In a heavy skillet, cook bacon until crisp; crumble; set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat. Meanwhile, in a large pot on high heat, boil potatoes, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes. Potatoes should still be a little firm and not mushy. Let sit for 10 minutes, drain, and cool down with cold tap water. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
In the same skillet, reheat the bacon fat with the tablespoon of butter between medium-medium low heat. Saute the diced shallot for 5 minutes until soft, then add the green pepper and mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next, add the thyme, salt, pepper and potatoes. Stir once and continue to cook the hash stirring occasionally for about 10-15 more minutes or until potatoes are cooked all the way through. Lastly, add crumbled bacon pieces; toss and serve with two fried eggs on the top. Makes 4 servings.
