This recipe has such simple ingredients, yet it was a hit with my man. He took the leftovers for lunch the next day and continued to sing its praises when he got home. It will be back on our dinner table. Thank you.
I have picky children when it comes to eating and both of mine loved it. I could taste the onion ( I am not an onion lover so next time I will use 1/2 an onion but that is only my preference)but my husband said it was just right!! I followed the recipe but used bacon instead of ham as that is what I had. Thanks for the recipe we will be having this often as they enjoyed it so much!!
Delicious just as posted, I didn't change a thing! I have a posted recipe similar to this one (Chicken and Ham Stuffing Casserole Chicken and Ham Stuffing Casserole); the major difference is that this recipe is minus the stuffing. This was a nice change because your recipe was great served over egg noodles with a side of mixed veggies. This would also be good over rice. Thanks for a nice recipe for dinner on a rainy, cool fall-like evening! This is a keeper.
