This cheesy potatoes and ham recipe makes a nice hearty breakfast or brunch and it is super easy to make. Part of the reason it is so easy to make is because it calls for Simply Potatoes, the sponsor of this post. This means you get all the goodness of fresh potatoes (never frozen) without having to peel and dice them. They also add just the right amount of onions and so you don’t have to worry about peeling and dicing those either- no tears- yay! You can learn more and see more of their prepared potato selections made of real ingredients which are located in the refrigerated dairy section at their website: Simply Potatoes.
Cheesy Potatoes And Ham
Cheesy Ham Potatoes Ingredients:
- 1 bag of Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes With Onion
- 1-2 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 tbsp of fresh herbs like parsley, thyme, and/or rosemary
- 3/4 cup of diced ham (can use deli slices or leftover baked ham)
- 1 cup of cheddar, shredded
- 1/2 cup of Monterey pepper jack cheese, shredded
- 4-8 eggs (optional)
How To Make Cheesy Potatoes With Ham:
In a large skillet over medium high heat, add oil (1 tbsp for nonstick pans, 2 tbsp for a cast iron or stainless steal pan) and allow to warm up a bit. Then add one bag of Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes With Onion and stir. Cover and allow to cook for about 5 minutes. Then stir again and allow to cook for another 5 minutes. Add your ham and fresh herbs and stir.
Cover and allow to cook for another 7 minutes. Stir and even out the potatoes and ham into a flat surface. Then add the cheese over the top of the potato mixture and cover and let cook for another 3 minutes over medium heat while the cheese melts.
I like to serve my Cheesy Ham Potatoes with a fried egg over the top. If you want to do that too, just fry some up while the cheese is melting in the pan.
Serve the Cheesy Potatoes And Ham and let cool a minute before devouring! I hope you enjoy this easy wholesome breakfast recipe! If you want more brunch recipe ideas, visit Simply Potatoes Breakfast Lovers and Simply Potatoes on Pinterest.
