Yukon, gold or red potatoes are preferred for this recipe. These potatoes have enough starch, allowing them to remain intact during the cooking process.
You can cook on high heat to speed up the cooking. The potatoes should get soft in 4 hours.
You can add sliced celery, mushrooms or diced green peppers along with the onions
You can replace the ham with diced smoked sausage or crumbled cooked bacon. For vegetarians, you can use vegetable sausage crumbles instead.
