Creamy Ham & Peas Over Spuds

Rose Daly


I had some leftover ham that I didn't know what to do with and Chef came up with the idea for this recipe. And Chef SarasotaCook came up with the name. Thanks to both of you for helping me create this recipe. I bet this would also be good over toast,biscuits,noodles, or even rice.
