Healthycooking's picture
  Butter/Margarine 4 Tablespoon
  Small thin skinned potatoes 2 , peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (About 3/4 Cup)
  Onion 1 Small, finely chopped
  Diced cooked ham/Diced cooked beef / pork 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Eggs 3
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1 Dash
  Milk 1 Tablespoon
  Shredded cheddar cheese/Shredded jack cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

In a 10-inch frying pan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter.
Add potatoes, onion, and ham; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender when pierced (about 15 minutes).
Sprinkle with parsley, add remaining butter, and distribute mixture evenly in pan.
In a bowl, beat eggs with salt, pepper, and milk until well blended.
Pour egg mixture into pan and cook without stirring.
As egg mixture begins to set, lift edges with a spatula and tilt pan to let uncooked egg flow underneath.
Continue cooking until eggs are softly set; top should still be moist.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese; cover pan just until cheese is melted.
Cut into wedges to serve.
