This easy one pan breakfast hash is the perfect dish for special occasions and lazy weekend brunches alike. One pan means minimal mess, minimal clean up, and time to sit back and relax as it roasts away in the oven!
Ahhh Brunch, what a beautiful thing! This one pan hash combines all of my favorite things – lots of vegetables, perfectly cooked eggs, crispy potatoes, AND once the prep is done, it’s into the oven so you can relax and enjoy! Whether you’re enjoying this brunch in company (virtual still counts!) or in a quiet moment to yourself it’s so nice to be completely hands off while it cooks away!
I originally developed this recipe for my Dad- a tried and true bacon lover! Haha. While he still loves this version, we’ve tried out a few different combinations over the years and I have to say it is equally as delicious without bacon, or subbed for a plant based breakfast sausage or bacon!
For my Momma I like to finish it off with a sprinkle of fresh herbs like basil or parsley, some roasted corn or mushrooms, and maybe a sprinkle of feta cheese for good measure!
One of the greatest lessons my parents instilled in us is that the greatest gift you can give is your time. They would say this on repeat and I think of them saying this often. It is something that only you can give. The memories we have created over food are some of the best, and ones I will cherish forever.
I used to feel like I needed to make these elaborate meals for them to be special but I’ve learned over time that simple is best. And that doesn’t have to mean boring! One-pan meals are perfect for this. You can usually prep a lot of the meal ahead, and they make for super easy clean up!
The combination of the sheer ease (while still kind of looking fancy), deliciousness and easy ability to swap around the ingredients to suit pretty much anyone’s taste has nailed this recipe as a favorite in our house all year round. Special occasions and lazy weekend brunches alike it will not disappoint!
Side note – we sometimes make this hearty brunch for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Just don’t forget to make extras because it’s so good, you’ll probably want it for breakfast too!

This easy one pan breakfast hash is the perfect dish for special occasions and lazy weekend brunches alike. One pan means minimal mess, minimal clean up, and time to sit back and relax as it roasts away in the oven! Vegetarian and Vegan substitutions noted below!
- 6 slices of bacon, cut in half
- 6 eggs
- 2 large red skinned potatoes (about 1 ½ –2 cups)
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1/2 of a medium red onion, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 tsp avocado oil
- 6 stalks of asparagus, cut into thirds
- Salt and pepper to taste (approx ¼ tsp each to start with)
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (you may need 2 sheets but your veggies will really shrink up as you cook so it’s ok if it’s a bit crowded).
- Toss your potatoes, peppers, red onion and asparagus in 1 tsp of avocado oil (lightly oiled is fine as there will be more from the bacon as things cook) and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper.
- Place your bacon pieces down on the parchment lined sheet (s) and then add your potato and veggie mixture. Lay them out in a single layer.
- Place in the oven to cook for about 45 minutes, stirring halfway through
- When the potatoes are getting to be nice and golden brown, with 5 minutes left to cook, create 6 little divets in the pan. Crack an egg in each one and place back in the oven to cook for 5 minutes. If you like your yolks a little firmer, leave them in for another minute or two.
- Dish up and sprinkle with your green onion.
- Omit the bacon or sub for a plant-based breakfast sausage or bacon to make it vegetarian
- Swap the bacon as noted above AND use black beans instead of eggs to make it vegan
- See notes above for other vegetable options
- Swap potatoes for yams or sweet potato or do a mix of both for a sweet and savory twist!
