This saucy casserole allows you to enjoy all the rich flavor of traditional chicken cordon bleu with less effort. It's a snap to layer the ingredients and let them cook all afternoon. Just toss a salad to make this meal complete. —Dorothy Witmer Ephrata, Pennsylvania

"As a lot of people have noted, this casserole is pretty soggy. I baked it in the oven for about an hour at 350. It's pretty greasy- I would cut down on the butter and the milk if I make it again. I'd also use cubed ham next time. I'm not sure why you'd want rolled up lunch meat. It was awkward trying to serve it with the ham rolled up everywhere. The flavor was pretty just needs less liquid and less butter."

"This was really good, thought it would be thicker though and next time I will definitely use cubed ham instead of rolled lunch meat."

"I love this recipe, the only change I would make is to cut the ham into chunks or strips. I use leftover ham chunks. Yummy!"

"My family loved it. I used only 1 cup of milk and only 4 slices of bread. It was a big hit!!"
