Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

Red potatoes are recommended for this recipe because they're a little firmer than russets and hold their shape well.

For convenience, look for packages of cubed cooked ham in the packaged meat section of the supermarket.
