This is great. I added a handful of chopped green peppers and some fresh mushrooms with the onions. Also, after I started making this I discovered that there wasn't any milk, so I used frozen creamed corn instead of regular corn for creaminess and then added some of the water from cooking the potatos. This is a wonderful dish and I have now made it twice this week to use up leftover ham.

This was very excellent, my family loved it. I have already gave this recipe to a friend. It is fast and easy to make, short cooking time and makes a great meal if you are in a hurry, I added celery very thinly chopped and a cooked 2 carrot diced with the potato, to add color and taste to the dish. I used red potato keeptthe skin.
