List of Ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

- ¼ cup red pepper, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup pulled pork
- 5 large potatoes, boiled and then diced into cubes (peeling optional)
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 3 large eggs
- Scallions and jalapeno for garnish (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat and add the vegetable oil.
- Add the diced red onion and peppers to the skillet and cook for about 3-5 minutes until they start to soften.
- Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
- Stir in the pulled pork and make sure everything is fully incorporated.
- Add the paprika, kosher salt, and pepper to the skillet and stir to combine.
- Add the boiled and diced potatoes to the skillet and stir. Try to make sure that some potatoes are touching the bottom of the pan to allow them to crisp up.
- Let the potatoes crisp for at least 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them.
- Create 3 wells in the hash using a soup ladle or the back of a spoon, and then sprinkle half of the cheddar cheese (½ cup) over the hash.
- Crack the 3 large eggs into the wells and season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
- Carefully transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for up to 10 minutes. At 5 minutes, the egg whites should be cooked, but the yolks will be runny. At 10 minutes, the yolks will be slightly runny. Adjust the baking time to your preference.
