Ham and potatoes everyone? This recipe is off the charts! I am so glad that I decided to try it because I never would have tasted the delicious flavor of the milk sauce. It is very simple to make yet it tastes incredible. These days, I need something to get my mind of things because of this pandemic we are facing. Thank God, I was able to find a new hobby, which is cooking! This recipe is just one of the many dishes I am going to try. I hope you try it as well. Enjoy!
