Leftover Ham, With
South West Pepper Fried Potatoes

As I always say, lefotvers shouldn't be considered leftovers, but should be thought of as what they, re-purposed food. In reality, you've prepped it for another meal.

This one happens to be my favorite use for a leftover baked ham. It slices easily, and being cooked on top of the potatoes, it's like not cooking it at all. If you're serving a vegetable with this one, you'll probably spend more time on that than this potato recipe.

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 6 Medium Red Potatoes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt, divided
  • 3 Teaspoons Black Pepper, divided
  • 2 Teaspoons 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.
