Recipe by Hey Jude

This is yummy comfort food and a great way to use up leftover ham. I don't know where this recipe came from, it's one that my mother made a lot when I was a child.

This is an excellent dish. I can see putting it together the night before and having it for breakfast the next morning. Preparation was straight forward and simple. I can see making this again. Thanks for sharing.
