Recipe by Lorac

A great recipe for leftover ham. Serve it over buttered toast or leftover mashed potatoes for a quick and easy meal.

I have always served this over mashed potatoes. It's a nice way to make instant potatoes (If you don't have leftovers of the real thing on hand) a little more "special." It is a very comforting and tasty dish. I have even made a "prep ahead cassarole" version to take as a meal to a friend. To do this I made the potatoes and lined the bottom of a 9 by 13 dish with them, and then made the sauce and poured it on top of the potatoes. It warms up in a cassarole dish in about 20-30 minutes at 350.
