1 LB

Gold Potatoes (Peeled and Cut into 1 to 1/2 Inch Chunks)

2 LBS

Yellow Onion (Chopped)

1

Garlic Clove (Peeled and Minced)

1

Eggs

7-8

Cheddar (Shredded)

1/2 Cup

Olive Oil

3TBL

Salt

1 TSP

Black Pepper

1/4 TSP + More to Taste

Sweet Paprika

1/2 TSP

Green Onions (Sliced)

1/2 Cup

Sour Cream (for Garnish)

1/2 Cup

Preparation

Fill large pot 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the potatoes and boil until just tender, approximately 10 minutes. Strain and let dry.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Preheat large oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add 1 TBL of oil to pan. Add diced ham and saute until lightly browned. Remove ham from pan.

Add chopped onion to pan and saute until lightly browned. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Remove onion and garlic from pan and add to ham.

Toss potatoes in salt, pepper and paprika. Heat 1 TBL of oil in skillet. Add potatoes to skillet and cook until nicely browned. Once browned, remove entire skillet from heat. Add ham, onion and garlic mixture and stir to incorporate.

With a large spoon or the back of a ladle, make 7-8 indentations in the potato mixture. Into each indentation, crack an egg. Salt and pepper each egg.

Put skillet into preheated oven and set timer for 5 minutes.

At the 5 minute mark, carefully (use oven mitts!) pull skillet from oven and top with shredded cheese. Put skillet back in oven and set timer for another 7 minutes.

At the 7 minute mark, again (carefully!) pull skillet from oven and check eggs. They should be just set on top and only have the slightest jiggle in the yolks. If you like your eggs a little more done, put back into oven for another minute or two.

If the eggs are done the way you like, sprinkle entire skillet with sliced green onions and dollops of sour cream. Serve with toast and hot sauce if that appeals to you.

Enjoy with great exuberance.
