A great way to use up any leftover ham, just grind ham in the food processor.

I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this recipe at all! I followed the directions to the letter and there was just no flavor whatsoever to the gravy. I tried to liven it up a little by adding chive and onion flavored cream cheese. Granted, that did help a little, but not enough for me to want to make this again.
