Skillet Ham Hash

Skillet Ham Hash

A perfect breakfast or brunch meal, this hash is easy to make and is a great use of leftover ham.

 

Ingredients

  • 4 Servings
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 large green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 large red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup lower-sodium, low-fat, diced ham (about 4 ounces), all visible fat discarded
  • 3 cups frozen, fat-free southern-style diced hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/2 tsp. salt-free Cajun or Creole seasoning blend
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped, fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

 

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the bell peppers and onion for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft and the bell pepper is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the ham. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the hash browns and seasoning blend. Cook without stirring for 4 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown. Stir (the golden-brown pieces will be redistributed). Cook without stirring for 4 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown and the mixture is heated through.
  3. Stir in the parsley, salt, and pepper.
