The Yankee Chef: Simple skillet winter hash to enjoy with your coffee


Serve simple skillet winter hash for breakfast

Ingredients: 3 slices of bacon, diced; 1 tsp minced garlic in oil; 1/2 small onion, chopped; 1 small red or green bell pepper, seeded and chopped; 1 large, firm apple; 2 pounds potatoes, cooked and diced; 1/2 tsp each black pepper and red pepper flakes; 3/4 cup beef or vegetable broth; shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions: In a large skillet, over medium heat, add bacon and garlic. Stir to combine and cook until bacon is as done as you like. Add onion and bell pepper, continuing to cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Peel, core and dice apple. Add apple to skillet along with potatoes and both spices. Stir to combine and cook until starting to brown well on bottom, do not stir. Flip hash over and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned on bottom. Reduce heat to low, pour in broth, top with cheese, cover tightly and let cook 2 more minutes, or until cheese has melted and broth has been absorbed. Serve immediately.
