Reviews for Ham and Broccoli Bake
"Very easy to make and good taste."
"Made it the night before like the recipe called for. Even after baking it for an hour it was too mushy and the bread was soggy. I followed the directions perfectly. I don't recommend this to anyone. It doesn't taste very good and the texture is terrible!"
"Ham and broccoli bake is a simple, easy breakfast that we absolutely love. We make it whenever we have all the ingredients and it's so simple and tastes so good, we will be keeping this recipe for a long time to come."
"My husband and I love this recipe. It will definitely stay in our favorites list. Edna"
"This recipe has a light but very odd texture to it. You get tired of eating it immediately and it begs for more flavor and substance. It was scraped off our dinner plates and thrown away!"
