On the Trainwreck Track ~ Potato Trainwreck

I have fallen in love with the potato: tasty, versatile, economical, and filled with nutrients.

Before, I occasionally bought & cooked/baked potatoes.  Nowadays, it's not unusual for me to go through a 5 lb bag in a week.

I love that you can stretch a lot of meals with potatoes.

My trainwreck dinner for the week is a potato dish that I threw together with what I had in my refrigerator.

Potatoes, diced
Red Onion, diced
Sweet Peppers, diced
Taylor Ham, diced
1 tbsp Butter
8 eggs, beaten
garlic powder, salt, & pepper to taste

I did all the peeling and dicing this morning.  I sprayed a 9" x 13" pan with cooking spray and baked the diced potatoes for about 15 minutes on 375 degrees.  I fried the taylor ham in a bit of butter and set aside.  I then sauteed the onions and peppers until soft.  I added the taylor ham back in and cooked it a little while longer after I added garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste.

I took the potatoes out of the oven and added the meat, onions, and peppers. I carefully mixed it together.  I topped this with the beaten eggs.  Bake at 375 - 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

My husband and I both really liked this meal.  I thought it was a little dry but he said it wasn't.  I topped mine with ketchup!!   We polished off 1/2 of this dish and will eat the rest tomorrow.  Enjoy!

  1. Yum!! That sounds really good! I make a potato dish with smoked sausage, sweet peppers, onion, and spinach (sometimes shredded cabbage). Saute much like you did yours. I bet scrambling some eggs in with it would be yummy too! Thanks for your recipe! I love one-pan/dish meals!

    1. You are very welcome, Terri. I think it would be better with some kind of cream of something soup or a Cheddar Cheese soup.

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting! I look forward to getting to know you better.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
