Ham Hash Browns

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ImPat

This one is from our local/state paper and sounds like a good way to use up left over ham from Christmas - suggested you serve a poached egg. Times are estimated.

DS is home for a few days so I did a Sat morning brunch that included these great hash browns. I didn't have any green onions so I used red onion which helped with the color factor. The recipe worked very well in an old and well used cast iron skillet. It was a great hit with DS, he ate 3/4 of them, lol. Hub and I also enjoyed them very much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the potatoes and boil until they are tender and then mash them finely and add the milk, butter and salt and pepper and then fold through the onions and ham.
  2. Melt the second lot of butter in a medium pan and add the mixture and cook over a moderate heat until the base is golden brown and then turn it over; if it breaks up a bit fear not and cook until the second side is also golden and crisp.
  3. Break into sections and serve with a scatter of parsley.
