Food Network Chefs Cooking Challenge

Sarah at I Thank My Mother hosts the FNCCC, where every week a different Food Network host/ess is picked and you are free to choose any of that persons recipes to cook and share.

This week is Ina Garten. The Food Network site has over 600 of her recipes, but it didn't take me long to find one to help me use up some potatos and leftover sausage that needed to be eaten - Country Hashed Browns

5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 pounds boiling potatoes, peeled and 1/2-inch diced
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions (2 onions)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons minced scallions, white and green parts
1/2 pound smoked ham slices, 1/2-inch diced (I used some chopped up leftover sausage)

Melt the butter in a large (10 to 12-inch) saute pan. Add the potatoes, onions, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally with a flat spatula, until the potatoes are evenly browned and cooked through. (Allow the potatoes to cook for 5 minutes before turning.) Turn off the heat and add the parsley, scallions and ham. Reheat on top of the stove or over a hot charcoal grill.

This was very delicious - any dish full of potatos is a hit with me.
Thanks to Sarah for the challenge, and go check out her blog for the list of upcoming chefs and weeks.

Next time, I will try that. Mine was nasty!

Sarah said...

This is what I do too....figure out what recipe I can use up things I have - or at least one that I don't have to buy everything for. This looks good. Potatoes and sausage are OK in my book too :) Thanks for participating in FNCCC! What fun to see what everyone chooses~
