Ham and Potato Skillet

This is one of my kids' favorite leftover ham recipes - I haven't made this in years!  They were happy to see this one return to the dinner table last night :-) 

What I love about this is that it's so flexible, just throw in what ever sounds good to you and how ever much you want.  I usually do ham, brocolli, potatoes and cheese and tend to stick with just that - but, I challenge you to be creative!  Ha!

Ham and Potato Skillet
Original Recipe by Kitchen Groovy

Leftover ham, cut up and chopped - roughly 2 cups
1 package hash browns - I use Southern Style (diced potatoes)
Cheddar Cheese - roughly 1 cup

Cook hash browns according to package directions. 

In a separate skillet, cook up ham and brocolli - just long enough to cook the brocolli.  Cover so the brocolli steams and cooks faster.  Stir occasionally to keep ham from sticking to pan and burning.

Once everything is cooked, toss cheese into the hash browns and stir.  Stir in ham and brocolli to combine.

Enjoy and live with gusto!


  1. Yum! Doesn't this remind you of the Baker Square Skillets? Wish they never shut down.

  2. This sounds so yummy, Carina! I was lucky enough to have leftover ham sent home with me from the in-laws. Gonna have to give it a try!!

  3. Great idea using hashbrowns. Much easier than slicing up potatoes and frying them and probably the same flavor too. I'm getting hungry now :)

  4. Hi Carina, haha this is perfect lunch for me. I have 2 pieces of hash browns that are not enough for family breakfast, but this is enough for a side dish for our weekday lunch with the kids! Got all ingredients so yes, will cook tomorrow lunch! So easy and looks yummy! Thanks!
