Top Review by Leslie

We really enjoyed this casserole! I used a combo of Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese, and lots of leftover ham. I did do one thing differently, I made a roux with a mixture of milk and cheese, and poured it on top. I did this only because we thought we would like it a bit saucier and cheesier. I am sure it would have been great without it though! Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring salted water to the boil and gently add the macaroni. Cook until tender, that is about 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and while still in the sieve pass quickly under cold running water.
  2. Chop the ham into small pieces, then put with the macaroni in a casserole. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Beat the eggs and the cream together and pour over the macaroni. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake in a 350F oven until the sauce has cooked and become a light brown.
