When there’s a mess of ham leftover from an event or you want to use up extra ham in your freezer, here’s a recipe that is tasty and filling. You can change the amount of ingredients to suit your fancy. I prefer to use a recipe that doesn’t require flour for thickening, and this one works for me.
You can substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream, or skip that altogether and just use milk. If you’re not a fan of garlic and/or onions, you can omit one or both of those items. At any rate, adding a lean vegetable to this menu helps round out the meal comfortably.
Using fresh chives is the best option, but you can use dried chives instead. Or you can nix the chives. It all depends on what you prefer.
