This recipe comes from Food & Wine magazine (1997). The recipe is credited to Diana Sturgis. I don't usually add the sun dried tomatoes, but I included them since they were in the original recipe. We usually have this for dinner, but it could be a great brunch recipe as well. The left overs are fantastic served cold. This is a delicious use of left-over ham.
