Every time we go, we almost always order The Ultimate Skillet. It's basically a simple skillet of potatoes, veggies, and ham, and it is delicious. So, of course, like any other stand-out dish, I had to try to recreate it at home. I have to say this recipe turned out spot on, the only thing missing is the actual skillet!

First, gather your ingredients.
Peel and chop your potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Place into a pot of water and bring to a boil until fork tender- about 10 minutes.
While the potatoes are boiling, chop your mushrooms, onion, and green pepper. Set aside.
Drain potatoes and set in a paper towel lined bowl to get out excess water.
Once your potatoes are fairly dry, brown in a skillet with 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp canola oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In the same skillet, add an additional 1 tbsp each of butter and canola oil. Saute your veggies until onions are translucent and peppers are slightly softened, about 7 minutes.
Once your vegetables are finished, add browned potatoes and ham and toss. Careful not to break up your potatoes too much. Salt and pepper to taste.
Then just top with a sprinkle of cheese and some diced avocado and enjoy!
This dish is also great with a fried egg with runny yolk, a dollop of sour cream, or even a bit of ketchup on top. Try it!
