"I make this every week now! Great for throwing in a sandwich bag running out the door in the morning. I have altered the recipe to use not only ham, but turkey, sausage, and other meats!"

"Fabulous! I use this every time I make mashed potatoes. I have breakfast covered for at least three days, and for a busy student this is a life saver. I find they taste mostly like the mash, and I love it! Going to try it with bacon instead of ham because we don't keep ham regularly."

"These were OK but not great; a bit too salty for my taste."
