Yum!!! I make the same recipe, but instead of ham...I use bulk breakfast sausage. We call it "Tumbleweed"!!!

We used to devour it back in my younger drinking daze.

This sounds very good. But I think I would use the sausage too. I would aslo throw in some freshly saute'd mushroom slices as well.

I'm gettin Hungry. Can't make this kind of stuff anymore. But for those of you who can eat it, you might as well enjoy it. :D
