I'm sorry but this just didn't seem to turn out correctly. It was too soft and runny for our tastes so I ended up serving it over toasted rolls. Perhaps it needs more mashed potatoes as the previous reviewer suggested or even cubed cooked potatoes would work nicely.

This a great quick and easy meal! Wonderful recipe if you have leftover mashed potatoes. I made it exactly as written, but I used 3 cups of mashed potatoes instead of only two. I used regular cheddar instead of reduced-fat. I was thinking it might be bland, but it really isn't. We had steamed broccoli on the side, and I think that some chopped broccoli would go well in the casserole (in the ham layer). Green onion would be good in this, too. Best of all, it's a tummy-warming kid-pleaser (and I'll need to double this next time:))! Thanx for posting this. We'll be eating this again.
