Reviews for Double-Duty Ham & Noodle Bake
"Great recipe! Very versatile so you can use whatever you have on hand to add, or not. I used diced jalapenos in place of diced chilies just because my family loves the ester "heat." Everyone enjoyed this and don't forget the onions for that extra crisp!"
"This is a great recipe for leftover Easter ham! I didn't use the green chilies or French fried onions, only because I didn't have them on hand. I did add sauteed onion and fresh mushrooms to the mix to compensate for the missing ingredients. Even with the substitutions, it was wonderful! Five stars, for sure!"
"I always read the comment before trying a recipe from TOH and I just had to write and tell you this is a wonderful dish. My husband loved it and I will be making it again. Its a keeper!"
"Very tasty and easy to put together. Might add a jar of pimentoes for color next time..."
"My husband loved this! Perfect for leftover ham from Easter. He really liked the chilies addition."
