Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 0.5 oz fresh thyme
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 2 red beets
  • 2 russet potatoes, each about 12 oz
  • 1 yellow onions

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 8 slice thick-cut bacon

Oil and Spices

  • 0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  • 3 tbsp champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar


  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 8 large eggs (optional)

Special Equipment

  • 12" cast-iron skillet


  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon, coarsely chopped
  • ½ yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 red beets, about 1 pound total, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 russet potatoes, about 1½ pounds total, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 8 large eggs, scrambled or fried (optional)


  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  2. Spread the bacon out in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet and fry over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until crisp, 15 to 17 minutes, stirring the bacon pieces occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Carefully remove about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease from the skillet and discard.

  3. Combine the onion, beets, salt, pepper, and thyme in the skillet and cook over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, for 10 minutes, stirring once. Add the garlic and potatoes and cook, with the lid closed, until the beets and potatoes are tender and there are browned bits sticking to the skillet, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet occasionally.

  4. Stir in the vinegar and all but ¼ cup of the bacon pieces. Top the hash with the cheese and the remaining ¼ cup of bacon. Serve immediately with scrambled or fried eggs, if desired.

Bacon grease

Recheck step #2. Carefully remove about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease from the skillet and discard.
Should it be remove all but 2 tablespoons?

Where's the Grease Going ?

As reviewed before... Great receipe but two things:

1) You state to remove "two tablespoons of grease and discard", do you discard the two tablespoons or the remaining grease.
2) Then what do you do with it ? I didn't see any step to add the grease to anything, in which ever quantity.

I guess it was just a lesson in futility, remove two tablespoons full and throw it all away... lol.

Thanks for all of the great recipes,

p.s. Just a thought, it would be nice to be able to either print these recipes or save them to my own computer for quick reference and for future use. There should be no need to go to the Weber Site and attempt to look up the recipe or find out it is gone.
