Hammy Hashbrowns Straight From the Pantry

Featured Food Storage: Canned Ham
Pantry Suggestion: Boxed dehydrated Golden Russet hash brown potatoes

I bought a case of canned smoked ham. Unfortunately, I have never used smoked canned ham. I have been trying to think of a way to use this new addition to my food storage when I caught sight of the dwindling supply of boxed hash browns. Oh Yes! This had to work. And it did and it was delicious and it was so pantry friendly. This is so ridiculously easy it is more like a tip on how to use that canned ham. It is also a review of one of my favorite pantry items. I love these hash brown boxes.

They store so beautifully, they cook up absolutely delicious with just a little oil and they are way better than the frozen variety. Yes, I know I could shred my own hash browns but frankly this is so much easier. Open box, pour water to fill line and let sit for 10 minutes. I buy mine in a multi-pack from Costco.
Here is my recipe for Hammy Hash browns.
One box of hash browns or 3 cups other hash browns
2 - 6 oz cans of smoked ham
Salt and pepper
2 Tb oil
1/2 Cup cheddar cheese (optional)
Prepare your hash browns according to directions. Heat grill pan. Heat oil. Add hash browns and ham. Stir with spatula and then let set until underside begins to brown. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to turn hash browns and ham until browned. Add cheese if using and stir until cheese starts to melt. Serve warm
TIP: These would be yummy with a little salsa from the pantry.
