Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Heat 2 Tbs. oil over low heat in a 12-inch non-stick skillet (so potatoes don't stick). While skillet heats, prepare onion and ham as directed above. A few minutes before cooking, increase heat to medium-high. When oil starts to send up wisps of smoke, add onion and ham; cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, dice potatoes and toss with remaining oil. Transfer ham mixture to a bowl and reserve.
  2. Add potatoes to empty skillet; cook, stirring only occasionally so they form a golden-brown crust, about 10 minutes. As potatoes cook, mix ketchup, mustard, dried thyme, fresh parsley and 2 Tbs. of water. (Recipe can be prepared to this point up to 2 hours ahead. Spread hot potatoes on a large lipped cookie sheet; cover when cool. Return skillet to medium-high; add potatoes and re-crisp.)
  3. Return reserved ham mixture to skillet; stir in ketchup mixture, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until hash has nicely browned, about 5 minutes longer.

This was very good and very colorful using both kinds of potatoes. I did precook the cubed potatoes just a bit before I added them to the skillet since we do like our potatoes soft. I am not a...

Easy and delicious. I used a bit more of all the seasonings than called for, and garlic salt in place of salt, but that was all I changed. I was worried the potatoes would be raw in the middle...

This is delicious. I had to omit the sweet potatoes, as I was out, and therefore cut down the ham to about half a pound, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Very easy and doesn't take l...

This was really good even though I goofed. Bought ham ends at the deli (always less expensive) It wound up being hot ham! The men and teenagers liked it... but the younger kids...Not so much. ...

Intersting flavor. Made this for dinner. Wasn't impressed. But I had leftovers for breakfast. Tasted much better and more enjoyable.

The flavors in this dish really worked well together. I was a bit leary about the ketchup, but it really tastes great!

This was very good. My daughter is allergic to mustard so I used a bit of cider vinegar. I also cooked some diced celery with the onions.
