Ham and Spinach Hash with Fried Eggs

My little man is slowly getting over his crummy little virus, but he did manage to give it to both Kerry and I. Which is no wonder, since he sneezed directly in my face at least 10 times. The joys of mothermood! 😉

This recipe is an old standby I’ve been making since I was first married and it’s a great one to throw together when you are too tired for too much effort. And it is one of my husband’s favorites, so bonus points there!

Ham and Spinach Hash with Fried Eggs

2-3 medium size red potatoes, sliced or cubed

1 hamsteak or 1/2 package deli ham

1 box frozen spinach, defrosted

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

olive oil


salt and pepper to taste

2 eggs

In a large skillet, melt 1 TB butter and 2 TB olive oil. Add chopped onion, potatoes, and salt and pepper and cook until desired level of tender/crispiness is achieved. Add ham and spinach and cook until heated through. Meanwhile, in a seperate skillet, melt 1 TB of butter and add eggs. Fry until desired doneness. I like mine over easy, Kerry prefers over hard.

When hash is warmed through, transfer to plate and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese and the fried egg. Serve with extra cheese, hot sauce, ketchup or whatever other toppings sound yummy! This meal is really so simple and versatile. You could also use fresh spinach and wilt it in if you prefer. I just use whichever I have on hand.

Also, this makes two adult servings large enough to share with a toddler, so you may need to adjust according to the size of your family.

Hope you enjoy it! Let me know if you try it!
