Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Heat 2 Tbs. oil over low heat in a 12-inch non-stick skillet (so potatoes don't stick). While skillet heats, prepare onion and ham as directed above. A few minutes before cooking, increase heat to medium-high. When oil starts to send up wisps of smoke, add onion and ham; cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, dice potatoes and toss with remaining oil. Transfer ham mixture to a bowl and reserve.
  2. Add potatoes to empty skillet; cook, stirring only occasionally so they form a golden-brown crust, about 10 minutes. As potatoes cook, mix ketchup, mustard, dried thyme, fresh parsley and 2 Tbs. of water. (Recipe can be prepared to this point up to 2 hours ahead. Spread hot potatoes on a large lipped cookie sheet; cover when cool. Return skillet to medium-high; add potatoes and re-crisp.)
  3. Return reserved ham mixture to skillet; stir in ketchup mixture, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until hash has nicely browned, about 5 minutes longer.

At first I was weary of this...but it was sooo good!, I didn't change a thing. The ketchup mixture is awesome!!! I made it exactly as it said and my entire family just loved it!

This was very good and very colorful using both kinds of potatoes. I did precook the cubed potatoes just a bit before I added them to the skillet since we do like our potatoes soft. I am not a fan of dijon mustard but I couldn't even tell it was in there.

I asked my husband to rate this. We didn't think this was bad, but we didn't think it was very good either. It definitely needs something with more substance -- some more flavor. If I try this again, I'll oven roast the potatoes (in bigger pieces), add some garlic and rosemary to the ham mixture, and toss it all together.
