Leftovers are good, but leftovers turned into something new and delicious are even better! This Ham and Potato Hash is the perfect way to use up leftover ham to create a great post-holiday breakfast that everyone will love. Plus, it’s customizable to use whatever other leftovers you might have on hand.

Top it with a fried egg, or eat it as is. Either way, it’ll be delicious and dare we say it, maybe even better than the actual holiday dinner?

Ingredients for Leftover Breakfast Hash 

Here is what we included in our leftover hash. 

  • Sweet Potato (or leftover roasted potatoes)
  • Yellow Potatoes (or leftover roasted potatoes)
  • Onion
  • Bell Pepper
  • Leftover Ham
  • Chili Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Butter or Ghee
  • Eggs

It’s great if you have leftover roasted potatoes to use this. If you do, you can add those right into the skillet with the ham. If you do not have leftover potatoes, you’ll need to parboil them first, before adding into the skillet.

To parboil the potatoes: Cover the diced potatoes with cold water. Bring them up to a boil and cook until they are just barely tender. Drain, and rinse under cool water.

Have other leftover veggies?

Add in other leftover veggies you might have on hand(think green beans, mushrooms or Brussels) in with the ham.

  2. Meanwhile heat oil in a large well seasoned cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and pepper, and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Add diced ham and cook until it begins to get crispy. Stir in chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper
  3. Move the mixture to the edges of the pan and melt the butter. Add the potatoes, and cook until starting to get crispy. Flip the potatoes with a spatula and cook on the other side.
  4. Stir hash together and season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
  5. Serve and top with a fried egg, if desired.

Recipe Notes
