Country ham is the thick-sliced ham that you can purchase in the meat section at your grocery store. Combine that with some potatoes, vegetables, and seasonings for a delicious country ham hash breakfast.

This is similar to a breakfast casserole. It isn’t as heavy as a typical casserole, but has the same feel.

A “hash” was originally created as a way to use up leftovers. And that’s exactly what we did for ours. I purchased the ham just for the recipe, but the rest was extra from other meals.

The red onion was leftover from making guacamole and the bell pepper from making some taco-stuffed bell peppers. Yes, we had a Tex-Mex night recently. Since we needed a way to use these up, and had some potatoes, too, we decided to make it into a hash for “Big Breakfast Sunday”. As I mentioned, the only thing I purchased specifically for this was the country ham. We get deli-sliced ham for sandwiches often, but not country ham.

Step by Step

In a large skillet, fry the ham until it’s browned on both sides, about 10 minutes.

Remove the country ham from the skillet and return it to medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the skillet and add the potatoes, onion, and bell pepper. Cover and cook until the potatoes start to soften, about 8-10 minutes, stirring every 2-3 minutes.

Leftovers

Let any leftover country ham hash cool to room temperature. Place in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat, add the leftovers to a skillet over medium heat. Stir often while cooking for about 8-10 minutes, until everything is warmed through.
