This looks like a simple, easy dish that comes together quickly for a brunch if some of the ingredients are prepared ahead of time. I liked that it was not a corned-beef hash recipe, too! Comes from "The Ultimate Cooking Course", 2003.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 cups cooked ham, chopped
- 3 cups potatoes, cooked and chopped
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 -2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 6 eggs
- hot pepper sauce, to taste
- parsley, for garnishing
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in frying pan; cook onion until soft, stirring occasionally.
- Transfer onion to a bowl. Add ham, cheese, potatoes, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt & pepper; mix well to combine.
- Spread hash evenly over greased baking dish in a layer approx 1 inch deep.
- Make 6 hollows in the hash; slip an egg into each. This works most easily if you crack eggs individually into a bowl then slide them from the bowl to the hollow.
- Melt remaining butter in small pan; season with hot pepper sauce to taste.
- Drizzle seasoned butter over eggs & hash.
- Bake until eggs are set and cooked to taste (15-20+ minutes).
- Serve hot, in dish, garnished with parsley.
I liked it as it had good flavor but the recipe doesn't tell us how to cook the potatoes, so I pan fried them and finished in the oven. A few weren't quite done. I did add some egg beaters over the top to add more egg into the "hash" I also would suggest cooking the onion very small dice.
i loved this recipe. I increased the potatoes to 4 cups and cut down the ham to 2 cups or so (all i had in the house). added garlic powder and only used 4 eggs. was a great tasting one-dish meal!
