Forkful of vegetable hash breakfast skillet.

Whether I serve it for breakfast or dinner, a big skillet of vegetable hash is always a family favorite. Versatile, affordable, and ready in under 20 minutes, you really can’t go wrong with this meal-in-a-pan. My vegetable hash breakfast skillet uses onions and peppers, but you can use whatever you have on hand! This dish would work great with shallots, Anaheim peppers, cherry tomatoes, and more. Top with fresh herbs to really up the flavor!


  • Potatoes: Fingerling or creamer potatoes work great for this hash. Buttery flavor and creamy texture balance the peppers and onions.
  • Onion: I would use a yellow or white onion, as they caramelize to a sweet and mild flavor.
  • Red bell pepper: The sweetest of the bell peppers, the red pepper pairs well with the onion and potatoes.
  • Garlic powder: Quickly adds some strong garlic flavor to the veggies.
  • Seasoned salt: Typically a mixture of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, and onion powder. It’s an easy way to season and add flavor to dishes.
  • Cayenne: Adds a kick of heat and spice to the hash.
  • Eggs: An affordable, easy to cook protein. My kids like them sunny side up, but you could also do scrambled!
  • Olive oil: Heart healthy oil to help evenly cook and caramelize your veggies.

How to Make Vegetable Hash Breakfast Skillet

Cooked potatoes

Start your vegetable hash breakfast skillet by chopping and par-boiling your potatoes.

Cutting red bell pepper

While your potatoes boil, dice your red pepper and onion.

Sauteing onions

Then in a pan or cast-iron skillet, sauté the onion seasoned with a bit of salt and olive oil.

Adding red pepper to skillet

After the onion has cooked for a couple minutes, add the red pepper and continue to sauté.

Drizzling the hash with olive oil

Add a bit more olive oil as needed.

Adding potato to skillet

Then add your par-boiled potatoes.

Adding garlic powder to hash

Sprinkle with the garlic powder and seasoned salt.

Adding cayenne to hash

Finish with the cayenne, and stir to evenly coat and incorporate seasonings. Continue cooking until potatoes are browned and onions and peppers have caramelized.

Cooking an egg

In a separate pan, fry or scramble your eggs to your liking.

Serve with the egg placed on top of the hash, and garnish with fresh parsley or parmesan cheese. Enjoy your vegetable hash breakfast skillet!

Switch It Up!

  • Make it vegan. This dish is already mostly vegetables, just skip the egg topper to make this dish vegan!
  • Add more veggies. To up the vegetable intake, you could mix in some leafy greens like spinach or kale.
  • Add a Mexican flare. Sprinkle in some cumin, add some black beans, and top with avocado to put a Mexican spin on this hash.

        Made this today and it was a hit with my family. Thanks for sharing. I used assorted veggies and a bit of extra hamburger left over from last night. My go to spice this summer is a Greek blend. Lovely and perfect with eggs over easy and a chilled watermelon salad.

    I think your nutrition calculator has a glitch. There’s no way a dish made of veggies and 1 Tbsp olive oil has 501 calories per serving with 26g of fat. Even when you add the egg.

      You’re right!! So sorry about that – we’ve revised the calculator and have been in touch with our developer to fix the glitch. Thanks again!
