Using leftover ham, I made a breakfast themed casserole. A mix of vegetables, cheese, eggs and potatoes meld with the saltiness of ham to create a wonderful reincarnation of leftovers that your family will look forward to. Of course, as always, get creative, use your favorite vegetables and make a new tradition that will last in your family’s memories for years to come.
