MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2011

"Very good as written. I did increase the amount of ham to 1½ cups."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2010

"This was extremely bland- had very little flavor. It needs garlic at least to save it! As written, this recipe is not worth making again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 9, 2010

"I have made this recipe many times and we really enjoy it. We've reduced the oil and butter by half and it's still quite tastey!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2010

"I'd seen different versions of this recipe, but this one has most everything one would have on hand. Spicing it up with garlic a bit is a good idea. Maybe a bit less veg. oil next time. I will make this again and again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2009

"This has been a favorite recipe of ours since I first saw it in the magazine years ago! Made as is, it is a mild flavor so over the years I have added some addition of garlic and chili pepper to our liking. Can't believe no one has ever rated this recipe... its a keeper!"
