      This looks delicious! With all of the ham we still have leftover from New Year's, I've been on a leftover ham recipe kick trying to find creative ways to use it in a delicious way.

      I'm going to have to give this one a shot this afternoon. It looks absolutely yummy! Thank you for the great recipe!
