  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 1 (23 oz) package Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet cubed into large bite sized pieces
  • 1 (28 oz) bag potatoes o’brien (diced hash browns with peppers and onion), keep frozen
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper plus more to taste
  • 1 (8 oz) block cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 large eggs cooked your favorite way and seasoned with salt and pepper (sunny side up is pictured)


  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a very large non-stick skillet over medium high heat.

  • Add in fresh pork and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring every 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and stir to melt.
  • Arrange pork in an even single layer. 
Add in frozen potatoes o’brien (you might need to break them up a bit if they’re clumped together) and arrange in an even layer.
  • Sprinkle on garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring every 3-5 minutes to prevent burning but encourage browning, until the potatoes are tender and golden brown.
  • Add in the cheese and stir until melted.
  • Taste and re-season, if necessary.
  • Serve with eggs, toast, fruit, etc.
