Ham and Cheese Hash Browns

This recipe resembles a hearty potato hash and is a great use for leftover ham. Cooked entirely in the microwave, it's ready to eat in less than 15 minutes, so pair it with fresh fruit or a salad for a truly effortless dinner.

2 servings (serving size: 1 3/4 cups)

* 3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes with onions and peppers (such as Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien)
* 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
* 1/2 cup drained canned quartered artichoke hearts, chopped
* 1/4 cup chopped green onions
* 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
* 3 ounces smoked ham, cut into bite-sized pieces
* 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Combine potatoes and chicken broth in a 1-quart microwave-safe casserole. Cover with lid, and microwave at HIGH 12 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes.

Uncover dish. Stir in 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, green onions, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, and ham. Sprinkle with cheese. Microwave, uncovered, at HIGH 1 minute.
