  • Reviews

  • “Tasty quick and easy dish, I used more macaroni than the recipe asked for, which was probably a good thing because it was quite ‘runny’. But had a great flavour and everyone liked it. Thanks for posting =)”

  • “Simple and yummy! I added broccoli and it whipped together quickly.This will become a standard recipe around here. Thanks”

  • “I had some leftover ham steak; this was a great way to use it up. I divided the recipe into 2 small casserole dishes and froze one. The one we ate for supper was delicious!! The combination of flavours bought back childhood memories of a similar dish my mother used to make with leftover Easter ham. Thanks for sharing, we look forward to eating the frozen one, some night when we don’t feel like fussing.June 11, 2008 back to say that this is a regular on our menu. I always use 2 cups of whole wheat mac and a full cup of milk so that I have enough to freeze. It’s always tatey and I love having some in the freezer for lazy nights, this one was delicious and now I have another in the freezer, YUM!”

  • “The first time I prepared this recipe, I thought it was good – a little bland maybe – but still good. The second time I prepared it, I left off the corn flake crumbs and spread additional shredded cheese over the top instead. Then, during the last ten minutes or so of cooking time, I topped the casserole with French fried onions. Everyone absolutely loved the result. I prefer my version, but either way, it’s a good recipe.”

  • “I made this for dinner last night, and thought it was good.However, I felt it was lacking something. . .”

  • “I followed the recipe exactly except used only 1/2 can of mushroom soup (personal preference) and ended up using 1 cup milk.The worster and celery salt made a nice addition and complimented the other ingredients.I do not usually make ham casserole and so my husband was pleased that I made something “new”I love crushed corn flakes on all casseroles and it was probably what made me choose this recipe.Thanks for a great way to use up our holiday ham.KCShell”

  • “This was great!I got 3 thumbs up. I did double it, use a bag of chopped broccoli, and a pound of macaroni.I also put italian seasoned bread crumbs on top since we were out of cornflaks.Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “My DH who claims not to like casseroles, really enjoyed this dish. I used cream of broccoli soup, and thawed a 1/2 bag of frozen broccoli. I omitted the celery salt and cornflakes, for personal preference. I also added more noodles, about a cup and a half of dry elbows. A very quick and easy way to use up that leftover Easter ham.”

  • “Very easy and quick! I liked the addition of celery salt but I omitted the cornflakes on top. Mine wasnt runny though, like another reviewer notated, but I also used about 1 1/2 cups of macaroni. Thanks for an easy dinner!:)”

  • “This was surprisingly delicious!! Wonderful Flavour. I too used about 1 1/2 cups of macaroni, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. I sprinkled a little parsley on top with the conflake crumbs. A tasty, quick and easy casserole that I will be making again! “

  • “This is a good tasting, fast, and easy meal!(It also used a good portion of the ham left over from Thanksgiving dinner.I had to make some changes due to doubling and lack of groceries:I used a can of cream of celery soup along with the cream of mushroom, and omitted the celery salt.I also used ground seasoned croutons instead of cornflake crumbs.”

  • “I read comments, added more macaroni. Easy to put together, good flavor. Great way to use leftover ham. The grandchildren devoured this and ask if I would make it again. Very inexpensive. It is a Keeper! Thanks:>”

  • “What a great way to use leftover ham! Great recipe – my kids really liked it too since it reminded them of mac and cheese. I used about 1 1/2 cups dry macaroni, so I added more milk when I mixed up the casserole. Very easy and tasty.”

  • “Noted previous review; added a little less milk and cheese and additional macaroni…my family loved this casserole…Will definitely make it again…SharonP.”
