Ham & Potatoes in a Skillet

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

My mom showed me this trick to flavor potatoes to go with a ham slice. Easy and delicious. Serve with green beans and/or a salad.


  1. Dice potatoes into small pieces. I use thin skinned potatoes and don't bother to peel, but if you prefer, peeled potatoes work well too. (The potatoes can be cooked in advance, or, of you want a really speedy meal, you could use the pre-cut pre-cooked diced potatoes from the produce section).
  2. Boil potatoes in lightly salted water until soft, about 25 minutes. Drain.
  3. Fry ham in heavy skillet over medium heat for about 3 minutes, flip and cook for a few more minutes, until there's a nice bit of juice in the pan. Add brown sugar to the pan, and turn ham to coat. simmer for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until ham is heated through.
  4. Add potatoes to pan (you don't have to remove the ham, just lift it with a fork and put the potatoes underneath). Stir to coat evenly.
  5. Serve.
