    This was a really great, fast dish to make. A reviewer suggested that it might be better with chicken, so I did use chicken, and it was delicious. I served it with a salad and it made a complete meal, low-calorie, low fat and delicious.

    This dish was a test for something different. My husband is not crazy about ham, but I like it. I followed all the ingredients except I cut out the poultry seasoning. I just added a little ground black pepper. It was very easy, but a little bland so I spiced it up with a side of jalepeno corn bread. My husband liked it ! I will be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Very easy to make and very good for you! Loved making it. I had to use cream of mushroom which was f99% fat-free which also made it salty. Not a pretty dish to look at but again, it is healthy for you and I will be making this again.

    This was easy to make but it just didn't work out for my family. The dish seemed overpowered by the celery,and the poultry seasoning clashed with the ham. (It might be better with chicken). It isn't a pretty dish so I put bread crumbs on top to hide it. We won't be having it again.


I'm a stay home mom of two little boys. My husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, my little fellas will eat anything, and I'm a vegetarian. One of my favorite things to do is sit and read a cookbook from cover to cover! My favorite cookbooks are ones with pictures of all the dishes.
