Bacon Apple Hash

It’s pretty rare I have anything more than a bowl of cereal for breakfast, so when I do, it better be something good! (Even if we didn’t get around to eating this until lunch. Still…) This hash pretty much has it all – sweet, bit salty, crunchy… Everything you need! It also makes a bunch more than you’d expect out of those ingredients – I had considered doubling it, but was glad I didn’t as it’s a bunch already.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Russet potatoes, diced
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice mixed with roughly 1 cup water
  • 4 ounces bacon, cubed (I rounded up)
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper, to taste

After chopping the apples, place them in the lemon water to prevent browning, and set aside.

Thanks for doing the cutting, mom!

It’s easiest to chop the bacon by just cutting it with scissors over the pan. Cook in a skillet over medium low heat until well browned. Remove the bacon, but leave a tablespoon or so of bacon grease in the pan.

Add the potatoes to the hot pan and turn the heat up to medium high. Cook until they start getting nicely browned, 8-10 minutes.

Add the apples (drain them first!) and bacon, plus a few shakes/cranks of salt and pepper. Stir it all together, and cook until it’s all equally hot, which should happen quite quickly.

Drizzle in the honey and stir together, then remove from the heat.

Farmers’ market is where you get the good stuff!

And you’re done! Easy enough! And quite tasty too.
