Recipe by Kat's Mom
This seems like a great way to transform Easter ham leftovers. Found this recipe on www.evanwilliams.com and it is the Kentucky State Fair 2005 2nd Place Red Ribbon winner from Fran Cox. I had never heard of burgoo and had to do a little research. Wikipedia says: "Burgoo is a term used for many types of stew made from a mixture of ingredients. In particular, burgoo is a traditional Kentuckian stew, served commonly at the Kentucky Derby." It may be a strange name, but this is being added to my "Coming Soon To A Kitchen Near You" menu! Serve with hot cornbread sticks or muffins.
