This is a great way to use leftover ham…in fact, a friend of mine thinks it’s one of the best ham dishes she’s ever tried. I learned to love cooking while working alongside my mother, who owned a lodge and fast-food stand.

"I loved this recipe. It's very easy and my husband couldn't stop raving about it. I used Bisquick instead of making the bicuit dough from scratch. I will use this recipe again."
