Creamed Ham on Cornbread

Denise Hershman of Cromwell, Indiana tops pieces of cornbread with a cheesy sauce chock-full of ham to make a satisfying and economical supper. "At only 45 cents a serving, this is one budget meal our family loves," she writes.

    The gravy tasted fine, I even added cooked broccoli, but mixing with cornbread is where I believe there were too many conflicting tastes. I would try it with rice or pasta instead.

    While the creamed ham was delicious, I just didn't like it on the cornbread. Maybe biscuits would be better, but then it would be really high calorie.

    My guys definitely want this again! I didn't have a cornbread mix around, so I just made a normal pan from scratch.

    I've made this store-bought cubed ham and it was good but the best way is to use left-over glazed ham. It takes a little more work that way, cutting up the ham, but it's well worth it and now every time we have ham my family all says "Save some ham for Creamed Ham on Corn Bread!"
