MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 9, 2013

This is a great recipe. We have been making this for years, pretty much the same way using low fat milk and we add a good handful or two of peas to it as well.

This was great, even using reduced fat Colby, fat free milk and margarine! I wasn't nuts over the 3 pan cleanup, but will make again.

MY REVIEW

I LOVE this recipe. It has to be one of my all time favorites. The texture is amazing. I always look forward to winter when we have ham so I can use the leftovers to make the ham dices. It is pretty simple to make and everyone who eats it loves it.

We usually make this just on the stovetop and skip the baking steps. One of my family's favorites! Thanks for a great, easy, weeknight recipe!

Wasn't a fan. I thought it was kind of dry.
