Hawaiian Egg Rolls

As an avid cook, I am constantly trying to come up with recipes for leftovers. This one gives a whole new twist to extra ham. My two children think these egg rolls are wonderful, and they freeze well. I thaw as many as needed and bake them. —Terri Wheeler, Vadnais Heights, Minnesota
