Country Ham and Potatoes
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I am giving this 5 stars even though that is not really country ham (although I am from the deep south, I am not insulted). The finished recipe is very tasty and very easy and quick to make. It is good for dinner, as suggested, with a vegetable and/or salad and rolls, or delicious for breakfast (my preference) with eggs, hot biscuits and fruit (washed down with strong coffee...thank you!). My North Carolina husband and in-laws loved it, even though they are country ham purists.
This is definitely NOT country ham!! It’s an insult to those of us who truly love authentic country ham.
Need red eye gravy made with strong black coffee and Coca-Cola. Especially if you are from the deep South.
Great recipe--so quick and tasty! I used a bag of small multi-colored potatoes I bought at Aldi's. Removed the ham from the skillet after heating/browning then sauteed potatoes in drippings, added a little water and cooked, covered, until tender.
I haven't made this, but that picture is plainly city ham, not country ham.
How many potatoes make up a 1-1/2 lbs. for the recipe?
I can't believe anyone needs a "recipe" for this meal. Just common sense.
I do not parboil the potatoes...instead I brown the potatoes in oil, then add 1/4 cup of water to the pan and cover for about 3-5 minutes. Remove the lid and add the ham. Also, I add garlic, onion powder parsley, and shredded Parmesan cheese. This also can be placed in the oven and roasted.
This is very tasty, easy and fast, even with parboiling the potatoes. Just pick a ham that's not salty. Add green beans on the side. Will use this often.
Delicious! Just be sure to cook the potatoes first (I parboil and drain) before attempting to brown them. I made the mistake of using raw ones the first time, and they stayed raw inside although browned on the outside.
