Which John Morrell ham are you using in this recipe? Is it a ham steak?

Hi Lauren,

It's the diced John Morrell ham the you can find prepackaged already diced. Not ham steak.

I made this last night for my hubs. I doubled it all to freeze one for later (and to use the shredded swiss). It was really tasty. Thank you so much for sharing!
