Try it Tuesday-Lumberjack Hash

Not pig slop
Not pig slop

I know what you’re thinking.  After months of reading about my menu planning gripes, I’ve finally lost it and am now feeding my family slop.  Well, it might look like slop, but I assure you, it’s not.  It’s Lumberjack hash and if you have leftover holiday ham, but don’t think you can manage to eat one more batch of au gratin potatoes?  This is the recipe for you.

If you don’t have leftover ham, but you like ham?  This might be the recipe for you too.

Lumberjack Hash

  • 4 tsp oil of your choosing.
  • 1  cup  chopped onion
  • 1  cup  chopped bell peppers. I used red and green
  • 2  garlic cloves, minced
  • 8  cups  frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 4  ounces  diced ham
  • 3/4  cup  (3 ounces) reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

Heat oil/butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and garlic; cook 3 minutes. Add potatoes, salt, pepper, and ham; cook 16 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Top with cheese; cook 2 minutes or until cheese melts.  Serves four.  I added in some extra peppers, ham and potatoes to feed my hungry minions.

You won’t be sorry. If you like ham and potatoes.
