This was a nice recipe (somewhere between 3 1/2 & 4 stars, I believe..)- a serious 'comfort' food to be sure...! My husband loved it, and my DS's (5 & 3) as well as my DD (9 mo's) ate lots as well. I felt it was a bit too dry. If I would decide to make it again, I'd definitely add 1/4- 1/2 c. of milk, and probably cover the dish while baking, all but maybe the last 10 minutes, so the crumbs could brown. All in all, a great recipe - a twist on traditional ham & mac - w/ the addition of broccoli. Served w/ salad & applesauce - it went over well here in PA! Thanks for sharing!
My family really liked this. The spices were pleasing. I did add 2 or 3 TBS of milk because it seemed dry. This will be something I will make again.
This is a quick recipe for on the go however I did make changes. It was a little dry so I added a little more liquid. I didn't have broccoli soup so I added celery soup with small broccoli pcs. added to it. I made my own italian breadcrumbs. I also added about 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese for extra flavor. On top of the bread crumbs I also dotted it with a little butter because they were a little dry. However, the taste of this dish was very good and my family really liked it. I used a very lean ham and cut off all fats. It was very tasty. Thank you for the recipe, it will definitely go in my recipe file...my dh took the leftovers for lunch.
I made this tonight and everyone loved it. I added a bit of velveeta to it to make it a little cheesier. Next time I might cut back on the amount of seasoning, though. Just my personal preference. Dh thought it fine the way it's written. Also, I might drizzle a little melted butter over the breadcrumbs before baking. Thanks for a great recipe.
I thought this was great for what it is....a quick meal. Nothing beats homemade mac. and cheese, but who has time to prepare it at the last minute. I will definitely make this again when I have leftover ham....exactly as specified.
