I use Ham in a lot of dishes year round. I buy the Ham steaks when they are on sale. They are great for more than Breakfast. I love to chop them and add them to Casseroles. Kielbasa is really good in this recipe as well. This recipe has been changed from an original that I had for many years. This is a simple tasty dish that I personally like very much. I know you'll like it too. Enjoy!
