Cooking Thursday

We had a nice ham dinner on Sunday, with lots of leftovers! I was looking for something to use that leftover ham in and I found this recipe. It was easy to throw together after work, was tasty and it's a different way to use ham. Next time I make it, I'll use about 3/4 of the bag of peas instead of the whole bag.

I always enjoy your recipes. This looks like one we'd really like. Sadly no left over ham this Easter, I fixed 2 big pot roasts instead. I have good left overs from that though. YUM!!

What a great way to use up leftover ham! My husband would love this, but sadly, I don't like egg noodles. Ssshhhhh...we won't tell him about this dish!

Sounds delicious!

Oh great. Now I have to buy a ham so I have some leftover ham! What a hardship. Thanks for this, Mari!

I have made a dish like this with leftover ham,but I don't add a full bag of peas either. It is a really good dish.

Sounds yummy! As for peas, I'd add another half a bag. My hubby and I can never get enough of the little green wonders.


I missed your post for Wednesday...LOL...I love bread, so this would have been a bit of heaven on earth for me....warm rools, and tons of butter [REAL butter] :::smacking my lips here:::

Your ham and noodle recipe is quite a bit like mine....but I never add mustard. I'm gonna have to try that....makes it a bit tangy, right?
