  • 2 tablespoons salted butter or margarine
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup leftover baked ham, chopped*
  • 2 slices Deli yellow American cheese

Step 1

Melt butter in 7 - 8-inch diameter skillet over medium heat.

Add potatoes and a sprinkling of salt and pepper on top, then cook undisturbed for 8 minutes, or until golden brown on bottom side; then flip potatoes over and cook for another 6 to 7 minutes to brown the other side. (I used an egg turner to turn over in sections.)

Top potatoes with ham pieces, then with cheese slices. Cover the skillet and continue cooking for another minute or two just to warm ham and slightly melt the cheese. Serve immediately with eggs and biscuits.

* I used meat from smoked ham shanks that I had previously boiled. Also, my skillet was a bit larger than needed.
