Steak Hash + Baked Apple Pancake = breakfast for dinner

Every once in awhile, I like to make breakfast for dinner. Since I have boys who have different tastes, I have to make something with meat for one and something sweet for the other. Tonight we tried this steak hash and baked apple pancake.

Hash without egg

Hash with egg over easy

Steak Hash:
Serves 6 ( 5 points +. Add 2 points for each egg)

  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1-1/4 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed small
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 c. roasted red pepper, chopped ( I used jarred)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 12-14 oz. sirloin rubbed with garlic powder, salt, pepper and chili powder
  • eggs ( optional)

Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Toss the potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees until golden and crisp ( 30-45 minutes, turning once)

Heat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Cook onions and tomatoes until tender. Stir in peppers.

Grill steak until desired doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Slice thin and then cube.

Stir together potatoes, onion mixture and steak. Heat through. Top with an egg made your favorite way if desired.

Baked Apple Pancake

Baked Apple Pancake: serves 6 ( 5 points +)


  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. egg beaters
  • 1 c. skim milk
  • 2 T. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Apple Mixture:

  • 1/2 c. sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 c. thinly sliced Granny Smith apple
  • 1 T. powdered sugar

To prepare batter, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add egg beaters, milk, butter and vanilla. Whisk together well. Let stand 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, spray a 10" cast iron skillet with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1/4 c. sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Place apples in an even spoke-like layer in the pan. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 c. sugar. Cook over medium heat until mixture bubbles. Slowly pour batter over apple mixture.

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and bake an additional 13 minutes or until center is set. ( I did not have to bake any longer than the first 15 minutes, so check your pancake then. Bake the additional 13 minutes only as needed)
Carefully loosen pancake with a spatula. Flip or slide onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into 6 wedges and serve immediately.
