Pot pie of any kind has been a favorite for as long as I can remember. Comfort food at best! And a great way to use up leftover ham during the holidays. There is just something about ham, swiss cheese, potatoes and cream that I love with a pinch of nutmeg. Nutmeg is optional but in my opinion adds to this dish. Hope you enjoy!
