My Aunt Kay co-owned a restaurant and this is her special recipe. A MUST for left-over ham! Over the years I've made it easier and single family sized. ENJOY!

My wife requested mac and cheese with ham for her birthday dinner so I found this recipe. I loved it! Unfortunately she didn't. She didn't like the flavor the gravy imparted to the dish, or I would have given it 5 stars. I used regular Kraft mac and cheese, and doubled the recipe. But, I omitted the onion as my wife is allergic.
