  1. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until potatoes are tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onion and cook until onions are golden in color, about 8 minutes. Add the ham and continue to cook and stir until the ham begins to brown. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet. Add the drained potatoes and saute until browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in ham mixture and the parsley. Cook all together for a few more minutes and serve hot, topped with dollops of sour cream.

Okay, I would place my rating for this recipe at 4 and a half stars. The taste of this meal is absolutely incredible, and I'm fourteen and I found the recipe fairly easy to make (the part where they nail you is prepping up the stuff to cook). Now, I took off half of a star because the taste is one that grows on you. After too much, you'll want to push the plate away, good as it is. I also used Black Forest Ham, which added a nice, fancy touch to it. Also used more onions because I'm an onion addict. All in all, tasted great, but don't put too large a portion on people's plate and tell them not to do the same. Instead, save uneaten portions for leftovers and eat it slowly.

Sorry Lola, but this dish is average at best. I followed the recipe using ham from a leftover roast and was very disappointed with the results. Next time I will put my leftover ham to better use. Although this recipe received several good reviews, it's not one I will use again.

Any recipe that my picky kids will eat deserves 5 stars, although I did sub onion powder for the onions so that they would eat it ;). I made this for breakfast, added white pepper, wrapped them in a warmed tortilla...YUMMY!! Thanks Lola!

This is a good base recipe for using up leftover ham. I've made it now several times after coming home from a 12 hour work day. It's fast and good. I usually have quite a bit more ham so I add what I have. Sometimes I put in a cup or so of frozen corn or peas. I never use the sour cream...other wise I follow the basic recipe pretty much. There are never any leftovers. Thanks!

We loved the slight crispiness of the ham and potatoes and the soft sweetness of the onion (I used a vidalia). We didn't feel this needed sour cream. Although we had this for dinner, my husband thought it would be a nice side for eggs... or even the filling to an omelette.

This worked very well for 2. It is an easy recipe to make in steps. I try to get as much of my dinner prep done in the early afternoon so I can spend time with my daughter when she gets home from school. At dinner time I finished cooking in no time. I think that it would be just as quick to cook all at once. The dinner got raves from my love!

So good and so simple. Did not add the sour cream. Great with leftover Honey Baked ham.
