Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
2-3 cups of cubed ham (left-overs will do)
2-3 cups of cubed potatoes
(These amounts depend on the size of your pie plate)
Top and bottom crust for your size pie plate



Directions:
Directions:
In one pot, put in cubed potatoes and enough water to cover. Cook until just slightly soft. (If too soft will get mushy in pie.) In another pot, put cubed ham and water and simmer. When these are done, drain both, but SAVE THE BROTH FROM BOTH POTS. Combine broths in one pot and keep it warm. Put drained ham and potatoes in pie plate lined with bottom crust. Add top crust, cut a few holes to let out steam, and bake in 450 oven until crust is slightly brown.

To serve, put a piece of pie on your plate. Add butter and some of the broth you saved. Chopped onions go well, too.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is from my neighbor Pat, who was also the preschool teacher for all four of my children. It's an old family recipe, so no specific amounts are written down, but she did give me the basics. It is simple, filling and delicious -- and smells wonderful while baking.
