  • 2 potatoes peeled and cut into one-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup cubed ham
  • 1 bell pepper roughly chopped
  • 1 small handful scallions chopped
  • 3 to 4 eggs (depending on their size), beaten
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for about ten minutes or until just done. DO NOT overcook because you’re still going to cook them in butter later. Drain.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan.
  • Add the ham, bell pepper and scallions. Cook for about a minute.
  • Add the drained potatoes and cook, stirring often, for about another minute.
