    This was just okay for me. I used a package of diced ham and a package of pre-shredded fresh potatoes. Maybe the ground ham would have made a difference. I served it for supper, but probably would have enjoyed it more for breakfast/brunch. Maybe it would be good with an egg, sour cream and salsa on top. I should experiment more.

    I was needing a recipe for leftover ham and found this one. Very easy and economical to prepare it was delicious. Would make a very good brunch dish.

    for lmnh8--I use my cuisinart's steel blade and pulse the ham until I see the size I want.

    My dad loves this. It turned out really good. I have made it for him at least 6 times already.

    I tried this for work. Changing it just a bit. I didn't have ham so used bacon and used Dubliner cheese rather then the ones listed. Plus used 2 eggs and a 1/4 cup of milk. It was delish.
