It was Father’s Day this past weekend and, if your dad is anything like mine, you grilled up a ton of red meat for him to chow down on. Because you overdid it – because your dad is amazing – there will be leftover steak. I’ve always been intrigued as to what to do with it, besides making a wonderful steak sandwich. Here I’m going to show you how you could eat this at any meal during the day, even breakfast! Hash is essentially a mix of whatever is in your fridge, or at least that’s the way I think of it. Top it with a couple fried eggs and you’ve got a perfectly balanced meal.


5 strips Maple Leaf Bacon

1 Leftover Steak (hopefully cooked medium rare

3 Mini Bell Peppers

1 Small Onion

¼ cup Mushroom (I used Chantrelles)

½ lb Red Potatoes

¼ cup Shredded Cheese

2 Eggs

Salt and Pepper


1. Dice up your peppers and onions then chop up your steak into about 1” cubes. This doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s hash… does it sound fancy? Nope. So you don’t have to make it fancy.

2. Fry up your bacon. Cut it up into pieces about the same size as your steak and other stuff!

3. Once the bacon is crispy, toss in your onions and peppers. Fry these until they’re fragrant and quite soft.

4. Throw in those beautiful mushrooms. I love chanterelles, but it’s a shame I don’t get to cook with them too much.

5. Add in your potatoes. I boiled them for about 10 minutes before adding them into the pan to soften them up. Cutting them into disks will give them lots of surface area to brown and get crispy. Let them do that!

6. Toss in your steak just to heat it through. It’s already cooked perfectly (I hope) so just heat it through. Don’t forget to season with salt and pepper!

7. Fry up a couple eggs your favourite way. I’m gonna do sunny side up, here.

8. Plate your hash and top with some shredded cheese.

9. Put your cooked eggs right on top of that cheese. WAIT a couple minutes to let that cheese melt then dig right in. Such a rustic dish that is unfathomably delicious.
