Ham Stew

"This could be considered a hearty soup rather than a stew. Great way to use of leftover ham. Creamy cheesy good! Don't remember where the recipe came from, but it is delicious!"

    This is a wonderful thick, creamy stew. Great for a chilly Fall day.

    I really enjoyed this dish. I'm always looking for ways to use leftover ham after the holidays. I made it as written--just added a dash of pepper as I was stirring in the last ingredients. With a little salad and a crunchy piece of bread this is a hearty staisifying meal.

    I've had this in my cookbook to save to try later. I needed a fast dinner tonight, happened to take out leftover ham. This is not only easy to prepare but absolutely delicious. I am so glad I tried this Thank you so much! I will definately be making this again.

    Easy and *delicious* I had so much ham to use up from Thanksgiving and this recipe is a God-send, I am going to give this a try using cream of potato soup next time, I also added in fresh ground black pepper and cayenne pepper and sprinkled the top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, very good, thanks Dawn!...Kitten:)

    This was great!! I used leftover spiral cut ham, I doubled the recipe. I didn't have peas and my family doesn't care for them so I used frozen corn. Will be making this often! Loved how fast this was to make!! Thanks for posting!


The joy of my life are my 2 sons, born in Dec. 00 and Jan. 04. I am currently a stay at home mom and love to make homemade meals and treats for my family. I live in PA, but the rest of my family are in AL and GA, and my boys and I spend weeks at a time in the South. I enjoy traveling with my husband and 2 sons. I am an Auburn University Alumni and a HUGE Auburn Tigers fan...WAR EAGLE! From August until November, you know what I'll be doing on Saturdays...watching ANY NCAA game on TV. I am also a fan of NASCAR. I have only been to 2 tracks, Talladega several times and Dover once, but I hope to visit many more. Pocono is only an hour away, so maybe someday! Atlanta is another real possibility with family close by. My furbaby Wickett (a pekinese-poodle mix I had for almost 14 years) went to live at the Rainbow Bridge on April 4, 2007. He was literally my first born child! He will always be in my heart. We have a new dog now, Roxie, who is a Shih-tzu. I am an animal lover, and will always have a pet! <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/222/511934835_9dc466e9a4_o.gif"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza">
