Sausage, Bacon and Red Pepper Hash-Browns

Time: 1 hour (approx)
Effort: Easy
Serves: 8

1 large onion, diced
1 large red pepper, diced
3 tbsps olive oil
4 spicy Italian sausages - casing removed
8 strips of pre-cooked bacon, cut into pieces
8 potatoes: 3 each of Russet and Yukon Gold and 2 sweet potatoes, diced 
Crushed black pepper to taste

Heat 2 tbsps olive oil in a large deep skillet until very hot. Saute the onions and peppers. Add the bacon pieces and saute until browned, then add the sausage meat and continue to saute, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon or spatula. Remove from the pan and set aside. Heat the rest of the olive oil and add the diced potatoes. Saute until browned and well cooked, then add in the bacon-sausage mixture and saute again, adding black pepper to taste. Serve immediately or keep warm in the oven, covered with foil until needed.
