Leftover Ham With,
South West, Pepper Fried Potatoes

This is a simple dish that permits the flavor of the potatoes to shine through. This is NOT one that I ever tinker with because it's so good in it's simplicity. By adding the Leftover Ham, you've turned it into a 1 pot meal.

It's also pretty spicy, but you can cool it down a bit, by serving with sour cream.

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 6 Medium Red Potatoes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt, divided
  • 3 Teaspoons Black Pepper, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Butt Kickin' Blacken, Southwest Blend, divided
  • Leftover Baked Ham

1. Place the butter and oil in a frying pan, turn to low to let it melt.

2. Slice the potatoes into 1/8" round slices, and add to the pan. Mix the potatoes up with the melted butter and oil.

3. Sprinkle the spices onto the potatoes, 1/4 Teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of the black pepper, and 1 teaspoon of the blacken. Mix this up, then add the rest, and mix it up again.

4. Cover the pan, and cook for a total of about 15 - 20 minutes, stirring every 5 - 7 minutes. If you find them burning, without getting soft, turn the heat down a bit. If they're getting soft, with no browning, turn the heat up a little. The potatoes are done, when they're soft.

5. Add ham pieces after the last stirring, and cover again. The ham will steam to re-heat. Cook another 5 minutes, and serve.
