Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 6 slices bacon
- 6 to 8 cooked potatoes, peeled and diced into uniform pieces
- 1 medium onion, diced into uniform pieces (about 1 cup)
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 to 2 cups leftover meat (lamb, steak, ham, or pork), diced into uniform pieces
- 5 to 6 eggs
Finely dice bacon and fry over medium heat in large pan until crisp (cast iron works well for this). Remove cooked bacon from pan and drain off all but 4 Tbsp. bacon grease. Add diced potatoes to pan and stir-fry in bacon fat until browned and crisp; remove from pan. Melt butter in pan; add chopped onions and sauté just until limp. Add chopped meat and brown, about five minutes. Reduce heat to low; return bacon and potatoes to pan, mixing all ingredients together and heating until warm.
In separate pan, fry the eggs "sunny-side up." Transfer the hash to individual plates and crown with a fried egg on top of each serving.
Yield: 5 to 6 servings of Swedish hash.
