Here is another one that doens't last long at our house. Everyone loves it. A nice green salad or green beans go well with this. For my make ahead weekends, I prep the chicken and ham and combine with the cheese and freeze. Prep time does not include time to cook ham and chicken. The day to cook - just defrost in the refridgerator while I'm at work - and then make the sauce while the oven preheats. Leftovers are rare at our house but boy are they good!

- 3 cups ham, cooked and cubed
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

- 1 teaspoon nutmeg

Excellent! I used swiss instead of mozzarella cheese. Just thought it would be more like traditional cordon bleu.
I had leftover ham from Easter Dinner. We loved this casserole! Will be making often I bet.
Made as is except added 2 - 8oz. pkg. sauteed sliced mushrooms and used half shredded Swiss and half mozzarella. Topped with 1 sleeve crushed Ritz crackers mixed with 1/4 c. melted butter. Served with fresh green beans - excellent! Will definitely make again!
