MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2016

"Kid friendly! Worried that it only said 4 servings. However, very hearty portions with a lot of leftovers. Made a great dinner after the Holidays. Used leftover ham and last of processed cheese. Equally good eaten straight from stove or after baked in oven with crunchy topping. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I appreciated the ability to use ingredients I had on hand without making trip to store."

"Delicious - used real instead of processed cheddar and just over 1 c. of chopped ham. I think it would be even better with a bit of grainy mustard - next time I'll add about a tbsp to the cheese sauce."

"This is a great recipe. Never again will I make ham & eggs or ham omelet with my leftover ham. I used fat free milk, low fat shredded cheddar & broccoli instead of peas. I also used panko bread crumbs instead of regular dried bread crumbs. Delicious!"
