"Been quite some time since I've made this, always goes over well! i usually make only half recipe since we are empty nesters. I use the 3 cups chopped broccoli as recipe calls for, and full can **cream of** soup. Cream celery soup works very well, too. How 'bout trying it out on your family!!"

"Ham, broccoli, and potato is always a great combination as far as I'm concerned. However, I feel like it's missing something....salt, more pepper, more cheese, etc. Can't really put my finger on it though."

"This recipe was awesome with my leftover holiday ham. I used what I had on hand, frozen veggies since I was out of broccoli, and I was in a hurry and forgot the flour. Also, I only needed two servings so I reduced this significantly, but after all that, it still came out great. Thanks so much for the recipe!! I really enjoyed making this mainly because it didnt have difficult ingredients that couldnt be subsituted."
