Directions

Set a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook the bacon slowly rendering the fat by stirring occasionally until crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan using a slotted spoon, and add the onions and poblano pepper and saute, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter, the potatoes, sage, Essence, and 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Continue to cook the hash, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are warmed through, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Set 2 (8-inch) nonstick skillets over medium-high heat, or 1 (10-inch) skillet, and add 1 tablespoon butter to each 8-inch skillet or 2 tablespoons to the 10-inch skillet When the butter is foamy, carefully crack 2 eggs into each skillet (or 4 into the 10-inch skillet), and season lightly with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the whites are firm, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining eggs and serve the eggs over the hash browns.
Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Yield: 2/3 cup

    Emeril never seems to dissappoint me, and I guess he never will, because this dish is awesome. The potatoes has a wonderful flavor, and the whole combination just meshes well together.
