White Bean Hash

29 Aug

I woke up this morning and had a cup of tea as I read my google reader.  And I saw this on my screen

excuse my bookmarks >.<

A post from How Sweet It Is featuring 5 delicious looking breakfast recipes! They all looked so appetizing, but the one that had me salivating at the mouth was the White Bean Hash (second pic on the above screenshot). I had to have it! And have it I did!

Ingredients- 4 slices of bacon or 1/2 cup chopped pancetta, 2 leeks, trimmed, sliced and cleaned, 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed, 2-3 eggs (or however many you want)

1.Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add the bacon or pancetta and cook until browned.

I hate cooking bacon on a stovetop so I baked 7 (yes, I added 2 to my recipe and 1 to eat while I cooked. I love bacon!) strips in the oven on 350 for about 15 minutes.

leeks and bacon before it was sent to the oven.


2.Remove the bacon, leaving the grease in the pan and drain on a paper towel. Add the sliced, cleaned leeks (make sure they are dry) to the bacon grease and saute until caramelized, about 6-8 minutes. 

I poured the bacon grease from the baking pan into my skillet. I’ve never cooked anything in “meat grease” before! I yoinked a piece of leek and it was so good. You can definitely taste the seasoning from the bacon.


3.Add beans and bacon back into the skillet. Stir for about a minute. At this point you can either fry some eggs in a separate skillet, or push the hash to the sides and fry the eggs in the middle. Make sure the beans, leeks and bacon are thoroughly mixed.




4. Serve with eggs. Tada!


It was so good. SO good I can hardly believe I made it. The recipe is for 2-3 people. I had a helping, my sister had a helping and there’s still enough for 2 more plates. Guess I’ll be having it for dinner too :) Thanks for the recipe, How Sweet It Is!
