    Mmm...a great fall or early spring day dish. Oh the smell as it cooks. What a great way to use leftover ham.

      This is a *fabulous* version of Hoppin' John recipe! I used minced garlic and pan fried it bit before adding to the pot. Some Hoppin' John dishes that I have had in the past have been pretty bland.... NOT this one! Full of flavor and a great recipe! Thanks Baby Kato!
