Prep Time:
  • Preparation: 15 minutes
  • Cooking: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices Kunekune bacon, chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Prep Time:

  • Preparation: 15 minutes
  • Cooking: 30 minutes

Instructions:

  1. Cook the Bacon: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped Kunekune bacon until it is crispy and browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, leaving the bacon fat in the skillet.

  2. Cook the Vegetables: Add the diced onion and bell peppers to the skillet with the bacon fat. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Cook the Potatoes: Add the diced potatoes to the skillet with the vegetables. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Stir well to combine. Cook the potatoes, stirring occasionally, until they are golden brown and tender, about 15-20 minutes.

  4. Add the Bacon: Return the cooked Kunekune bacon to the skillet, stirring it into the potato mixture. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.

  5. Cook the Eggs: Make six small wells in the potato mixture and crack an egg into each well. Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and cook until the eggs are set to your desired level of doneness, about 5-7 minutes.

  6. Add the Cheese: Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the skillet. Cover the skillet again and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

  7. Garnish and Serve: Remove the skillet from the heat and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve the Kunekune bacon and egg breakfast skillet hot, straight from the skillet.
