My fiance was talking about having a craving for ham and pineapple one night so I started browsing recipes. I found a few and since I couldn't decide which one to make, I combined them and came up with this. I thought it was delicious, but I think I'll use crushed pineapple next time to spread the taste of it more. You could also make this to use up your leftover Easter or Christmas ham! I hope you enjoy it!
