Sweet Onion Ham

Lauren Conforti


I had some leftover ham that I sliced thin, intending to use for sandwiches. But I made this instead! I wish I had shown more onions in the picture... I put a lot of onions in this and I think it goes well with the sweetness of the pineapple, and the saltiness of the ham. A nice blend!
