all in one pot... it's actually 2

I have been sitting at my desk working on the same exam for three days.
it would not be an exaggeration to say that that I have considered dropping.
theory and philosophy are not for me. I am not by any means a deep thinker.
at least not about topics that have nothing whatsoever to do with me and my life.
I don't think that this is a bad thing. we can't all be deep thinkers, can we?
we can't all be dreaming up the next big philosophical theory or architectural movement.

alright, enough of this. I have to take my break away from all this talk while I can.

today is Thursday, therefore I am going to bless you with a recipe! this weeks recipe is:

cheesy one pot hash

what you need:


1 1/2  pounds red potatoes, 
          cut into 1-inch chunks

      1  tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

    12  ounces ham steak,
          precooked and diced

      2  bunches green onions, diced
          green and white parts divided

      1  teaspoon paprika

   1/2  teaspoon garlic powder

   1/2 teaspoon salt

   1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 1/2 ounces baby spinach

      2 tablespoons water

   3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

how you make it:


1. place potatoes in a saucepan fitted with a steamer basket and cook
    [covered, over simmering water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes]
2. heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
    add ham and whites of green onion and cook, 
    [stirring often, until onions are slightly tender, 1 to 2 minutes]
3. add potatoes to skillet and saute'
    [stirring occasionally, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes]
4. sprinkle paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper over the potato-and-ham mixture; stir to coat
5. stir in spinach and green part of green onion
6. drizzle water into skillet, sprinkle cheddar over mixture
    [cover and cook until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes]

  1. Ugh Bring me some! Right now please. Delivery accepted. You know where to find me. Looks so much better than my oatmeal I had for breakfast.

  2. I'm absolutely loving your recipes, this one included!

    Question from the kitchen-stupid person: what if I don't have a steamer basket for a saucepan? how should I achieve that same kind of potato?

    Thanks :)


  3. Look at you little miss Suzy Homemaker! This looks DELISH!
