Ingredients

  • 5 slices bacon thick-cut
  • 1 7 ounce boneless ham steak cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper seeded and diced (1/2-inch)
  • 1 20-oz bag refrigerated hash brown potatoes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Cook bacon in large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat, turning once, until crisp and browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer bacon to paper towels to cool. Pour fat from skillet into small bowl. You should have 5 tablespoons; add vegetable oil, if needed.
Return 3 tablespoons bacon fat to skillet over medium heat. Add ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add onion and red pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden, about 7 minutes. Add hash browns and cook until underside is mostly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons bacon fat over potatoes. Using metal spatula, turn hash browns over in sections. Continue cooking until other side is mostly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until hash is completely golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
If desired, top each serving with a fried or poached egg.
