With Easter coming this weekend, I will make the traditional ham. I usually make scalloped potatoes with it.
When I first met my husband, his Mom always made ham gravy with her ham and of course mashed potatoes. I always thought the gravy tasted like salt water. LOL! I would never say anything, though. Hubby loved it. He loves all gravies.
I am thinking about making mashed potatoes and ham gravy this year. Although, I don't want it to taste like salt water gravy. If anyone makes this, please let me know if you have a good recipe. Maybe MIL just didn't have enough of ham bits in it to make the difference in the ham flavor. Or perhaps it is just an acquired taste.
Do you celebrate Easter? Will you be having a ham? We will also have a veggie tray, pickled eggs, green beans and some kind of dessert. I haven't decided on that yet. Maybe a coconut cream pie.
