Easy Ham Over Biscuits Recipe

If you are like me, you don’t have many good recipes for leftover holiday ham. This recipe is especially good after Easter as it calls for ham and hard boiled eggs.  The combination of ham, eggs, and biscuits with a creamy white sauce is a great comfort food. My kids eat it up.  This recipe is easy and makes 6-8 servings.
