Reviews for Ham & Veggie Casserole
"Tasted good & cheesy! I used a package of broccoli & a package of mixed veggies. I just wanted more variety in the vegetables. I didn't toast the bread crumbs since I used seasoned panko bread crumbs sprinkled on top."
"My family really liked this hearty casserole. I used the frozen California blend veggies instead of just broccoli and cauliflower and the carrots in that blend were a good addition, I thought. We really enjoyed the dish and it was a great way to use up some leftover Easter ham."
"I am in agreement that it needs more seasoning perhaps garlic."
"I thought this casserole was good. I did add some Italian Seasoning. Veggies were not too over done for me."
"The frozen vegetables were a little mushy; I might try starting with fresh veg next time."
"Nice, good sauce. Needs spices, more than the pepper, maybe garlic, rosemary....whatever you,like with ham."
