    My wife requested mac and cheese with ham for her birthday dinner so I found this recipe. I loved it! Unfortunately she didn't. She didn't like the flavor the gravy imparted to the dish, or I would have given it 5 stars. I used regular Kraft mac and cheese, and doubled the recipe. But, I omitted the onion as my wife is allergic.

    I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this for my families dinner. I had some ham I wanted to use up. When I made this I used Kraft mac & cheese. I also used canned gravy which I used the whole 10oz can. I left the cheese off the top. Overall I'd make this for sure. Thanks for posting a good recipe. Christine (internetnut)

    Definitely a kid-pleaser. The beef gravy adds extra flavor and moistness, but doesn't alter the color of the mac & cheese. I used a bit more onion and ham .... just because I had more ham to use up. All of the kids loved this. It's so easy to make, too. I'll make this for the kiddos again. Thanx for posting this.
