Leftover Ham and Macaroni Casserole

Total Time

This is a wonderful, easy recipe to use up those holiday ham leftovers. You can add some veggies. I would suggest any of all of 1/2 cup celery, 4 oz. can of mushrooms, olives or peas. Even my picky kids love it and it has that homemade mac n cheese flavor. Adapted from a Mary Margaret McBride recipe, an ingenious woman, incredibly knowledgable for her time.

I made this to put in the freezer because I have so much left-over ham. I did taste it before I put it in the freezer. It was delecious! The only thing I did different is add some broccoli.

Not sure if I will be making this again. I liked it; however, my two kidlets didn't care for it - they didn't eat the Easter ham either though.

This was very easy to make, and my two young kids and my husband liked it. I will add this to my list of recipes.
