Ham and Potato Hash

Sunday breakfasts are a favorite activity around here. More like a brunch, they are usually somewhat more elaborate and filling that what we eat for breakfast during the week. Ham and potato hash is a perfect side dish for fried eggs; easy to cook, and a great way to use up leftover ham.

  • Prep: 10 minutes
  • Cook: 40 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup finely diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crumbled thyme

Method

1 Cut the potatoes in half, cook in a saucepan of simmering water until not quite done and still firm, about 10 minutes. Rinse in cold water to stop cooking. Drain. Dice to 1/2-inch thick pieces. Set aside.

2 Melt butter in a large cast-iron* skillet over medium low to medium heat. Add onion, cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the chopped bell pepper, cook another 2 minutes.

3 Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Cook hash until well browned, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

*Best not to use a stick-free pan or the hash won't brown very well.
