Reviews for Ham a la King with Peas
"At Krogers in the frozen foods under Desserts I found the puff pastries. Have not tried this recipe yet because I wanted the ones that couldn't find the pastries help. This looks really good and will re post after I try it."
"My gosh.... I love this recipe! My husband and grandkids always ask me to cook this again! Thank you for sharing."
"Loved it with ham. Would be even better with chicken; I added extra peas. Very easy receipe."
"This was a wonderful quick recipe. I adjusted it accourding to our likes. I left out the olives, added a little extra peas. I used biscuits instead of the puff pastry as I couldn't find the pastry in our store."
