My mother made this recipe many times while I was growing up. I remember leaning on the table to watch her. Cooking has always been a hobby of mine, along with sewing and crafting.

MY REVIEW

I would leave out the salt all together as the ham, saltines and the chesse all have salt in them. The recipe says Diabetic Friendly but I Found that is was not Heart Friendly.

Our house is big on flavor, so I substituted about 1/4 C diced green pepper in place of the pimientos (sauteed them with onions in first step.) We also used low-salt saltines, Penzey's Northwoods seasoning in place of the salt, and a few healthy shakes of Durkee's Peppery Mustard grill creations seasoning for the pepper. It was 'delish!

This was a very tasty and easy casserole to put together. I used 2 bags (16 oz each) of defrosted cauliflower. Microwaved about 4 minutes and drained before adding.
