    Had exactly 2 1/2 pounds of ham leftover from a group meal, and was looking for something to do with it. Stumbled across this recipe and could not believe how easy it was to prepare. We put the whole recipe in a shallow 12x24 inch baking pan, and it fit perfectly. It was absolutely delicious. Can be used as a main entree or as a side dish, but either way, it is filling and tastes great.

    delicious! the sauce was excellent. Potatoes turned out tender but not mushy. I did add sliced onions to mine. Will definitely make again.

    I didn't have 2 hours to cook this dish so I put the potatoes in my Ninja Foodie and pressure cooked it for just two minutes. I added all of the other ingredients and heated it with the "air crisp" feature for about 15 minutes. I added some additional pepper and salt.
