Weekend Cookbook Challenge 33 - Fall Vegetables

I don't know about where you live, but here Fall has arrived with a bang. I feel like I haven't been warm in a week. My salad greens are sitting quietly in the fridge as I've been making foods to keep us warm; soups, casseroles etc. I had planned to find a soup or stew recipe that would fit into October's Weekend Cookbook Challenge theme - Fall Vegetables, as chosen by Lisa, our host from Confessions of an Apron Queen.

But last month Scott bought me a new cookbook for my birthday - Classic Rachel Ray 30 Minute Meals. And the first recipe I opened the book to last week was perfect for both the challenge and a warming dinner - Potato and Apple Home Fries.

This was very nice, and I'll make this again with a few changes. I'd definitely add some onion, and I might add a little more apple. I'll also play around with the seasoning. Our grill spice blend didn't add anything to the dish.

Potato and Apple Home Fries
from Classic Rachel Ray 30 Minute Meals

3 tb butter
24 oz diced breakfast potatos (aka hashbrowns) or 24 oz cooked diced potatos
1/2 lb ham steak, dinced
1 green apple, cored and diced
1 tb grill seasoning

Heat a large non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add butter and let melt. Add potatos, ham and apple and season them with the grill spice. Turn every 5 minutes or so, letting the potatos brown on all sides. Cook 20 minutes, then serve.
