I am basing this review on my wife and my portions, because I did not use the vodka in my kids recipe. I made the recipe exacttly as posted for us, but added a little more ham. The flavor and taste were FABULOUS.A real nice simple recipe that definately will be repeated again. Thans for this recipe . 5+++ stars !!! Made for Aus/Nz recipe swap#25.
