Saturday Morning Skillet Potatoes a.k.a. “The Hash”

An old friend and I used to get together to make brunch.  My dish was always “the hash”.  I would try and push it further every time by adding more chilies and meats until it was almost unrecognizable.  I’ve since realized I don’t want to have a coronary and have toned it down quite a bit.  This is a much “healthier” version of the hash I used to make, but it’s still fantastic.  I take my time making this so expect 30-40 minutes of cooking time.  This can be reduced by pre-cooking the potatoes (boiling or nuking), but I prefer to do it this way.

4 Medium or 2 Large Potatoes

1/2 Green Bell Pepper, diced

1 Medium Onion, chopped

1 Jalapeño, minced

Vegetable Oil

1 Tsp Cajun Seasoning (Slap Ya Mama is my favorite)

Shredded Cheese

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat (a few Tbsp, less for healthier, more for crispier).  Add potatoes and cook stirring/turning occasionally for 15-20 minutes.  When the potatoes start to turn golden brown add the onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño.  Continue to cook for another 10-15 minutes until the “hash” starts to char.  Add the Cajun seasoning and stir for another minute.  Top with shredded cheese and enjoy!

For a less healthy but way tastier version, dice half a package of bacon, fry until crispy, remove from pan and use the bacon fat in place of the vegetable oil to start this recipe.  Add the bacon back during the last few minutes of cooking.  Also, habaneros give this quite a “get out of bed and get moving” kick.
