yummy does this look!? Its packed with veggies and the kids wont even care because it’s POTATOES!
Gotta love it 🙂
This would be amazing in the morning, have a nice sunny side up eggs over the top.. The potato would catch the yolks, delish! Or you can have it as a side for your burgers for dinner.. Even eat it as a cold salad for lunch with some spinach!
