This easy breakfast hash is as beautiful as it is delicious. Serve for brunch topped with a Niman Ranch egg cooked to your liking or as a side dish with Niman Ranch pork chops for dinner.


  • 3/4 pound sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 3/4 pound purple potatoes, cubed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 packages (12 slices) Niman Ranch Uncured Canadian Bacon, diced
  • 2 firm apples, cored and cubed
  • 1-2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the cubed potatoes with 2 tablespoons of oil and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper, and then roast until just barely soft, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
  5. Sauté the onion for 1 minute, then add the bacon and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes more.
  6. Add the apples, thyme and cooked potatoes to the skillet and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
  7. Remove from the heat and garnish with extra thyme if desired. Serve warm.

*The potatoes and apples in this dish can be peeled if desired or cooked with the skin on. If purple potatoes aren’t available, substitute white or red new potatoes.
