A good, quick recipe--even the kids liked it (and I've since given it to a few friends who enjoyed it). I did, however, make a change: I used Jiffy cornbread mix over the top to make it a truly...

For a quick, easy "pantry meal," I thought this was great. Gourmet? Of course not; but quick, tasty & satisfying. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to add garlic & more Worschstershire...

This dish was alright, but I can't say that I'd make it again. The combination just wasn't quite right to me and it seemed a little on the dry side.

This was an wonderful recipe. Very easy to make and something different to do with left over ham. I will diffently make this again.

This recipe was very easy to make with left over ham. My daughter really loved it she even wanted to eat the leftovers for breakfast!!! It definately was a keeper!

Good stuff. I used edamame instead of lima beans, tripled the worcestershire, doubled the onions, and added garlic

This works if you need a quick meal on a weeknight.

We liked this recipe but probably won't make it too often.
