I passed on the ham, but followed the ratios after that...I am prepping for a 4th of July party for one! I sprinkled some dill weed on the top when done for a dash more color and a hint of dill. I didn’t add my usual paprika, only to avoid a red/green Christmas look!!! Ed

I made this with Kraft macaroni and cheese and added some yellow mustard. Even the kids loved it !

It was very good! I cut the recipe in half and it would still feed a small army. I added horseradish sauce, deli mustard, ground pepper, and relish for some extra kick. Already know what I will change the next time, for it is a keeper.

This was easy and good, I made it as directed first then after trying it I took some of it and added McCormick salt and spice seasoning to it it was just a little kick that enhanced the flavors.
