Roasted potatoes with ham, onion, and seasonings make a fabulous one-dish, everyday meal. The recipe is simple, takes very little time to prepare and cook, and is an excellent way to use leftover ham.
This delicious dish features sliced potatoes with cubes of ham. The ingredients are browned first, then combined in a baking dish and roasted to perfection. While the onions provide more flavor, you can certainly skip that ingredient. Your family will enjoy this hearty, earthy dish, which works well for breakfast, brunch, or supper.
3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil, or canola oil, lard, or duck fat
2 pounds potatoes, scrubbed and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
12 to 16 ounces ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large, heavy iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt or heat 3 tablespoons of fat. Add potato slices and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and partially cooked. Remove to a large bowl and set aside.
Add ham and onion to skillet. Cook, stirring, until onions are translucent and lightly browned and the ham begins to develop a browned crust. If necessary, add another tablespoon of fat to skillet.
Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute longer.
Lightly grease or oil a large 2 1/2- to 3-quart baking dish. Transfer ham and onion mixture to bowl with potatoes. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley, kosher salt, and black pepper. Toss gently to blend ingredients thoroughly.
Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and nicely browned.
- Red-skinned potatoes can be left unpeeled. Either peeled or unpeeled russet potatoes or Yukon Gold potatoes work as well.
- Use leftover cubed ham or a cubed center-cut ham slice to make this dish.
- If using olive oil, make sure it's light or pure olive oil. The virgin and extra-virgin varieties have a low smoke point that will not stand up to the high temperatures required during sautéing and roasting.
- For extra color and flavor, add about 1/2 cup of chopped red or green bell pepper to the skillet along with the garlic.
- Add one or two thinly sliced carrots to the skillet with the potatoes.
- Omit the ham and use 1 1/2 to 2 cups of leftover cubed roast pork or beef in the recipe. Add it to the skillet along with the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
