Cut Yves Veggie Ham or Yves Veggie Bacon in half. Place both halves on top of each other and cut into thin strips. Set aside.

Combine potato and salt together in medium bowl and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small (6 in. / 15 cm) non-stick skillet, sauté onion, red peppers, green onions, salt, pepper, thyme and Yves Veggie Ham or Yves Veggie Bacon in 1/2 Tbsp. (7,5 mL) olive oil for 5 minutes or until tender. Set vegetable mixture aside.

Remove excess moisture from potatoes by tightly squeezing small handfuls of potatoes. (This step is important.)

Add remaining oil to skillet and press half of potatoes in skillet followed by vegetable mixture and top with remaining potatoes. Press down to form a round pancake.
