    This was great. Didn't put onions or Pimentos in it just because I didn't have any. My husband loved it he had it for lunch and again for supper. We will have this again.

    This is a good recipe and I plan to make it again. I think other cooked meats, such as chicken or turkey could be substituted for the ham.
