Judy O'grady's Ham

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mandabears

Great recipe for left over ham. I love it so much I have been known to buy a ham steak to use in this recipe. Another Peg Bracken recipe. I have changed the type of noodles I use Spinach Fettucine or Mixed Fettucine instead of plain egg noodles. I also grind the ham in my food processor, instead of chopping.

This is an excellent recipe! I made it for The Name Game - my mom is Judy & her uncle is an O'Grady, lol We loved this. I used whole wheat noodles & doubled the ham. I considered using 2 cans of soup because I like it GOOEY. 1 was enough but 2 might be good, too. ;) A definite HIT with the kids!! Quick & easy to make. Absolute comfort food. Thank you!
