  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 3/4 cup yellow onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup poblano or green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 pounds baking potatoes (like russets), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes, and parboiled
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves, freshly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Emeril's Original Essence
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 large eggs, divided
  • Cooking Directions

    Set a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook the bacon slowly rendering the fat by stirring occasionally until crispy, about 8 minutes.

    Remove the bacon from the pan using a slotted spoon, and add the onions and poblano pepper and saute, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter, the potatoes, sage, Essence, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

    Continue to cook the hash, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are warmed through, about 3 to 4 minutes.
