Oats and potatoes are rather bland on their own, but when a little meat and onion are added, along with a spicy hot sauce on the table, this frittata like hash brown is extremely satisfying. —inpatskitchen
medium potatoes (I used Yukon Gold)
cup finely diced ham (1/4 inch dice)
medium green onions, finely sliced
cup rolled oats
eggs, lightly beaten
Additional sliced green onions for garnish
Your favorite hot sauce for serving (I like Cholula)
In This Recipe
Shred the potatoes on the large holes of a box grater(or use a shredding disc for your food processor) and then place them in a tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
Combine the potatoes, ham, oatmeal,green onion, eggs salt and pepper in a medium mixing bowl.
Heat the oil and butter in a 12 inch non stick frying pan , add the potato/oatmeal mixture and spread it out evenly. Cover and cook over medium heat for 7 or 8 minutes until the bottom browns nicely.
Invert the "cake" onto a platter and then slide it back in the pan. Continue to cook, covered again, for about 5 or 6 minutes until nicely browned on the bottom.
Cut into wedges to serve garnished with a few green onions and as much hot sauce as you like for the "kick"!
I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
