Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. I created this recipe on my own. Growing up, my father was a creative cook, and I always loved his home made mac and cheese that contained diced green pepper. The other ingredients that my recipe contains were added because I love seasonings, along with the combined flavors with quality baked ham.
- 20 ounces Simply Macaroni & Cheese (Creamy Homestyle)
- 1 lb baked ham, cubed
- 1 small green pepper, diced
- 2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash table blend seasoning
- 1 cup garlic butter croutons
