Aunt Amy’s Hash Browns with Bacon

This is a breakfast skillet favorite in my house. When my nephew visits, he always asks me to make them.


  • 3-4 strips of bacon
  • 1/2 yellow or red onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 med white rose potatoes
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika, preferably smoked paprika
  • salt
  • pepper

Special Tools


Using a mandolin, cut potatoes into small strips. If you don’t have a mandolin, a food processor will work too.

Finely chop your onion and cut the bell pepper into 1/4″ pieces.

Slice the strips of bacon into 1″ pieces.


Heat your skillet and then drop in the bacon pieces. Let them cook for a couple of minutes and then add in the onions, garlic and bell peppers. Sauteé for a minute or two and then add in the potatoes. Add at least a tablespoon of salt. Saute&eacute for another minute or two, stirring frequently.

Add fresh ground pepper, basil and paprika. Then pour in the apple juice and cover.

Simmer over medium heat until the liquid is absorbed.

Uncover and saute&acute, stirring frequently, until the edges of the potatoes are slightly crispy.

Serve with a dollop of fresh salsa.
