Slow Cooker Ham & Potato Hash

I’m not sure if this recipe for Slow Cooker Ham & Potato Hash is a breakfast recipe or dinner recipe. I think it could be both! It’s a tasty way to use up leftover ham and doesn’t require much in terms of prep work. Plus, it’s a slow cooker recipe and it’s that time of year again. I also like that it doesn’t require a full day of cooking time. You could put it on at lunch and it would be ready to serve at dinner time.

There is never any leftovers when I make this recipe. Creamy potatoes, salty ham and a bit of veggies makes this comfort food a winner in my books.
