equal parts ham steak and potatoes, cut into 4-5″ chunks
onion, 1/4 part of ham AND potatoes
black pepper to taste.
Put everything in a food processor and pulse until it’s the consistency you want, this may take a few batches. Mix everything together in a large bowl, cover the bowl and refrigerate it for several hours. Pour off any water that comes out, preheat oil/fat in a frying pan on medium heat. Spread thin layer of hash, let it brown then mix or flip it. Brown the other side. Keep mixing and flipping until the potatoes are cooked and everything is nicely browned. Serve with eggs and sriracha ketchup.
Alright, this is the first post in my Freezer Stuff category, so let me sum up. The deal with it is that recipes in this category freeze well enough to suit me. It may not always thaw out perfect, but if it’s not good I’ll let you know. Fortunately this ham hash worked out great. This wasn’t actually planned as a freezer dish, but I kind of didn’t know that I was making so much. Here’s the ingredients, except for black pepper.Yep, potato, onion, ham and black pepper. Four ingredients and you don’t even need more salt, the ham has plenty. Although some bell pepper in there wouldn’t hurt.I did everything in shifts in my food processor and then just mixed it all together in a bowl. There was more than I had anticipated.
So I browned up some for dinner that night, with some scrambled eggs.
Then I put serving sized portions of the uncooked hash on aluminum foil, flattened them out, wrapped them up and froze them. Didn’t get a pic of the packaging pre-freeze, but here is one that I pulled out to make something awesome with this morning. Like I said, what I made was awesome and it involved sriracha ketchup, but I’ll post about it next week. Because I’m cruel. Heh.
