Excellent dish! My boyfriend made this for us last nite and he thought it was really easy to do. I liked the crunchy topping especially. There were a ton of leftovers, so we both have lunch today. We used the fat free 1/2 & 1/2, still turned out nice and creamy. Tuna could also be substituted for the ham next time.
