This is such a great, easy recipe to use up some of that left over Christmas or Easter Ham. The first time I made it, I basically followed the recipe (did not use as much brown sugar, I don't like really sweet) the second time I did add about 1/2 a small onion and a little cheese mixed in and a little on the top. You do not have to it will stand on it's own but I like to fiddle with recipes.
DON'T use fresh pineapple in this recipe. There is a chemical in fresh pineapple (which is neutralized by the canning process) which turns the ham to mush. Which I forgot until after I tried to eat this. BLECH! No fault of the recipe, just a caution for others. :) The kids loved it, but the adults couldn't eat it.
