Potato Hash

When ever I have company come stay, I usually make this for them. It goes together quick and I usually have all the ingredients in my kitchen.

I've started making it even if I don't have a guest. It's sorta become my Sunday ritual, just like Sunday Morning. I love that show!! I snuggle up in my recliner with a bowl of my potato hash with two over easy eggs on top, turn on Sunday Morning and all is good in my world.


Notes:  I like red potatoes, but you can use what ever kind you like.
I also added a sweet potato to this recipe, but if you don't like sweet potatoes, you can leave it out.
You can use what ever kind of onion you like. I usually use a sweet onion, but I had a red onion on hand and used that. (why do they call them red when they are almost purple?)
I always use sweet corn, but you can substitute any vegetable you want. One of these days I'm going to buy some fresh asparagus and give this a try!!
You can also eat your eggs anyway you like. I happen to like mine over easy!!!

5 -6 medium sized potatoes
1 sweet potato (optional)
1/2 medium onion
1/2 lb of bacon
1 cup sweet corn
Salt & Pepper to taste

Cut the bacon up into bite size pieces. Fry them up in the frying pan on medium heat until they are cooked. Take bacon out of grease and put on paper towel to soak up grease. Pour bacon grease in dish to use later.

Chop up onion and put in pan that you cooked bacon in until onions are translucent. Take onions out of pan and drain on paper towel.

Add some of the reserved bacon grease to the pan. Add the sweet corn to the pan and stir until cooked. Take corn out of pan and drain on paper towel.

Chop up potatoes into bite size pieces. Add more bacon grease to pan and put potatoes in pan. Salt and pepper potatoes. Stir around a bit.

Cover potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Check potatoes with a fork to see if they are tender. If not, stir potatoes around a bit and then cover again in 5 minute increments until done.

Add other cooked ingredients to pan and heat all up together. Separate into bowls. Cook eggs how you like them and place on top of potatoes.
