After Easter is done and over with, there's usually some leftover ham that needs to be used up! Today's recipe is perfect for that. I love skillet meals, and this one is pretty delicious!! It's super easy to make, and only uses one skillet, which is perfect for weeknights when you don't feel like spending much time in the kitchen, either cooking or doing dishes.
I love ham and broccoli together and add some sharp cheddar cheese to it?? Perfection. This is one dish we could eat over and over. I know it will be back on the menu again soon! Enjoy!
