Reviews for Creamed Ham and Asparagus
"This is tasty. Would be a great addition to a brunch Buffett. I used old white cheddar cheese. Excellent way to use up left over baked ham."
"Have made this many times often for company and love the flavors. Lost recipe, just found it on line. Exceptional flavor and great for what it is, to be served with toast. I prefer a thicker sauce so looking for ways to make it thicker."
