"I was lucky enough to have some leftover ham from Christmas,and decided to use it as part of my New Year's Day Dinner. I've used bacon " drippings " to brown the onions in,even though it wouldn't taste the same you could use canola oil for the onions. Since I didn't list any salt and pepper in the list of ingredients, I'll leave the amounts up to you. To make this part of real " Southern Style Comfort Meal " serve it with #recipe4532, #recipe10767,and your favorite leafy green veggie. If you want this to serve four add about 1/2 cup of cooked white rice. Submitted to " ZAZZ " on 1/2/14. " Keep Smiling :)"
