Broccoli Ham Stroganoff

This tasty main dish is a snap to prepare in the microwave and takes just minutes to make. It's a great way to use up extra ham...and it works equally well with leftover chicken or turkey. The smooth white sauce gets added creaminess from sour cream. -Amanda Denton, Barre, Vermont

    This was very tasty, and my family appreciated it as a way to use up leftover ham. Truthfully, though, I think it tastes better using a can of mushroom soup and no flour. I also made it with fat free Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream, and used fresh broccoli. I mixed everything up and baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes. I have made this more than once, and have made these changes after using the original recipe. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I made it with wheat flour and added feta cheese, garlic powder, and a dash of season salt. The feta cheese gave it a salty flavor boost that it was lacking since I used homemade low sodium chicken broth I used Will make again. I probably could have saved time doing it all on the stove top.

    I didn't have enough sour cream so made up the differecne with Lemon Yogurt. My husband was pleased with the result. I always like it when an emergency substitution yields a new way to prepare a recipe.

    I had to reread the recipe several times, no milk? There is the chicken broth, but the sour cream taste is prominent. It has too much of a twang to it(my husband and daughter agreed), will have to doctor it up.

    This has become a family favorite. I make it at least twice a month. I OFTEN PREPARE IT, PUT IT IN A GIANT ZIPLOCK BAG & FREEZE IT. Then it comes out of the freezer at breakfast time (or run the bag under warm water to defrost quickly) and I "heat it through" while the noodles are cooking. EASY & DELICIOUS!!
