Nothing more to say than I had a ton of random leftover ingredients which then became a ham and potato hash. I had cut up ham left over from Easter, I had 1 sweet potato, a bunch of yukon potatoes and some bell peppers, so heck why not? Also not too mention it was nice out so why not get outside on that grill with a little southwest rubbed chicken! Dang tasty. I think that’s the whole beauty of this dish. It was simply a bunch of left over ingredients, with a little creativity, turned into 1 heck of a meal!
Ham and Potato Hash lookin’ good!!!
